I hope I will have some decent gear for shooting these more often in the future.

Depends of course size of mushroom, but I have liked most Contax Distagon T* 2.8/28 for mushroom photos. Not sure if I like new Zeiss lenses for mushrooms - Makro-Planar T* 2/50 isn't bad, but if going to that long focal length then I guess I would anyway prefer Contax S-Planar T* 2.8/60.

Not mushrooms but few "vertical landscapes" inspired by twoeye's shots on various threads.

Contax S-Planar T* 2.8/60 @ f/8, 1.3s, ISO 100, Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer


Contax S-Planar T* 2.8/60 @ f/2.8, 0.6s, ISO 100, Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer


Contax S-Planar T* 2.8/60 @ f/8, 4s, ISO 100, Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer

Finally taking out my EOS converted CZ 85/1.4. I love this lens and have to use it more often.

Nice series.

Have you done any Macro with that lens, meaning insects or similar and if so is it a good lens for such things?

Thanks. I don't shoot much macro stuff. Many years ago I did and as far as I remember long lens would be good for insects etc. Back then I shoot insects with Canon 180L and Canon 100mm (old and L-versions). With 60mm one would need enormous skill and patience. So if you try to do something like this, then I think 100mm and longer lenses are better choices.

I prefer to show surroundings of insects - even to extend that I experienced few years ago quite a lot with Contax Distagon T* 2./28mm+extension rings (example (I think I posted this one at 2009 or 2010 to Fred Miranda)).

Example (apologies for reposting, I'm pretty sure I posted this at 2011) with S-Planar T* 2.8/60 @ f/4:


Technically at 1:1 this is clearly best lens I have ever had (Canon non-L & L 100mm, 180L, ZE MP 2/100&2/50 with tubes and/or extender, Pentax 100mm f/4, and maybe some others did go to 1:1). Contrast is never as deep as with ZE/ZF-lenses, but as far as I see it's just matter of post processing slider positions to fix. However I personally rarely want to shoot such big magnification, the DOF is so narrow that it's very hard to present anything well.

Nice, Jay. I can't wait to digitally deploy my P100 MMG on the new Sony A7r. My current FF sensor (1Ds) has mirror-box interference.

yes, nice sirfish. Yes that is a great lens, works on the 5D2 (me got MMJ too). I believe I am going A7 rather than the r but we'll see.

Sirfishalot seems you have nice fall in Seattle.

Samuli I like that first vertical panorama.. pretty realistic, almost can touch and feel that cold..

rji2goleez Dont know where it is, but very nice landscape you have.. (and pretty sharp lens ).



Not sure how my butterfly catching last bits of sun fits into this, but here it is.. (my usual moment when long zoom would be handy .. or wider lens .. or both).

Carl Zeiss S-Planar T* 2.8/60 close to 1:1 (first one) and about 1:2 (last two) with Carl Zeiss T* Polarizer. I'm not huge fan of this big magnification because the DOF is way to shallow for what I would like to present:

f/11 (f/11 & 1:1 magnification - diffraction is pretty harsh, would need to tweak some sliders in RAW-processing to make it more contrasty)


f/8

Nicely captured movement.. even makes me a bit dizzy.

Samuli well, diffraction really isnt visible at this size. What is visible is very nice colors and equally nicely captured frost. Like third most..

Bit suprised tho, diffraction at f11? Thought thats issue only after f16.




Last autumn rose before first frost, its gone by now..

After a long torturous pondering, I picked up RX100. ( instead of Ricoh GR) As it is still 'zeiss' I assume it is ok, to post here Carsten? ( cross posted )

Yeah, of course, although I guess the RX100-thread people will be unhappy

You should try focus stacking. Not the most fun job to do in the freezing cold though.

A C/Y to EOS adapter arrived in the post just before lunch time today, so I took the bargainous C/Y 85mm f/2.8 that I bought last week out for a spin on my 5Dc.

More to follow as I post them on Flickr, but I am in love with this lens.

85/2.8 is from what I saw very very good lens. Quite compact too. Lovely pics. Colors from 5Dc are just yummy.
