Few weeks out and so many pages behind...
Blackout, I went to B&H but forgot to buy the 500D I'll try to remember next time going to New York or some other place where prices are reasonable.
Rodluvan, really intensive colors with polariser, but sky looks weird with this wide lens.
Dave, the wooden well lifting mechanish is rather nice at larger size (in Flickr)
Fverburg, where in USA those were shoot? Quite similar sceneries as we have here in Finland. Liked the best "tree corridor" with 85P.
darbo, liked the beetle shoot with 2/100, great scene - almost all colors browns, yellows and greens.
akul, 3rd photo on page 851 has great light, so smooth but still having clear shadows.
Taylor, great "cloud scape" with ZM 2/50
I have been trying to learn new lens during this week. It seems great choice to use Sonnar design in 2/135, no matter how I have tortured the lens there is no way of getting bad bokeh from it - also bokeh has very subtle colours and contrast. Also I haven't yet been able to lure out any other ugly stuff e.g. CA in bokeh (or focus plane). All apertures between f/2 and f/11 seems to easily beat the old sensor of 5DmkII - actually with 5DmkII there doesn't seem to be any other quality defects @ f/2 than vignetting compared to f/4-5.6. Time will tell is this "only good" lens or will it have any character as well.
Unlike my usual style I have been enjoying (maybe too much) shooting wide open, many photos would be better when having more DOF, but I think I'll calm down at some point and start using my brains again
