200 pages!

Wow, who would have thought it would come this far. Usually only the lens/camera-of-the-day threads (and the Leica and ZF/ZE/ZM threads) make it that far.

I guess that the spread Zeiss has in focal lengths and mounts old and new and the consistency in quality plays a major part in this.

Then again I guess that we're a bunch of persistent old geezers here at the alt forum also plays a role

Musicman, Sonnar 85 & architecture seems to be good combination.

I have not had priviledge to use 2.8/180 or 4/300. I did like rendering of 2.8/135, but it has too much LoCa. I shoot a lot with 3.5/200, and liked it a lot. Eventually I ended up shooting with Vario-Sonnar T* 4/80-200, which I think is better than mentioned 135mm or 200mm. This zoom had extreme nice rendering (from rendering style point of view AND also technical aspects are in pretty good shape) from 80mm to 120mm - even tele-end wasn't the forte of 80-200 I think it was better than 200mm on many aspects.

Let me know if you need some samples and I can try to check if I have some online or develop few photos for you.

Zeiss has so wide range of legacy lenses still in use that I'm not surprised. Medium format, C/Y, G-series, ZA-mount, Sony compact cameras and even cellular phones.

Thou I'm not sure cellular phones should have "Carl Zeiss" printed on them. Last Sunday I forgot CF-cards from both cameras to card readers at home So the outdoor time was spent mostly scouting the forest for good places for 2014. While doing that took about 20 photos with "Carl Zeiss" lens equipped smart phone. Photos look awful in phone screen and even worse in computer. Not even slight hint of Zeiss rendering. I can't understand why Zeiss gives their name to all kind of crap these days.





One of the few shots I ever took (won't do it in future...) wide open with ZA 24-70. Unlike photos I usually post this has been sharpened (because f/2.8 even at best range 35-40mm wide open isn't much to talk about...).

Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 2.8/24-70 @ 40mm & f/2.8, 1/200, ISO 100

What do you want to shoot, birds?

Otherwise for a kind of general purpose I'd go for the 135 in your range, or better yet the 100/2 and use the legs.

For flexibility I (oddly) agree with Carsten, the 100-300. It will rest the legs :-)

There's also a Contax tele-converter that I dont know much about. Canon does a remarkable -1EV 1.4x and without knowing I would hope that the Zeiss is on par.

Very nice Samuli, subtle yet clear separation in the träsksjö.

EDIT
(for me you should post slightly larger, 1280 or so)

I think so though I somewhat unwillingly always regarded you as a valuable asset here ;-)

See, there is your first mistake

Although I am a loud-mouth, I do try to contribute. I need to get out there and start shooting again. This year has been very stressful and full of big decisions. Hopefully next year will be more relaxed again.

Actually, there are three tele-converters in the Contax line. CZ calls them Mutars: standard 2x, APO 2x, and APO 1.4x. I have both APOs and, in particular the 1.4x, have no reluctance using them image-wise. Due to mechanical clearances, the APOs operate with a subset of the CZ C/Y lens lineup. The standard 2x is compatible with all lenses, including the Distagons.

I never heard about that. I've seen the Mutar I, II and III, but none of them are labeled APO (nothing about that in the data sheets). Aren't you confusing them with the Leica APO Extenders?

30 secs Googling for Yen Sushi Noodle suggests it's Centre Place off Little Collins Street in Melbourne, Australia.

dreamplayer, nice street view - HDR I would assume?

Thanks. I have considered starting to post 1280 wide BUT half of my photos are vertical and people here have so small monitors that my current size (972px by 972px) may cause people need to scroll (if they have 10 extra bars on browser). Unfortunately all people don't have 2560x1600 displays.

Test for 1280px wide (via Zeissimages, I don't want to store two sizes on my own website)
Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 2.8/24-70 @ 50mm&f/2.8, ISO 200


EDIT: Seems Zeissimages is doing something REALLY weird; the photo I uploaded was 227kb and this one is over 450kb...

Optimised for the web, obviously. Maybe Jorge has invested in backbone operators?
