Thanks Johan. It is actually a tortoise. Not a turtle.

I have also had all the canon primes in that range except for the 24. I agree that the 35 is the fastest.

I stand corrected, reptiles are not my area of expertise

Great shots, Andreas. I really admire your ability to pull them seemingly out of nowhere. Congrats!

Thanks! I try to bring the camera with me as much as possible. Right now this lens is pretty much glued to my 5DII...

Yes - well, the 35L and Contax 35 f1.4 even have very similar looking length, girth, and size/curavature of front and rear elements, which is why I use the word suspicious.


No need to speculate... here are block diagrams:
Canon

Zeiss (PDF)

The Canon is an 11/9 design and the Zeiss is a 9/8 design. Both have a single aspherical surface. The length and girth similarity is due to the fact that the lens is very fast and it takes some space to fit enough elements to make such a lens sharp. Other than the fact that they're both reverse-telephoto lenses (like pretty much all SLR wide-angle lenses) they seem pretty different.

The newer 35/2 is a 9/7 design and again pretty different from both f/1.4 lenses.

Anyway, all three are amazing. I'm glad we have so many options at this focal length since it's one of my favorites. Between these three and the flektogon and EF 35/2 anyone could find the lens for their needs (AF, close focusing, bokeh, "look", weight, etc.)

Edit: I just noticed the 35/2 is only 50g lighter than the 35L. Ouch.

Nice one Andreas!
Was that hand held?

Well, I owned a 35L for quite a while, and loved it. Now I have a Zeiss ZE35, and the output seems quite different in many respects.

The lens discussed here is the older Zeiss 35/1.4 that was made in CY and Rollei mounts. The newer Zeiss Zx 35/2 lenses are a different design.

Here's what I have read about the Rollei 35/1.4's:
The older (non-rubber focus ring) design may not be as good optically.
The best performing Zeiss 35/1.4 optics may have been sent to Rollei (a German company).

Believe what you will, but I know my Rollei 35/1.4 is just fantastic with a Kindai adapter. I found it to have better color, contrat, and bokeh than the Canon 35L on my SLR/c:

Thanks guys.

No it is pretty much dusk and dawn all day... Grey and a lot of rain.

As for candles, we always eat breakfast with candles. It is cosy and and a nice way to start the day.

Here's an archive shot from the SLR/c and Rollei 35/1.4. I really need to redo this to my new PP workflow, but it still shows what the lens is capable of stopped down to F/5.6:







My 5DII could do no better. This was a 15sec ISO6 shot

I have the older version. I am very please with the results. If the newer on is even better then good for you. Mine is the best fast 35 I have used. Well I might have to go find a rubber ring version then... :-)

I have been visiting my grandma this weekend. Here are a few of the frames.
All at f/1.4 I think.
