No. I finally realized there's a swimming pool in the foreground (cleverly cropped out).

Actually that is just a bicycle stand, identical to the one further away.

I found this overview picture on the web.

Not much activity here lately..

Bit different way than I shoot flowers usually, this time ended better than regular shot (due my inability to focus decently and underexposure). Contax 50/1.4 MM isnt exactly great near MFD, but still pretty decent. What isnt decent are Fuji S5 Pro colors. No matter what color profile I try, its always bit off (usually due red cast). That and exposure meter doesnt play nice with this lens (or is S5 set to "heavy underexpose" on default). At least it doesnt have much problems with noise..

Well, enough b*tching, time to get another camera.

i have a zeiss 21mm f/2.8, and i use it for landscape photography.

is it generally a bad idea to put a circular polarizer filter on a 21mm?

at about which focal length does it become a bad idea to put a circular polarizer filter on?

Foto dude, you really have to experiment, a close look in the VF and instant review are your best friends (almost typed 'fiends', might be a better description).

Anyway, for variable blue skies the Pol will accentuate the effect, it can be artistic, sometimes very off-putting. More often the best use is to quell reflections and glare, if you have the 2 stops to spare. 35mm looks pretty normal as a starting point, but it is all case specific sadly. No golden rules..

Four uninteresting shots, which do show the rendering of the ZF Planars. In order: 85P@2.0, 50P@2.0, 50P@1.4, 50P@2.8, all on Nikon D800:

Hm, rendering is similar to old Planar, but it seems sharper.. Tho I dont have D800 to test it.

Nice test btw. maybe I could get 85P next..

The 85P is sharper wide open than the 50P I think, although these shots don't show how much work I had to do to the 50P wide open shot to make it look sharp

If its not that different from my old 50P then I have very good idea how much work it took.

Actually it does seem to be. I hadn't realised that the wall ran there, but it appears to have:

I found an interactive map of the wall, but it doesn't seem to have any way to save a location. I have added a little black square right on the guard tower, near the bottom-right of the cluster of points, close to Oberbaumbruecke:

Rollei badged Zeiss lenses, but also Schneiders. I think yours are both Zeisses though, so they certainly count here!

That is great, I can't wait until they arrive Friday California time! My scanner is on its way as well, however, the custom Scanner_Model: Epson V500
Holder_Quantity: 1 Single Channel VARIABLE MF Holder for Epson Thickness: .5 mm, is backlogged a week, so i guess ill need to use an alternate method to post my film results, wish me luck! http://www.betterscanning.com/scanning/models/v500.html
