Bob, that second shot is stunning! You should print it and hang it.

Bob - Stunning window shots from different churches, cathedrals. Great use of 21. Love the way how you find ways to use 21 for almost everything. One particularly caught my eyes was the empty champagne bottle left in some sort of courtyard. Great rendition of bottle, and quite lovely bokeh

Lars - Great capture of a welder with light and smoke. Beautiful detail of surroundings. I love the rendition of paint pealing wall in the back.

Carsten - Very interesting analysis of 50MP related to your shot results. What caught my attention most was the DOF part. That is understandable due to shorter focal length compared to 100MP. One particular characteristics that makes 100MP quite lovely and challenging is its extremely shallow DOF. Lovely shot of trees. To my eyes, focus is on the top part of downed tree trunk in the middle where it bends down. If it was back focused, may be the piece was bending away ? Lovely color, very natural and pleasing to my eyes.

Hugo - Great coast shot with 21. Texture on the rock is very nice. Beautiful work

Great shot Lars.
Hugo, great as usual.
That last shot is stunning Bob.

Carsten, interesting to read your experiences with the 50MP.
I've had a zacuto z-finder. Didn't really like it for photo. I prefer the viewfinder. It does work but you really see the individual pixels of the display. A plus is that it allows you to use slower shutterspeeds, because it stabilises the camera. Mounting/remounting is really easy and fast.
I think it's a matter of personal preference.

Bob: That second shot with the little idol on the opposite wall with hands outstretched to receive the light streaming in is simply beautiful!

With respect to depth of field, I think that the 50MP has a large depth of field even for a 50/2, not just compared to the 100MP. For example, it is also well known that the 21 Distagon has an abnormally large depth of field for its specs, and I think the 50MP might also have some of this.

The place you describe is where I focused, and it is sharp there. However, the grass just behind it is even sharper, and this was my diopter problem. When I sharpen, the background gets sharp before my focused area, which causes problems. This photo was one of the best results, others were much more problematic, and I had to give up on them.

One?? I see 4...

That said, your lens looks extremely nice, especially when you think MFD is supposed to be its weakest spot...

These wides that have short mfd make interesting lenses.
I also picked up a Nikon 28/2.8 ais and that was fun but not as good at distance stuff.

I'm very keep to get out and do some city/landscape stuff with the zf25.
