Edward - Thanks. I did not quite think of these materials for BW candidate. Now you got me curious though.

Ronny - Thanks. Nice atmosphere on the apple shot. Nice color scheme.

hiepphotog - I like the #2. Really nice sky contrasting the asphalt.

Wilhelm- You are on a roll. Quite nice bw. There is some drama there. I don't know how you managed to escape being caught in reflection. Nice to not to hear about 'AA filter' etc with film eh ? And, thank you. Yes, 21 is an amazing lens, I am slowly catching up to the lens capability.

Some ZF.2 100 shots

Ronny, lovely flower shot as usual. I have to pm you when I am free to learn how you process these. I like the expression of the dog, longing for something, in the previous shot better.

I'm on a mission to take one pict a day for this month (Dyxum's Oktoberfest), so I have to torture you guys with all these pictures (some admittedly crappy).

These shots are very attractive, almost reminding me more of Leica lenses than Zeiss lenses. There seems to be effortless resolution and fine detail everywhere. How do you find using this lens? Do you have any near/wide open shots, say portraits or similar?

Carsten, thank you. This lens has the best WO resolution of all 50ish 1.4 or faster I have tried (CV, Canon FD Asph, Rokkor 58, Hexanon 57, Pentax 50 and Sigma 50, etc.). What is more appealing is the minimal haze (SA) at WO. CA control at WO is quite good, but certainly with extremely high contrast scene, I can still see tons of PFs (I don't know of any fast 50ish that wouldn't have this). Center is sharpest at f/4, while corner to corner sharpness (mostly because of FC) on APS-C would need f/8, much sharper than the Sigma (not saying much since the Sigma is quite weak when stopping down).

I got it from a collector so everything is mint condition. Mechanically, both the focus ring and the aperture ring are smooth and well-dampened.

Right now, I don't have any portrait with this lens, but hopefully I have some today. For other WO shots, you can check here:

Thank you guys.

Ronny - Beautiful flower shot as usual. Would you mind sharing your secret?

Fly - Drove out there after work, a bit of hiking to the top just in time to catch the sunset (a 90-minute trip)

Ah yes, I remember those shots now. I wanted to comment at the time but probably got distracted. The boke is sometimes wonderful, but at other times it is very swirly, as if there is significant mechanical vignetting or something. Under what circumstances do you see this?

The busy bokeh, I think, has more to do with how much SA is corrected than mech. vignetting. The Contax 35/1.4 has a similar behavior as well. From what I have seen, this one is quite similar to the Hexanon 60mm 1.2 (sharp WO with swirly bokeh at time). It might also have the painterly look bokeh that I have yet encountered. This is a good review of the Hexanon:
