I have just gotten the CV Nokton 58 1.4 for the D300 and will be doing serious testing with it. Between it and the 40 2.0 asph these two little beauties make a very small kit. Will be interesting to see the comparisons with the Rokkor 58. Wish I had one for comparison. (I have a 5D also so I could do both side by side.

PM me if you'd like to discuss getting one and having me convert it. I could even coach anyone through the conversion if they'd prefer.

Nice pics, but geez, are you guys on 30" monitors or something? It's hard to evaluate pis when I have to scroll in all directions to see something that smaller crops could communicate just as effectively.


Sorry about that. I tried a smaller version and it didn't quite have the impact that a 50% file does. I wanted to make sure there was no doubt how much detail and contrast this lens has wide open. I am simply overwhelmed by it. I'll keep them smaller in the future.

We had some snow today, so I took the kids to a local hill to go sledding. This was shot with the M8 and 50mm Summicron.

AdamM: did you do anything to get those wonderful colors out of the camera? A polarizer, a bump in sat? I mean, those are just stunning, and if I can ever locate a 35-70/3.4 I don't think I'm going to hesitate. Wow.

godzakka,

Thanks! There's a lot of really stunning photography in this thread by many talented people, i'm honored you called those out. Cheers.

The colours, three tricks:

1. That crazy-awesome CZ 35-70. It's sooooooo good. Get one, you'll love it dearly.
2. Get up bloody early. Both of these shots are just at daybreak.
3. In Adobe Lightroom (i recommend highly as a photo manager, RAW processor, image tuner, archive holder) there's a function called 'vibrance' I've added my 5-7%. That is very very little, but it does give a hint more pop. Another slider called 'Clarity' is useful too, to reduce haze (amazingly, somehow)

No amount of post processing makes up for early morning or twilight light, gawd i've tried

/A
