It looks like this lens is very well suited to portrait photos. Nice shot.

I see people that have the 21, 35/2 and also a 28.

I'm thinking about this lens but I'm asking myself, and now you, if the 25/2 is a better choice. (IQ and FL wise).

I already got the 21 and 35/2.

thx!

I would say that the spacing with the 25/2 would be better. 28 and 35 are not so different. I have not tried the 25/2, but it is meant to be very good, if you can put up with some dirty corners until stopped down. I own the 28/2 and love it, but it is a bit special, requiring avoiding certain types of subjects. It also has dirty corners, field curvature and heavy vignetting, but if you like the 35/2, I guess the vignetting doesn't bother you.

Eventhough I agree with Carsten in principle, I personally would find it difficult to squeeze something between the 21 and the 35. The line up would be unnecessarily too crowded. I have solved this problem by opting for a 18/25/35 line up, with consistent spacing. But if I had the 21/35, I would personally leave it at that.

By the way, Philippe, great b/w photos!

Nice shots. It looks like the foliage and the light are moving into the yellow regions now?

hiepphotog - Nice portrait. Seems quite sharp at 1.2 . Also I do not notice much haze like planar with the this distance and light condition.

Ronny - Your flower is just something else. Great color, composition.

ebookman - Nice color on the pumpkin.

LIeutenant - Great BW set of beetle. #1 is superb, #2 is humorous. Great pp work.

Xtobolic - I also got a 21(ZF) 28 (CY 28) and 35s ( ZF 1.4 and 2 ) And, 25 has been luring me. Actually, as I am a Nikon shooter, I am considering the 2.8 as I understand it is rather small. However, the color I see from 25 f2 is superb, and that is a very charming lens.

Phillip Reeve - Beautiful shots. Love the 28 shots especially #4. However, 45 rendition is quite lovely as well.

From Harriman State Park last weekend. Unfortunately, there is possibly a murder suspect hiding in the park somewhere now, which made our stay rather short.

akul, really like that shot. The almost cotton-like greens contrasting the crispness of the trees, the depth... wow!

Rented the 2/25 and 100/2 this past weekend and was surprised at how light each was. 25 was just short of amazing. Distortion was non-existent and only crept in with close up shots. Copy I had was not 0.4x max mag...more like 0.25. Checked it against Leica 100 APO and the Zeiss 2/100. Otherwise, just a superb lens and tremendous blues and earth tones.

100mm is my favorite focal length, and I loved the steep focus falloff, but the focus ring had a fair amount of focus creep (perhaps from rental abuse), making close up shooting pointed down at the ground somewhat problematic. Focus not as well damped as my Leica but still very precise.

Nice job on both lenses, Zeiss. But why does every ZE lens hood vignette terribly? Sure, they look pretty, but the hood for the 25 and my 35 might as well be ornamental.

Thank you for your kind comment Carsten, Ronny, Luka and Z. Very much appreciated.

Ronny - Another excellent shot. How did you light these shots? Front uniform lighting with some sort of continuous light source from the back.

Z - I like the first B&W shot, very interesting.

Phillip - I like them all, especially the 2nd.

Luka- nice capture. I love the depth as well. This Contax doesn't much haze at half body distance. With full body, if I do a 100% zoom, I would see some glow, but not much. I would not hesitate to shoot WO with this lens.

I have been at a conference with a few colleagues in San Antonio for several days. So these are some pictures that I have captured there.

Contax 55mm

f/1.2

























f/8













This shot is an interesting case of filter flare. The picture itself is not that sharp due to motion blur (1/10s). This was taken after the Alumni party.

Wilhelm, Ronny, Carsten, Lieutenant, hiepphotog - Thank you !!

Ronny - Nice contrast and timing for the train in the scene. To be honest, I would love to see a bit bigger though.

Degriman - Ilke the composition.

hiepphotog - I like the #2 with the dramatic lighting.

ZF.2 f2/100
