Your shots are, as usual, really great, John. But why are the tracks not very straight? Mustache distortion? It also seems that you are putting yourself at risk (pic n2). Stay safe!

Thanks. To be honest, trains are the least of my worries. That's not a very safe part of Dallas to be walking around with a 1Ds3. Today I asked a friend to come along and watch my back while shooting. And sure enough, while we were snapping the pix, two police officers run by us chasing a group of guys. We decided that our next outing will be some abandoned town in the middle of nowhere!

Yeah, every time I think about going to some bad area to shoot some street pictures, I then remember some shooting I have seen on the local news like the 15 yr. boy yesterday who shot an Indian ice cream truck lady that he was trying to rob in Vallejo. Hard to blend in when shooting a 1ds3 in the hood, even if you put black tape on the Canon logo.

The Mrs was in a cooking mood this morning, not sure why... A couple quick pops w/ the 100/2 ZE -





Part of the B&W processing involves lessening the contrast - which tends to zap the 3D feel to a degree.

John, nice B&W work on last page, I really liked how smooth images looked.

Snowboarder, first image is very nice, nice separation even shoot from long distance.

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28 @ f/2, 1/40s, ISO 400 - excellent handhold indoor lens since it's quite OK already at wide open:

(for the non-Finnish speaking the faint text in door says "mens", since it's inverted from mirror it's again readable from left to right, this was kind of the trick of image but don't really open if you don't know Finnish)

Andrew, your pics indicate to me, despite the limitations of Web-based low resolution, that the difference between your 100MP and my 85 Planar is not unlike that between 50MP and 50 Planar f:1.4. Which means that I may have to buy the 100MP and keep my 85, unlike what I had hoped.

Well, if this is because of me, that dinner is on me then!

John,

Thanks for the scenes from Dallas. You made me feel a little "homesick".

Snowboarder,

Like Philber, my jaw also dropped at those stunning shots. What is the location? It is certainly more dramatic than the east coast of Florida. Waves breaking on rocks, now there's a novelty.

John....so, what is your impression of ZE100 vs. C/Y Planar100...

I'd love to have macro and general mid tele in one lens set-up.
I'm waiting and see if it is worth to sell N100/2.8 and C/Y Planar 100/2.0...and get ZE100.

It is very tempting so far....

Hi Paul - The weather has been dismal here, so I've not had much opportunity to use the 100/2 ZE yet. Snowboarder's beach images look great to me, and based upon some quick snaps around the house, I think the 100/2 ZE has the same character as the Contax's. The focus ring on my 100/2 ZE has a reasonably light action - and is a HUGE improvement over the 100/2 ZF I tried a year ago. Wide open I think the ZE is sharper than the Contax's. Stopped down, they are same. That's a broad opinion and I need 6-12 months with the lens across a wide range of conditions.

John....I appreciate your reply.....
I'll just sit back and relax for awhile....
I really like my both lenses....and N100/2.8 has 1:1 macro capability...
And it does show similar 3-D look....
