For my personal taste, the OOF leaves in the foreground are a bit of a distraction in a otherwise very nice image

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.


Very interesting observation on the dof. That may be the ambivalent impression I tend to get from 50 MP shot sometimes. 50P must be quite a bit shallower in dof.


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.


I suspected the grass behind was as sharp or sharper. Hard to tell from the size of image. Intrestingly though, now we are talking about oof in minute level ;} Anyhow, I like the shot because it gives me the sense of the depth very well. Looking forward to see what you are going to experiment with this lens.

Lars - Quite interesting graffiti. I notice the Asian touch with slightly Anime like style. Very different from US style. Second and third shots are beautiful. Third shot especially is my favorite.

OneAnt - I love that first shot. OOF narrative, dreamy drama between two men. Very cinematic. I sort of wish I didn't see the woman with shopping bag on the left, she seems to be a little more in focus and is destructing. I myself, hate cropping, and do it only when needed with sense of defeat. I imagine art of shooting street is zen like, that what you got is what you get ? Anyway, ignore me I know nothing about street shooting. Love the shot, great work. Great to see shots with 28. Yeay

Johnahill - I like the second shot very much. Very lovely color. 4 leaf clover ...... Philber where did yo see 4 I only see one.

prosep - Very nice color. I like the composition very much. Quite a shallow dof eh?

Brilliant portrait, Lars! One of the best I have seen here. I wonder if a slightly more discreet frame might not give it even more "soul"...

I had an odd thing happen today. I was making some test shots with the 50MP, and found that I couldn't focus where I wanted. I tried the center of the view, no problem. Tried again a bit lower and to the left, and again missed, by quite a bit. I tried both with and without the focus point assistance, but I just couldn't focus in that part of the photo. Very weird, and I can't explain it. I tried in other parts of the image, no problem. Just for some reason, for this one composition I couldn't get the focus right.

Has anyone experienced anything like that? What could it be, field curvature? It wasn't that far out in the field, just perhaps at the 1/3, 1/3 mark, from the bottom left. I was shooting wide open, Nikon D3.

@Hugo, which ND and/or CPL filters are using on your ZE 21 for your last rocky coastline shots?
@Carsten, yes I discovered last year while shooting the extra DOF the 50MP has over the 50 P and I see the same between my C/Y 35/1.4 and ZF 35/2. What I wonder is if this is true between the C/Y 100/2 Planar and the ZE 100/2. I only have the C/Y 100/2 and might want to get the 100MP if it has larger DOF stopped down for landscape. I remember Toothwalker did a comparison of the two awhile ago and found the 100MP to be slightly sharper at f2 only.But didn't know if he tested for different DOF while stopped down.
@Lars, nice portrait of the girl but I like the welder portrait even more with the blue colored smoke.
@OneAnt, I really like how everyone in you street shots are oblivious to your D700 while you are quite close to them with the ZF28. How are you so stealth?

Congrats on your new lens, Vincent! Your shot really shows its classic (and classy!) rendering.
Nice one, prosep!

Thank you philber. I'm a bit lazy when posting here and just use one of my "standard frames"

Something a little different for here. I was invited to a friend's apartment last night, with a view of the beach. The Red Bull X Fighters were in town, so here's a view of the arena - 2/35 ZF2 on a crop sensor.
