ZF.2 100 on D700

This one seems slightly back focused, oh well


One of the crazy thing in NYC. Once bicycles get vandalized, parts get stolen, people just leave them on the side walk letting them decay. I just don't get it. Thinking about the girl selling birds to free them from Lars's shot. So, anyway, this is yet another abused bike portrait.

Carsten - Last time Samli was around, he mentioned about 50MP's filed curvature at infinity. I don't think that is related to Carsten's focusing challenge. Could that be oil on view finder ?


Great photos on this page!

I don't think there is any oil there. The screen looks totally even in coloration and darkness.

In the end, I sat down and tweaked my diopter yet again, and this time, instead of setting it by where I thought the focusing rectangles were sharpest, I set it by manual focus accuracy. It ended up 3-4 clicks from where I had it before, but now I can nail almost every shot with both 50 MP and 100 MP. I have to test this in the real world, as I was working in my living room, but it does seem to be better now.

Interestingly, it isn't quite as easy to focus, indicating that my focus screen may be slightly off from its proper placement. I should probably send in my D3 at some point and have it checked over.

Thanks, it's Lotus flowers. A very common flower in Thailand. I would guess it's a kind of waterlily

oops, if 3-4 clicks on the D3 are what they are on the D700, your screen must be v e r y off.
I don't find the MP 50 any harder to focus than the 100. Haven't noticed more out of focus shots either. In fact, for me it feels like an easy lens to deal with. Can you compare with another Nikon (in a shop maybe?). You can also try to set focus on say 2m by using the scale on the lens and measure the distance (to the chip plane) and see whether that gives a correctly focused shot. Then set the diopter acordingly (might vary with distance though). I hope you get it fixed and it doesn't keep getting in the way of your relationship with the MP 50 any longer
The DOF of the 50 is really impressive. I found, I can use it at f4 for landscape shots sharp from front to back (not quite really, but almost, I actually like a little focus fall off at the very front and at far infinity.)
Concerning your seperation problem, I think the 50 is better at it at closer distances. Try with smaller objects closer by, to get the hang of it.

It is odd that the screen might be off, since when I first started using the 100 MP, I was nailing almost all my shots, but now it seems that there is a problem. Perhaps I should try to re-seat the screen, in case it just got a jolt, or got a bit loose?

In hindsight I see what you mean with my relationship with the 50 MP, so I should probably state things a little less ambiguously: the 50 MP is a really great lens, and I cannot imagine selling it again. It has astounding performance, with virtually no CA anywhere under any conditions, and it is sharp as can be, even wide open. The shape and size are pretty close to perfect, and now that I have used it a bit, the focusing ring has a very nice firm smoothness to it.

It has just two minor issues, which cause me to wonder if I should add (not replace with) a 50 Planar: the DoF is rather large at all apertures, and to get real background blur requires moving in quite close. Secondly, the far corners appear to have some field curvature, which doesn't bother with my style of photography, but is something to keep in mind. The large DoF could be an advantage for example for landscape photography, as you mentioned.

Akul, your "abused bike" shot is an eye-opener! The more I look at it, the more the composition grows on me. Good catch!
Lovely lilly-lotuses from Lars

Thank you, Philber and Lars. All these were shot back in Korea where I spent quite some time.

The prison shot was made inside Soedaemun prison - a historic site in Seoul; it was built during the Japanese era at the beginning of XX century and was used to keep the national resistance movement members. Lots of disturbing installations help visitors understand the atmosphere back in the days, but leave quite a feeling.

The snow-and-bridge one was shot in Suwon, a satellite city next to Seoul. These water gates are part of huge 5.7km-long fortress built at the end of XVIII century in a (failed) attempt of King Jeongjo to make Suwon a national capital.
