Akul, brilliant stuff, as ever. Love your "under the bridge" picture most. Your stitched pano is also very interesting. I should try doing Versailles like that...
Great shots, Francesco! 5 & 6 are my faves...

Thanks fracs, philber

Philber, I took that under bridge shot thinking about you. It is sort of an urban cathedral. And, also there were some under highway shots of yours from about 150 pages ago

Very neat panoramic shot, Akul! I also really like your under the bridge shot.

I don't dislike my 50MP shots, but I am a bit puzzled and a bit underwhelmed so far. I have tweaked my diopter setting, as it seems that this lens may be especially sensitive to a correct setting here, so maybe my focus will be more consistent now. I will test and tweak the next couple of days and try to nail everything next weekend. Maybe I can get it right this time. I will also do some 50MP vs. 100MP comparison shots for rendering style, and see if I can find the commonality mentioned here.

Akul, Philber ... do you like more the following more classical B&W version of the 5th shot in my previous set?

Put me down as preferring the colour shot, Francesco. Not that the B&W is bad, but...

Thanks... looking forward to it. I just bought the 100MP ZF.2 a couple weeks ago, and the 50 MP is at the top of my wish list right now.. but I'm still on the fence.

I think maybe I am guilty of emphasizing my doubts more than my likes. I do really enjoy the lens. It is very sharp, has great boke close up, and has surprisingly few aberrations, like the minimal purple even in high-contrast areas, although I need to examine its field curvature wide open. I just find myself a bit surprised by the boke at medium distances, and its ability to isolate. I mentioned this earlier, but the harsh light and very distracting backgrounds may have been at fault. I will try to do something less extreme next weekend, provided I find the time for another outing.

I have a feeling I am beginning to scrape the bottom of the barrel trying to get a little more mileage out of my photos from last weekend:

Went skiing two Sundays ago up at Kirkwood.They have had a record season for snow > 700 inches. Had my 1ds3 and ZE 21 and a couple other zeiss lenses in my bag.
Nothing beats the thrill skiing fast down the mtn with your expensive camera gear.
The first shot is from the top (~10,000 ft). The flag is usually there all the time but it really described the conditions that day as the snow had hardened back up from the unusually warm 60 degree days earlier in the week and was now a sheer uncarvable sheet of snow/ice.
That is why nobody is on the lift in the shot. I think I took a year's worth of life off my knees coming down that top part.Because of the snow conditions I couldn't access some of the parts of the mtn to shoot the shots I wanted.Still it was a great day.

Thank you for your comments you guys.

Philber - Really lovely flower shots. Bitingly sharp they are. Amazing color and strong rendition of volume. Look at that relief at the bottom of planter !! I also appreciate that in the first shot, foreground is in bokeh, then the second shot it is the opposite. Oh I forgot. I'd love to see you do Versaille Pano. That would be a treat

Fracas - I agree with Philber. There is nothing wrong with the BW version, but that color shot is much more fun. It has the look of contemporary film, like Tom Tykwer ( The International, to be more specific ) I just love that look.

Carsten - Is it possible, that it is not the sharpness that you are missing, but something else ?? Here is the resaon why I ask. That shot of tree is quite sharp to my eyes. Love the reflection and growth at water level. Very lovely color, and it still have quite nice bokeh in the background. What not to like eh?? Anyhow, looking at your tree photo, reminded me of Samli's series of 50mm comparison shots ( probably 150 pages ago. I was not participating this thread yet, just reading. ) What struck me in that comparison was, how different the rendition of lenses were. ( My preference was actually 50 planar, surprise, suprise , but that is irrelevant ) I am not saying you should get 50 planar though

Bob - Great shots. Beautiful flowers. Tree shot (#3) is very pretty.

Wayne - Great shots of snow with 21. Juxtaposition of skull against beautiful snow mountain is unique and very strong.

Hugo - Wow, beautiful shots. Love the first one the most, but they are all beautiful.

Sorry, I had to separate these two. They don't go together too well.

Akul, thanks for your kind words! Your first shot is just fine, but, for some reason, the second one is ht eone that really caught my attention, and actually didn't yet let go of it...:-) Amazing!

Hugo, more delightful shots! Thanks!

Wayne, what an experience! My preference goes to N2, then N1. You handled the contrast and DR brilliantly!
