I should clarify that in no way am I suggesting that people kill this thread. I will personally post my photos in the other thread, since I own three ZF/ZF.2 lenses and one C/Y, and I don't want to split my photos according to lens. These lenses live in the same bag, why make the photos live in separate threads? However, I fully understand that this thread has a life of its own, and there is some awesome stuff here. I will continue to read it and contribute words here.
So, since I'm shooting Zeiss and Leica, should I start a "Luka's Zeiss and Leica" thread? Although I understand your desire to keep your image sets in coherent units I'm not sure how you see this working out. If you against all probability manage to start a successful competing Zeiss thread of your own, it will only split things off to yet another thread. So we'll have the ZE/ZF.., the C/Y, the Zeiss 35/1.4 and Carsten's Zeiss threads. I don't really see how that would be an improvement.
There is by the way already an all-inclusive thread - namely the largest on on this forum - the Alternative Image thread:
well, now that we are talking of threads. I was thinking of the opposite extreme [more like PoTN: dedicated thread per lens], but that would take some painful re-work. If we did do it, then it would help keep things somewhat better organized and structured. Someone doing research on these lenses would find it easy perhaps.
But we are already 300 pages deep. What are the general thoughts on this? Should we stick with this thread as is and not disturb the flow or should we at some point consider one picture thread [sticky for this forum?] per modern Zeiss...Show more →
It works really poorly over at POTN as the discussion and images get split across too many threads to keep any kind of 'community' thing going on. I think the main benefit of this thread is that it reached a critical mass that has kept it going. There are quite a few people only shooting Zeiss ZE/ZF lenses so we get coherent image sets and not people just posting the odd image.
So I think splitting this thread into ten or so parts (twenty if you include ZM lenses) would simply kill the Zeiss community here.
Generally, I'm leaning to the 'leave as is' solution, but if there had to be a change, I'd rather see this thread to allow in shots with C/Y lenses rather than creating more threads.
