Nice shot. Are you going to take it outside one day?


Heh, well its snowing, so not today. I took a few shots outside already, but nothing interesting. 50mm on APS-C is bit too long for me I think. Or sometimes not enough.

And S5 was a bit disappointing.

"Old and new"



Tho its matter of perspective, as 6 mpix APS-C its not disappointing and not many cams can pull this off (or at least not in one shot). Original shot is way flatter, so some DR sacrifice was needed in order to get some contrast.

Contax 50/1.4 MM Planar *T
Fuji S5 Pro @ ISO 400

I put it down to the lens and camera, and pretty fair light conditions. It can be a bokeh monster for slow 100mm, carsten was asking for some images from it a few weeks back. It's a pretty useful lens as a walk around option, and has a very flat field with Sonnar character. I also wanted to show the how the sensor works with other lenses than the RX1. Akul, I see very little CA in it, perhaps you do however ;-)

Nice one (#1)

I am no CA detector. No I do not see any offending CA in those. bokeh on #2 seems a bit on the hard side but not offensive either.

Agree. The S100 has its "good" bokeh on the near side (CZ SOP), but that shot looks to be at MFD. In most case, this lens has awesome defocus blur. One of my favs optically, and for handling. Glad to see it action, Philip. BTW, what camera?

Sony A99 according to the EXIF.

The Sonnar 100/3.5 does look like a great lens and nice job on finding those shots Philip.

Very sharp and great colours, but the boke is really special. I guess this is very much a lens to be learned.

Haven't shot many photos with Sonnar T* 3.5/100 C/Y, considering how much I like the rendering. I guess it's because having Makro-Planar T* 2/100 ZE almost always with me. However checked Aperture Library for some Sonnar photos.

Lens has really great bokeh, even wide open. Also all other aspects are very good already wide open, however I tend often prefer f/4 which helps with vignetting (and specially issues vignetting causes to bokeh) and causes small improvement to contrast. Worst in lens is magenta/green color errors in bokeh.

For limited time there will be also 2048px version available of photos below:

The f/4 and f/3.5 shots of trees are exactly the kind of stuff I love from you, and this lens does do it really well. Interesting lens.

Agree, I may be a sucker for old cars including Volvo 142's but that 3.5 rendering is very attractive and 3D:ish in that first image. But I would doubt using it having a CY 100/2.

Very clever, Walrus. I'm not at all a fan of tilted pics, but this one had my scratching my head for at least two minutes. It works so well with the extra headroom to accentuate the "vertical" corrugation, and the complete lack of other cues - not even a plumb-line. Love the square, too.

That one's neat, would have loved to come across the location. I do believe it would have an even stronger visual impact if you ran it through, say, PS distortion correction. There's both perceptive distortion and some barrel distortion that is easily correctable.

Thanks rico. I am always happy to confuse you and suppose two minutes of viewing time is long for images posted in this forum.

You are right. I am annoyed with myself for not getting it right on location and for being too lazy to apply the corrections before presenting the image to an audience.

I have just replaced the image by an improved version.
