Why not just use the big photo thread instead?

Unless I'm missing something, the Loxia lenses are e-mount only, so you'll find images from them all in one place, more or less...

I am interested in the Loxia lenses. Rather than wade through the FE lens thread searching for a Loxia image, I do prefer the idea of a dedicated thread.

I'll get things started. Below is a 3 image panorama from Machu Picchu. I rented and loved the loxia while on my trip to Peru. I have the 35mm fe 2.8 now as I could not stomach the cost difference between the two.

Considering its enormous size, and highly diverse lens options in the FE thread, finding the Loxia images would be daunting. However, two lenses isn't much of a line up. It would be helpful if there were several image threads, for a-mount (exists), NEX/aps-c e mouunt (exists), FE bodies (exists), and a Zeiss Batis/Loxia/Touit thread (doesn't exist). A Zeiss native e-mount image thread would be nice. Moreover, it would open the options for aps-c shooter with loxia lenses to have a place.

Thank you for getting this started.

I just received my 50/2 Loxia yesterday and plan to contribute soon.

Thanks

Here's another from Machu Picchu at sundown. It was one of my last images before I left the park. The sun broke through the clouds and lit up the ruins just perfectly.

What about those of us who enjoy seeing lots of different options for the E-mount cameras ?

Should we have to go and view a bunch of different threads just to appreciate all the different images users of A series cameras are sharing ?

I like being able to see Gregg's Loxia 50/2 images, sometimes in the same post as his new 35/1.4 FE.

I like being able to see VC 35/1.2 images on the page as 35/2 Loxia as 35/2.8 FE images. Its a great way to scroll through a page and compare contrast lots of different rendering styles.

Having to otherwise open 3 different browser windows, and/or make all the contributors to the long running main image thread cross post in a bunch of different forums seems silly.

Needs of the majority outweigh the needs of the few.

I'm one of the few that would find a dedicated Loxia thread helpful.
For the record..

Making this a Zeiss Batis/Loxia/Touit thread would probably be the best idea.

I don't think that really makes sense. The Loxia lenses are quite different in design, goals for the design, and function from the Batis and Touit lenses. I like the idea of a Loxia thread, and if I were to add more lenses it would be ZM, Milvus/ZE/ZF, and Otus.

The Loxia's doesn't seem to be very popular here on FM which is surprising.

If you want to find the Loxia images in the Sony FE images thread only, make a google search like this:

I took my Loxia 50 to Old Car City a couple weeks ago and thought it performed wonderfully. On the A7II (and I'm sure the IIR) it's so simple to manual focus. I also took it with me on the Kelby Photo Walk last weekend and captured a couple of my favorite shots of the day with it. Lots more from OCC (I love that place), but I don't want to overwhelm the thread with them.

Can someone comment on what they like about the Loxia in relation to either the FE 35 2.8 or FE 55 1.8? I am debating which way to go, have read lots of reviews, but am still undecided. These images help. The 3d is incredible.

John,

I had both the 55/1.8 and the 35/2.8, and they are both very good (35) to excellent (55) lenses. I'm not using this camera in situations where I really need auto-focus (have my Canon for that), so it has become a question for me of which lens is more "fun". Totally subjective I know.

I found the 55/1.8 to be incredibly sharp, and it produced great images, but the best way I can describe it is "clinically sharp". To me, the Loxia just has more character, and I can't tell you exactly why. I simply like the rendering.

The 35/2.8 is also a very nice lens for the price, and there's nothing to complain about. I have been tinkering with some old Zeiss Contax stuff and have a really great copy of that 35mm. Again, it just seems to have character, and it produces crazy sharp images. Add to that that I truly enjoy manual focus (from my old school K1000 days) and the A7 series makes focusing so easy.
