thanks! the lens has amazing colors and micro contrast, it is pretty susceptible to flare though and bokeh can be pretty funky. a few more with it:

Ronny, great work from Iceland, your trip definitely was worth it even weather was challenging. Technical question: is the 16-35 really so soft (or weak microcontrast) compared to Loxia 21 (and Loxia 50)? Or is it because 16-35 photos were shoot with A7mkII and Loxia 21/50 photos with A7r mkII, and your downscaling process from larger megapixel camera results sharper images?

If you compare sharpness (on forum size images) for example this Loxia 50 image and this Loxia 21 image then all 16-35 images have much weaker micro-contrast and sharpness (pick any, non of them are even close to as

I had essentially the opposite experience. I do not really care for zoom lenses, because I generally prefer faster apertures. I crave micro-contrast and sharpness. However, I had the Loxia 21 and Zony 16-35/4 at the same time and saw no real difference with the Loxia. The Loxia was not worse. It just was not the leagues better that it should have been and really was not the ZE 21 but smaller. It was different. In spite of all of my biases, I actually preferred the zoom and have been very happy with the micro-contrast and edge sharpness at infinity.

I would like to have the Loxia 21 but for my experience I have to say the Zony 16-35 seems to have a built-in anti haze filter

That is a great way of putting it. I find that I actually have to sometimes have a negative Clarity setting with that lens. I have only ever done that previously when I stopped down the Contax 100/2 beyond f/5.6 when shooting portraits or when using the ZE 2/135 for portraits beyond WO. Those statements put the "lowly" zoom into a rarefied class.

It is not a perfect lens, but it is a really surprisingly good one...probably excellent, especially if you take into account that it is a zoom. Being able to shoot handheld on an IBIS body at 1/5 sec and get sharp images is just insane.

Glad that worked out good for both of us, Jim! (Grenache sold me his outstanding Loxia 21. )

Your shots seem solid with that 16-35.

12-24 seems quite good as well. Sony is getting it together when it comes to lenses. That was the big fear years ago when they swallowed up Minolta.

A found portrait out of the Loxia 85/2.4.
And a note that Zeiss's latest Lenspire 9/2017 has a short take of their views on bokeh, from the designer's point of view, incl:

"But ultimately blurriness is a somewhat hazy term that primarily comes down to a subjective judgement. That’s
why no set of scientific measurements can ever be a proper substitute for the visual impression of a photograph taken under realistic conditions. We appreciate that fact – and that is why we equip our photographers and brand ambassadors with lenses right from the start of the prototype phase so that we can gather as many images and appraisals as possible."

Hi Jonathan.

I'm intrigued by how you got a terrific shot like this. You obviously don't know the guy, but you are very close to him, aiming a 55mm lens at him. But his expression and reactions seem to be as though you are not there. It does remind me of some of Gary Winogrand's shots. Here is one of Winogrand's student's description of how he shot on the street:

"We quickly learned Winogrand’s technique–he walked slowly or stood in the middle of pedestrian traffic as people went by. He shot prolifically. I watched him walk a short block and shoot an
...Show more

Peter,

I apologize for my tardy reply to your post. Thank you so much for the kind words (and for the extremely flattering reference to Gary Winogrand). In a certain sense, I am "not there". I photograph with the camera at waist level at least 95% of the time, no matter what the subject, human or otherwise. (I would never buy a camera that did not have a tilt screen.) But nowadays the vast majority of people take photographs with a mobile phone held out at arm's length and more serious photographers (a minority) compose through a viewfinder. So I suspect that I become essentially invisible because my potential subjects do not believe it is possible for anyone to take a photograph whilst looking at them rather than at or through the camera.

Interestingly though, about ten minutes after I'd taken the picture you referred to, another guy I'd photographed came back and asked me what I was photographing. I told him I was photographing people as they passed by and showed him the picture I'd taken of him. (I just checked that frame and he's looking directly at the camera.) What are you going to do with the photographs, he asked. I'm hoping eventually to publish a book, I replied. He was totally happy with that response and went on his way.

I wasn't aware that Gary Winogrand "walked slowly or stood in the middle of pedestrian traffic as people went by" but, as it happens, that's exactly what I do. Sometimes I stand or sit where there is a constant flow of pedestrians and allow the pictures to come to me; at other times, I walk through the social landscape and attempt to find pictures. On most days, I alternate between those strategies. For the picture of the man striding past, I was sitting on a bollard. For the one I posted a couple of days ago of the couple sitting on the bench in the park, I was walking slowly towards them.

Winogrand worked with a Leica and (frequently) a 28mm lens. I've done some experimenting with a 28mm but find that one needs to get much closer than I'm currently comfortable with. When I'm stationary, I find a 55mm lens frequently works well but when I'm on the move I prefer a 45mm so I carry two bodies.

The G 28, 45 and 90 are spectacular. Been processing shots recently and they're surprising me even though I've used them for a bit... Mine is with the 1500mm PCX and stock filter stack. probably over-processed these...
