From a day out with my new 50MP. I was not completely happy with the results in general, to be honest. They were sharp, but for some reason, I missed focus much more than I do with the ZF21 or 100MP, I don't really know why. Maybe I was relying on the focus dot too much? I also didn't find the rendering all that exciting in many shots, but it could have been the fault of the lighting. It was very sunny and very harsh.

I will probably end up posting another couple, but here is a first one:

Francesco, very good but not better than the color version or maybe i dreamed different for the bw version, maybe water need more light? As i said it's still very nice whatever i comment.


rji2goleez, beautiful shots, any filters?

rsolti nice images!

Carsten, i see no problem with this photo especially under those circumstances (harsh light)

Lars, beautiful masks, maybe a little more sharpening needed, what do you think?

Thanks Uzay, but actually, I was keeping the harsh light shots for later. This one was taken in the shadow. There is harsh light on the other side of the street

Right. The colours were often flat, the contrast too high, especially for Zeiss lenses which are already contrasty, and so on. But I think I should be able to find one good shot in the 80 I have kept so far

Maybe they could use a bit more. I always prefer a bit less than too much if I am not sure how much

Paulesque ode:







Uzay, here is a good example of what I was/am struggling with. I was expecting the boke in this shot to help me separate out the little tree from the background, but it is so unruly that it rather does the opposite. I am not sure if it is the light on the birches which kills it, or just that this isn't the right use for the 50MP.

I also find that although the result is sharp, it isn't 100% sharp, and for some reason, sharpening isn't reacting the way I am used to with the 100MP. I can't find the balance between not-sharp-enough and too-sharp. I keep thinking that I have got it, but on second look, I have over-sharpened. This might have something to do with the fact that I was having trouble focusing it right, and might have missed slightly. With the 100MP, I nail the focus most of the time. It is just so easy to focus.

I have read quite often that the 50MP is a mini-100MP, but for me, so far, nothing could be further from the truth. I am going to have to play a lot with this lens to understand what is going on, whereas I loved the 100MP from the first shot.

I'm sorry to hear that carsten. Maybe the 50MP will grow on you? Give it some time.
I love mine (but I don't have the 100MP).

I like the rendering of that last photo.

Also 2 shots with the 50MP:

dj - great shots of tree on water
hmzimelka - very pretty landscape shot with 35
Ajay - great series with 35 f/1.4
Bob- beautiful sunset shots
fracas - I like both color and b/w. Great shot
rsolti- great shot with ZM18. Love the second one
Lars - those shots are amazing. Great lighting and detail
carsten - Your 50MP shots look great. I still see quite a definition and separation. Your second series shows quite a strong separation. Second one is my fav.
jochen - nice shots
kururu-wonderful color
plasticmotif- great shot of waterfall.

fracas - great city night shots. Is this Milano ? My favorite are #1, 5, 6 Interesting color on #5. Love the #6 though. That is my most fav.
HMZimelka - Beautiful shot. Very calm and serene.

Carsten's pano experiment with 100mp got me interested. Here is my quick try with 100MP, pretending to be wide angle. They were handheld, and stitched using PS photo merge function. A bit overexosed, and color got washed out, so converted to b/w. Nothing spectacular, but I enjoy the shallow dof effect for seemingly a wide angle shot.

Thanks Akul. Yes, it is Milano.
I like your pano with 100mm... I think I will try the stitching experiment too.
