p.176 #1 · Zeiss Lens Photos and Discussion


I'm still not seeing much from / hearing much about the Distagon 2/25. It's a lens that's been on my radar for a while - it's a good FL on APS, especially with the possibility of a SpeedBooster making it also double as a "real 25mm". The specs look great, and it seems to have a really nice up-close rendering. But I've only seen maybe 10 pictures with one so far.

Anyone have any thoughts on it?

Well, I only noticed its sharp, has quite a bit of field curvate and distortion. More like "street" lens than for architecture or landscape. Looking at MTF, corners are most likely never sharp (probably due that field curvate). Yea and very heavy vignetting WO.

My personal is that it has quite nice drawing..

I havent tried it but I guess one reason for it not to become a blockbuster is that it falls in between the 21 and 28. Personally I couldnt justify getting it as I have the those two. But if the line-up lacks those and instead starts at 15/18 and next stop is 35 it would be a different matter :-)

These photos showed very high level of optical correction on Zeiss 135 APO. Impressive!

impressive indeed! the lack of bokeh fringing (actually it's still there, but you need to search for it at pixel-peep level) is what makes it truly stand out (thanks to the APO element). there is ZERO veiling wide-open. i can't see myself stopping down this lens often. ;-)

now all i need is the photography skill and i'm all set.

The portrait looks true to life. What camera you used for this shot?

D600 seems to hit "right" colors quite often.

i agree. however, in my experience the one that hit the right colors almost always is Olympus with Panasonic sensors, notably the EP-2.

Lovely photos Wilhelm, were you under an umbrella taking those?


No. In my experience they (CYs) can take light rain (within reason) as long as you cover when not shooting pointing the cam down or so. I use the original hoods to avoid front glass droplets.

Very nice. FM gets too few TS-shots! I think I need to simulate a few :-)
