Finally bought a ZE 21 after renting one often and see-sawing back and forth about it or a 2/25. Great deal emerged, and I couldn't be happier. My first set from it.

Congrats Grenache, you're gonna love that lens!

Thank you everyone that responded to my thread about focal lengths a while ago. I ended up taking the 21, 35 and 50 to my trip and I had tons of fun with it. I made a decision to switch to a different system so this is probably going to be my last set from these lenses, I know I'll miss them very much . Anyway here are some pics from the trip, I'm not going to flood the thread but you can see some more in my flickr set.

Beginner question here: How hard is it to manual focus these lenses on either a Nikon D600 or D800? Are the screens good enough for reliable focus or is your hit rate much lower than you would like?

Great images here.

If you get your camera and lens calibrated focusing is easy once you're used to it. You don't even need to look at focus confirmation for most scenes.

My hit rate with D800 and a series of ZF.2 lenses is decent, but lower than I would like. Part of the problem is surely the focus shift that several of my lenses have. When it is really crucial to nail the focus, I re-focus until I get it right, or use live view.

Rirakuma, Absolutely beautiful images, thanks for share. Since you mention it, I wonder what system could be better you switched to replace D800 and ZF?

Zhangyue, thank you for the kind comment. I'm switching to Leica, its not necessarily better but I like to shoot discreet and there are often times I feel that the D800 is too intrusive. I did consider using Zeiss lenses on the Leica but I wasn't sure if I like the fingerprint on the ZM lineup, I felt that the ZF/ZE lineup had a more pleasing rendering compared to the ZM although I could be very wrong. I will miss the Zeiss pop though, here's one with a bit of pop from the 35/2.

Coincidentally, I took the same set of lenses for our trip last week; however, 50MP didn't get any use. Similarly, while visiting Prague last summer 21/2.8 ZF was mounted most of the time. 50MP purchased for that trip was great for food close-ups though.

Few hand-held shots from Cabo San Lucas:

Awesome pics Jako , like you the 50mp didnt get used much on my trip either. Not that its bad or anything but I'm just pushing myself to use the 35 more often.

Great set above! If you're switching to Leica, be sure to post some images in the M8/M9 thread. While there, check out what Edward is posting with the ZM 18, 25, 35/2, 50/2 and 85/4.

I started with ZM on my M9 and definitely like the Zeiss contrast/clarity. Not sure if the lenses share the 3D pop of some of the ZE/ZF... but then there is also the whole range of Leica glass to consider. I thought it was overrated, and maybe it is for some, but there is something to it, just as there is something to Zeiss glass. Of the Leica M lenses I've tried, I'd say the 28/2 and new 21/3.4 have a certain contrast/vibrancy to them that hints at Zeiss.
