Terrific images posted here, so many great shots, very inspirational.
I thought I would get out of the garden and try a portrait with the 1.4/35mm.
Thanks for viewing.

I love the B&W's as of OneAnt & rji2goleez. As it seems the Zeiss lenses are extremely fine for B&W and I suspect, I will do a lot more B&W in the near future! Their powerful contrasty rendering does B&W very well. Lovely shots.

The 100MP is really excellent in picking up the fine details for B&W work. Here's a petal that I shot with the lens:

Francesco, love your bluish long exposure shot with 21 a few pages away. Great tone, and looks better than BW version, in my opinion.
Hugo, amazing shots with milky waters, as always.
Bob, love the drawing man, statues in the church, and also indoors with 21 from Barcelona and Paris churches earlier. Great atmosphere in those.

Here are a couple of street shots with 2/100, D300. I believe both of them were shot close to wide open. I also missed the focus in both cases, but I found them still quite usable.


This lady started to look sideways to see who was stalking her, while I was pretending to shoot something else ahead of me. Well, what should I do - it's pretty tough to get somebody in focus while both of you are walking, so I had to follow her for quite a while and make a dozen of shots or so


That man, on the contrary, didn't pay attention to me, which nevertheless didn't help me to get him in perfect focus


Thanks for watching.

No worries I am a Scottish-Canadian living in Germany, so I get to see common mistakes. In fact, I think that the vast majority of young Germans, and older West Germans, speak English very well, but typically say that they don't, because they make a few mistakes. By that standard, no one would speak foreign languages well

Funny, since I have heard of the 100MP being stiff, but mine is super smooth, but I don't recall hearing of the 50MP being stiff


my 100 MP is stiff and my 50 MP is loose. Funny how they differ

(catching up on the thread after a two weeks trip.. sorry)

50MP wide open. This lens does seem to carry a lot of depth of field for its focal length.

You are right, Carsten, I would never have guessed that this was a 50mm wide open. More like 28mm, by the looks of the DOF. And a great picture too!

I wasn't really expecting that. The lens is great for many things, and I am very impressed by its lack of CA where the 100 MP has lots, but I do want something which can give more 3D and isolation, so a 35/2 or 50/1.4 (or both!) is in the cards.

When you say lots of CA, you are only talking about longitudinal, not lateral?
For better subject isolation and more 3d, then the old C/Y 35/1.4 is better than 35/2(I have both) and better than the new 35/1.4 from what I have seen and read about undercorrected SA lenses which have slower focus transition.

Carsten, how much of your frustration is due to your desire for background isolation? Because, in my experience, Zeiss bokeh is much more "structured" than that of other lens brands. The classic example is the Sigma 50mm f:1.4. Whereas, with the Zeiss the background will still be recognizable, though totally OOF, with the Sigma is is not only OOF, but also de-structured (or blurred if you prefer).
In this respect, and while I value my 50 f:1.4 greatly, I am not sure that it would give you greater isloation than the 50MP. If that is the case, the obvious (and painful answer to your prayers is not the 35 f:2.0, but the 35 f:1.4, with its gorgeous, liquid bokeh. Ouch!

Actually, the new 35/1.4 with its undercorrected SA design retains shapes better further away from the focus point in the bokeh.Read CLN 35 which shows this and you can see it in Ajay's portraits with the hedge in the background.

Nie shots, Viincent! But, for the comparison to be quite fair, you should compare both lenses at f:2.0. Obviously the faster one has an advantage in getting thinner DOF wide open...
Sh*t, I need to really get into this wide open shooting. Too much good stuff that I am not enjoying...

Yes, Vincent, my apologies. You are trying to help, and I am just being difficult. But the subject is very interesting. [decides to go out despite a cold/flu with his 50mm f:1.4, and try his own hand at this. Why sould Carsten and Vincent have all the fun?]
