I am surprised so many people like this image from DPR? SH!





people at DPR say WOW at this picture some are skeptical and one guy says it's 3d.

can someone here pls replicate the same with the same size kid with either zeiss 85mm or 100 Makro.

for me it looks really fake.


Here's a sample shot with 85mm L at f1.2 for me this is real. It doesn't look 3d but it is good, I like this better than the Kid pic.

Unless the guy is lying, its not a PS job... (but I agree, looks too good to be true)

He is lying, the kid has too big DOF. Dodging and burning explains why kid's shoes don't have vignetting as much as background. The amount of background blur doesn't look weird to me (before moving to Zeiss I shot a lot with 85/1.2mkII), but it won't make the image great - typical 85/1.2L image; cardboard people on blurry background - people don't have clear shape and volume, just damn flat cardboard figures - definitely not even slightest hint of 3D in these.




We need more pictures here....

Zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar at f/11 + Canon 500D close-up lens. I was looking forward to try that combo, even though there are many things to do with the lens alone in the first place.

The plane of focus must be reflected on the ground showing a narrow sharp line that is absent on the shot. Moreover the foreground is heavily patched and has some evident areas of recurring textures/patterns. And it's a little bit more than "blah,blah, blah... just levels honestly". No doubt he is lying. Though I don't have enough facts to state that the background picture and the boy shot were taken separately.


If you read the thread to the end, he added that he had forgotten that he extended the foreground via cloning. This is why the ground looks so weird. There was originally too little foreground under the kid's feet.

I am not sure that it is fake beyond that. The depth of field is a bit odd, but so is the dof of the 50MP, and I don't know this lens. I don't like the look particularly though. As Samuli says, it looks like a cardboard person in front of a blurry backdrop, nothing inspiring there, and the colours look fake or wrong. I have never been that impressed with the photos I have seen from the 85L, but I am careful about saying that, since it has so many fans.

Thanks for posting this (and other photos to your Flickr) - checked also in large size in Flickr. 500D doesn't seem to decrease quality much - was this at maximum magnification?

I think I'll buy 500D with Zeiss 135, hoping to find inventory from somewhere - I was just last weekend on New York swearing that B&H just went out of stock when I arrived...

Twoeye, mountain shot is excellent. Great color set against the lack of it elsewhere.

Martynas, ship shots are excellent. A concrete ship Somehow, that sound almost as silly as making one out of lead.

Luan, which lens you shoot the sea shore photos? Liked most the 4th photo; water "texture" was nice.

Morten, not very exiting subject but very nice photo due to depth of field, excellent usage of focus-bokeh transfers.

Wilhelm, great "presense" on the 21mm shot even in webthumbnail size.

Ronny, liked both 2/35 shots with stairs - sunny (=very sharp lightning) weather combined to 2/35 contrast makes the overall contrast almost "slide like".

Johnny, you got lucky! Seeing the bag still standing there must have been such a relief.

Some of you might remember me selling a lot of my Zeiss ZE lenses? Well, I've only got the 21 and 50P left and was thinking to just quit using a DSLR.
I recently bought the Fuji 14mm (which is great), but it soon reminded me how much I've always loved my 21mm distagon.
Because of this I've decided sell the Fuji kit and don't abandon the DSLR just yet.

Yes, this was at maximum magnification.

To my eyes, it doesn't decrease quality much - it does a bit at wider apertures and near the frame edges. Not a big deal. It's definitely worth the purchase if you want to get closer and benefit from all the goodness this lens can deliver.

I plan on trying Kenko tubes also.

For the fun of it, here's another shot with the close-up lens, this one wide open.
