very helpful guys.

iffy, nervous, ungraceful... sounds like a perfect lens for me. especially since I know it's wickedly sharp in the center which works for rangefinder guys like me.

for closeups I will be using the same metal Bogen tripod+head I use for my Sinar and film is going to be 100 speed b&w which I develop myself. I just shoot digital for color so being able to put this on some of them seems fine.

gonna miss the M2 a lot tho =[ still as film production winds down it's probably better to have my limited budget in lenses.

Carsten this might be a big ask but is there any way you could take some direct comparisons? Doesnt matter if theyre on different cameras. Boring subjects you find around are fine, what Im really interested in is seeing how the transition to OoF differs and how severe the rendering in the plane of focus is. anything you could do in the f2-f4 range below 3 meters would be spectacular.

I do have some other options... crons, maybe the 35/2 biogon? could keep the body and sell only the lens in those cases.

I can't offer you much for your trouble, but if you find yourself in Texas I could buy you a beer or two.

I did do a whole bunch of comparison shots, and they are in this very thread. I think they are around page 100, but I am not certain.

Carsten I found your comparison between the slr 50P and the 50MP which was very informative, but I don't have the SLR version of the 50P. I have the ZM 50. Did you also do a comparison between those earlier in the thread?

I was wrong: I bought my 50MP on page 341.

There are lots of 50P shots in the following thread, and my opinion is better in that one; ignore what I wrote in this thread and read what I wrote in that thread; I must be in a bad mood now or something; the 50MP is obviously a great lens, but there are definitely very valid reasons for preferring the 50P. Even Philip agreed with that back then

Here are some comparison shots by Samuli:

Here is one of Ryan's shots which shows the worst possible results from the 50MP:

Ah. No, I have never tried the ZM50P. I hear it is a very nice lens, but somewhat different (stronger?) than the ZF50P.

A couple of shots which show some of the problems I had with the 50MP when I first got it:

Carsten, appreciate the resources.

But given what Im looking for, what Im seeing is the drawback of the MP for me are the weight and that someone has to buy my stuff first.

Thanks, Iltruong!

User222, first and last shots are really nice.


50MP vs. 50P

I have the Contax 50P and recently bought the ZE MP. My wife usually fights me on lens purchases, because she is the more practical one. I told her I would likely sell the 50P to restore some cash to the wallet. She asked to see images from both. I showed her some. She replied, "you can't sell that lens. the two are totally different in how they look."

If she can see it...

I love both, use both. I prefer the 50MP for its versatility and macro capability. The 3D and subtlety are better on the 50P. It is not as large a difference as between the two ZE 35s, but they do differ.
