Very nice shots, James! Maybe you should get another Zeiss lens?

Chris, I am pretty sure that your lens has a problem, but I think it is always good to think in terms of "proof". I would certainly contact Zeiss, send them the photos, and ask about it. I would not personally be happy with a lens like that.

Thanks for the suggestion Carsten, but that isn't in the cards for me - unless I win the lottery. Thanks to you and Ronny for the kind comments. I'll just image some more of the tens of thousands of film shots I already have, and shooting my current gear.

There are inexpensive ways to shoot Zeiss lenses. The Contax 50/1.7 can be found for $100 or so, for example, and the wonderful ZF 50/1.4 for perhaps $300-400. It depends a bit on what system you use, but getting a Zeiss lens again doesn't have to cost a lot.

You can also get the Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50/1.8 again for $50 or so.

Germany + Japan + China + Thailand + Korea + America coming together for some quality stuff.

Rony, I love the d700's signature color, it is such a great camera which is very hard to find a follower. Hand hold? Or tripod?

Thanks I shot 99.9% handhold .. shooting rarely or never Slow Shutter Speed.. ​​have no filter either .. but it would been fun to try when looking all the great photos with Slow Shutter Speed ​​
It is difficult to find a replacement for D700 .. try to tell myself that I do not need the D800 or D800E

Only way to maintain or improve D700 colors is to switch camps. Unfortunately along with D2x, D700 had one of best Nikon colors. That and D300 (especially profiled) was pretty good.

Today Nikon stuff is colorwise similar "meh" like Canon. But not that bad as Canon, thats sure..

Taken from point of view of "nice and semi-accurate colors". D600 with bit of profiling has nice colors tho (just not really accurate). D700 with profile could have both, accurate and nice colors.. (most of the time even without profile).

D800/E require some work to make the file looks great. Just the way it is for 14stop DR camera. And color can be great from that camera as long as you profile it or tweak until to your like. Ultimately, it is still a Sony sensor.

I bought my 6D with the hope that at least I can work on it just like D800E I had. But I am very wrong on this. 'Milky' is the word I want use I learned from here. and the signature can be traced to 6D, 5DIII, and 1DX. but surprisingly not 5DII and 5D and 1ds.

Since this seems recently popular topic in Alt forum, I just revisit my D800E file I took a year ago. I can definitely make it work for me. and it has huge latitude to do process in color and shadow and highlight and they all related to each other.

My next DSLR will be D800. depend on NEX FF.

Like the colors in that image, Jabberwockt

Ronny, seems Zeiss glass in your hands makes for stunning flower photos.

This is from the archives...1994 at a local place known as Honey Creek. This was shot with a mint Ikoflex 6x6cm TLR sporting a Zeiss-Opton 75mm f3.5 Tessar lens - in a light rain.

I only stopped in out of curiosity, now I'm running away as fast as I can, and I'm going to hide my credit cards!

Its possible to PP 6D files to something "usable", just I never found it exactly great. I guess with right color profile it could be decent. Certainly not one in LR/ACR..
