Wow, what a treat this last page. Carsten, your interior shots are amazing. The catwalk over arched window shot ( #1 of this streak ) is just gorgeous. Love the wood floor rendition and soft light coming through window. Similarly, the theater shot from seating with light filtering through proscenium is really groovy. The POV of shot from the stage is great, but in terms of lighting, I like the one from seating a little more. Very nice wood seats. I also like the shots from Tempelhof. Second one, once again, the light and composition is superb. Nice little touch with the broom on the column

Lieutenant - This last shot is great. You and Ant blow me away with your great street works.

Ronny - Gorgeous flower shot yet again.

Bob - Nice capture of the dramatic sky of a neighboury day

RSSmith - Nice work with Cy28. Nice shot of reflecting pool.

Wilhelm - I like the 'framing' with planar !

briantho - really nice composition with foliage framing around the gazebo. Gorgeous color

4 hand held shots stitched - CY 1.4/50 probably shot around f 6.3, D700

Thank you Ronny.

Yet again another brilliant flower shots. #2 is amazing. Great composition, gorgeous color, really yummy oof rendition. What was the F-stop ? Instinctively thought 6.3, but have no idea after looking at it a while.

Some shots with the 5Dc & Zeiss Pancolar 50mm 1.8 (m42) (the exif shows f1.4, but that's wrong,they were shot @ f1.8 or f4)

I had a Pancolar 50mm 1.8 which seemed VERY sharp @ 1.8, but then the focus ring got stuck,i gave it to somebody to repair it,but it wasn't sharper anymore after that and also the mfd was 0.45 instead of 0.35.

I the purchased an identical 50mm 1.8 Pancolar (first & second were the zebra version).

This one sometimes I find sharp,sometimes not (@ 1.8), but I'm sure this is due to the AF confirmation of the adapter (m42 to EOS adapter).

Since this is a Zeiss thread, I was thinking of ditching the Pancolar and getting a Biotar 58mm f2.

In terms of sharpness is the Biotar as ok as the pancolar? Also as far as bokeh goes, I think the Biotar is better (it's like the the Helios 58mm f2)

What other fast glasss from zeiss is out there that's affordable?

I was thinking of a Takumar 50/55 1.4 or a Zeiss 50 1.4, but I don't know the exact model/ names for the 1.4s

I know there is a Pancolar 1.4 but it seems it's too expensive (200 pounds on ebay)

Ronny - Thanks for the full disclosure It must be a pretty big flower. The crispness of image and the yet not completely dissolved bokeh made me think it was stopped down, but I am happy to find out how well 100MP performs at f2.

The Contax Zeiss Planar 50/1.4 would be a very good choice. I've had the Pancolar 50/1.8 and I liked it, but the Contax 50/1.4 has more vivid colors, which I like. I think that the Biotar 58/2 will have more muted colors like the Pancolar.

The Super Takumar 50/1.4 is supposed to be very good as well, but I believe it may not clear the mirror of the 5D at infinity focus?

Can you tell me how does the Biotar 58 f/2 (m42) stack up against my Planar (zebra) 50 1.8 (m42) in terms of IQ (sharpness, bokeh,color rendition, etc etc)?

First shots with my new Contax Zeiss 28 2.0.
Liking it so far. however need a new adapter for my 5d MKII, probably leitax, getting tired of my no name adapter screwing with the aperture...

Bokeh at 2.0






Wall at 2.8-4 (not sure)






5.6

thebratts - congrats on the new acquisition. It looks plenty sharp. If #2 is wide open, that is really good, and I see no vignetting either. ( You might have pp'ed it out. )

Another CY50 fall color from a few weeks ago at Minnewaska State Park.

Looking good!

No mirror or infinity issues? What version do you have (AE/MM)?

An easy fix for the aperture could be to snip of a tiny bit of the aperture lever with pliers. You'll probably see where it touches in the mirror box (if I remember correctly it's close to the contacts). I got the tip from fellow MF:ers and it remedies the same problem on the CY 50/1.4 (MMJ) - while still working just fine on a Contax S2 SLR.

Luka, nice fall colors and detail. I would crop out the white sky, which would bring mote attention to th e colorful trees in the foreground.
Thebratts, congrats on your new lens!

Luka, again great colors and I agree with Wayne about the sky.
Wayne, looks like you get a lot of resolution from that combo. Interesting photo from a room I am glad I never had to visit while it was being used.
thebratt, congrats to the new lens. 28 mm is a fun focal length to shoot.

Here is a simple on from my favourite Zeiss lens, the ZE 85 Planar

Wayne, Joakim - Thanks so much for your comments. I see what you mean, but I already posted one that had only leaves, and I wanted to keep the sense of expanse of the scene. Some more work needed, I like those challenges


Wayne - Very cool shot with deep DOF. It has the hyper real feeling to it. Sterile lighting adds that feeling too.

thebratts - Fun shot. Bokeh is certainly on the funkier side, but I like the way how used it for your scene.

Joakim - SImple and yet very beautiful with the PP work. BW works the abstraction very well on that scene.

Carsten -Very yummy rendering. f2.8 for the second shot is very effective. The repeating vertical plants on #2 reminds me of contemporary sculpture. Love the color.
