Andi-
Which N lenses did you get? Did you get a copy of the N85?
I finally figured out how to do the micro-adjust on my N85 (it was front focusing significantly) so I actually haven't used it much on my Canon. It was a favorite lens on my N1, back in the day. But here are a couple very recent test shots that might show some of the lens' lovely character wide open. Where it really shires, of course, is with portraiture. I hope to put it through its paces on a suitable project soon.

Wow! If that is wide open, I shudder to think how sharp it is stopped down. And all that Zeiss goodness to boot...

No N85 yet, got N50+N24-85, next might be the N85 though in order to replace the Contax 1.2 I sold a couple of months ago.

Paul, congrats on the lenses, you will be happy! The N85 is the last lens that I would ever sell. The N50 is small, light and superb as well. I wish that the N line had grown to additional lenses, a 135/2 would have been really nice too.

I'm still debating myself between 3 lenses...

N85/1.4
ZE100/2.0 (not out yet)
C/Y Planar 100/2.0

I'm actually looking for a lens that will produce pictures as Planar 100/2.0 would, but prefer AF...

Wow! Well done, what a nice shot, grasmuc! Just one question: your EXIF shows 1/500th, but 3200 ISO. Why did you choose this?

thx philber:-)
this was shot in the lobby of Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok which was rather dark. so i choose iso 3200. eventually for this shot against the light from a window there was more light, so a lower iso would have been sufficient, ur right ... i was just to lazy to change

If anyone has a good deal on N85/1.4, please let me know.

I just received the 3 converted N lenses.
I forgot how heavy and well-built those lenses were.........

Paul,

I just received a converted 85/1.4. No joke, it feels the heaviest of all the N's with the exception of the 400. (The images it produces are heavy weight too....awesome!)

Finally I found a N85 wide open shot back in June, 2009. I was using a 400D at the time. Pic is slightly adjusted WB and exposure in LR, no further adjustment applied.
