Two from today with the Zeiss ZE 28 f/2 Distagon and the Zeiss ZE 100 f/2 Macro-Planar. I used my heavier Gitzo 3-series tripod today instead of my lighter Manfrotto 190 tripod and it looks that removed some of the issues with cmaera shake I had earlier when using heavy Zeiss ZE lenses.
Joakim, 2/28 looks wonderful. I have this far tried to avoid using it with A7, since it seems it's the only wide angle, which will work for me:
- 24/25 too wide
- 35 not wide enough
- all f/2.8 are too slow
-other f/2 options don't seem to offer anything more
meaning that I'm "married" to it for a looooong time, so no rush to use it. Waiting for Otus 1.4/28
Because Voigtländer APO-Lanthar 90mm F3.5 SL is quite small I wanted to try it with A7 today. Colors of Voigtländer were slightly problematic with 5DmkII, but as I expected they are better with A7, actually much better than I expected. Might be also that this was first time I have ever shoot this lens with polarizer (52mm step down to 49mm, step up 49mm to 58mm, Carl Zeiss T* 58mm polarizer). I shoot few different apertures for each composition, and to my surprise I preferred this time the ones shoot with smaller aperture for the larger DOF. Not very usual for me, specially since this lens is ok even wide open at focus plane, and boke quality slightly improves when closing down (it's not horrible wide open).
