I was glad to discover that the gnomes that live in Hartley Park survived our harsh winter...

Visited Arizona's Mogollon Rim yesterday to shoot from a couple spots discovered a couple weeks ago. The weather was a little too nice--not enough cloud cover to disrupt the bright sun, but I was there, and shoot I did.

Sony a99, RAW, Sony/Zeiss 50/1.4 (ZA). First is a 5-frame pano stitched in PS. F11, 1/15, ISO100, vertical frames, camera rotated on a Kirk BH.


There's a tiny spec of light in the far-lower-right corner; here 'tis at 100%.


Weird Stump. Same lens, F1.6, 1/800, ISO100.


I'm really pleased with the resolution of this system, especially with the two Zeisses I have, the other being the 16-35/2.8. The Sony 70-300/4.5-5.6/G is also excellent. Have a couple 85/1.4s coming, the original (1987) Minolta and the current Zeiss; we'll see how they do.

Has anyone been fortunate enough to own both the 50mm f2 MP and the 55mm f1.4 Otus? I am just curious as to how they compare and, when you might choose to shoot with the MP and when you would choose the Otus. Obviously, both are great lenses and the Otus, in particular, is outstanding.

Thanks.

Finally taken my 100-300 out after rear element replacement.
Growing rather fond of it, not least because I suddenly am able to focus rather well even stopped down to f8...

From a recent trip to Kyushu.

very nice, did you have eye surgery?

a couple b&w family shots with the g28 on an a7 that i think show off the zeiss look quite a bit first one is alternate frame and processing from one i posted in the a7 thread, the second is just a straight up crosspost.

I'm on my phone and can't see the larger images at the moment... But how is the field curvature of the G 28mm on the A7? It's pretty noticeable on my 5R, I assumed it'd make the lens unusable on the A7.

Nah...I am just amazing like that.. as well as modest as most humble..lol..
Seriously though, I don't find it problematic to stop down f8 and focus in good conditions.

Lens had an eye surgery - extremely grateful to Zeiss for kindly selling me a rear element for replacement..

Ed: Great photos btw!!

most people think it makes it unusable, i think its still pretty useful for certain types of shots, particularly closer up. much of the character comes through despite the crazy field curvature.

stopped down landscape stuff works better if you focus to ~3-5m instead of infinity.

here's some full sized samples i posted a while back: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1260613/1#12366716

Sometimes it work in my favor, sometimes it drives me nuts. Wide open, the curve is such that you can do some fun things in the corner thirds. The edges and corners can get quite sharp wide open when you focus for them, at least on crop - breaks my heart a bit.

Your samples look pretty good - not as different from my 5R as I'd been led to believe. Are these corrected for color shift?

nope, no corrections applied. color shift isn't too bad on the a7 (but is on the a7r).

I must be conflating A7/A7R performance - I had the G 28mm categorized as an APS-C only lens, based on the experiences I read. Good news to me, as I'd like to upgrade to an A7 or future FF body when I can afford it. I haven't noticed color shift on my 5R other than on white wall/tissue tests, though our white winters might get me to change my mind.

I was on my way to the Köpenick gefängnis (Koepenick Jail) when I met a policeman in the S-Bahn (commuter train), and after making a comment about the heat and his uniform to break the ice (it was about 37 degrees Celcius, which is about 2 million degrees Fahrenheit), I told him that I was off to jail... and then that it was Koepenick Jail, for a photo tour. In hindsight, that probably wasn't a great joke. He was a little stiff somewhere in all of that, but was eloquent enough in the end, full bonus points for him.

I was loosely considering making another comment on the way back, in case I should see another policeman, that I had just come out of jail, but the opportunity didn't arise...

I decided that given the contrasty light and the flawed behaviour of the A7, that I would bring my Nikon on this trip, which was probably a good decision all told, in spite of the weight. D800, ZF.2 21/2.8 @ f/2.8:

Great shot, Carsten - very moody!
Btw, remember not to visit Japan between July and September...

Expecting around 40 degrees centigrade in August. My "studio" at Fuji will be a no-go area - one of the hottest places in Japan actually...

So I'm at a cross roads... I am considering the FE 55 or the ZM 50 1.5. I'm currently using the Voigt 40 on my A7 and am loving the character of the lens and w/ a helicoid it's a piece of cake to take a great shot so focusing isn't a concern.

The question comes down to do I want optical perfection (the FE 55) or do I want the character of the 50 1.5..... the more and more I shoot the Voigt 40 the more and more I see myself gravitating to the ZM 50 1.5.

Opinions? Sorry I have no shots to contribute currently :P

Carsten, maybe it is easier to get away with joke like that to a police officer when it is 37 degrees now that Germany won the World Cup, i.e. don't try that joke in Brazil

Great photo from the cell, here is one that is kind of the opposite. ZE 50 Macro-Planar on the Sony A7r.

zephoto, I don't have any personal experience with either lens but I've seen some great photos with the ZM 50/1.5 in the Sony A7 image thread and given that I also have a Leica M9 that I could use it on I would prefer it of the two.
