You know, looking at your photos, I need to pull mine out again I use it from time to time when the mood strikes me, and colour is more on my mind than resolution, and now I have the itch...

Some houses inspired by country in Amsterdam.

Carsten: Go for it. At least you got a selection of F-mount to play with. Looking forward to seeing your shots!
Sculpto: really nice. I don't think I ever so anything similar last time I was in Ams....

Thanks Krosavcheg! There is so much visitors don't see when they visit Amsterdam as you probably know from your own town.

Indeed. I stayed around Herengracht for 2 weeks mostly walking around that area.
I can still shoot a ton of photos there again.. Every day there is something new...

Herengracht is the most respectable and decorous (big money) canal of Amsterdam.

Yepp. We look down on Singel people because they are just wannabees...lol..
Seriously though, it's a beautiful place.
Have to dig out a shot from there....

Sorry for not being ZE/ZF/ZM - it's a CY35-70. Hope I will not be kicked in the nuts for this....

Nice one! Love the cirkels and streaming in the water.
I don't dare to take pctures like this. They might think I am a tourist

After about a week, I realised my jacket had "Press" badge pinned to it...XD!
I think tourist level of shooting is a snap during the day aimed at 45 degrees up, so you are safe..

I also spent some time with GW690III, so I got much more of approval looks from older gentlemen passing me on their bikes..

Now that is a camera fit for the Herengracht. No impressed young ladys?

I thought only red dots and Hasselblads were acceptable there..
Lol, not really. Only some weird brits showing me finger through pub windows and stoned people in the coffee shops with their eyes size of tennis balls motion tracking me...
But lingerie clad ladies seemed to be very cheerful and waved each time I passed through Red Light District..

You sort of summed up all the weak spots of this city.....

Ronny: You win.. Btw, why 28/2.8 and not 28/2 if I may ask?
Sculptormic: I suppose those work like magnet on the tourists.. I only went to coffee shop day before leaving since your mayor was going to pass the "Residents Only" law.
My main attraction was fallafels, shwarma, kebabs and sallad bars - I can't get that stuff in the land of raw fish..

Probably the minimum focusing distance (20cm on f2.8 ai-s and 25cm on f2) and the weight

OK, Ronny! I am over here too, as my recent purchase of a 35/2 (or should I say 2/35) warrants!

Still doing a comparison between the Zeiss, my Nikon 35 1.4 AI-s, and my Sigma Art.

Now I am wondering what second Zeiss to get for my D800? If I could only have one more? Right now it is a toss between the 21, the 85, and the 100. For the 21, I seldom do landscape, but that lens could be used for more. Same with the 85 and portraits, and the 100 and macro. Don't do any of them!

So the question is, what lens would most compliment the 35? I am leaning towards the 85, as I think the Zeiss 100 would be hard keep still hand held. I pretty much venture out with either the Nikon 35 1.4 and 85 1.4 AI-s, or the sigma and the Nikon 85 1.8G. I am comfortable taking these two focal lengths, and maybe throwing in a 20mm 3.5...

At this rate, I will soon be able to post lens photos on these forums!

Hmm tough choice .. 85 p is a little harder to focus with my opinion than 100MP especially at 1.4 to 2.0 (little focus shift ...nothing remarkable) and 100MP is not especially difficult to keep still and is quite easy to focus
But I love both .. and they draw different each other
Many here like 50 1.4 planar might be an option?
21mm is very good and as you say it can be used for much more than landscapes ..
I really do not know what I would choose .. If I not have been shooting macro, I probably would have skipped 100MP and maybe instead taken a 135 f2 sonnar?
Did you become wiser
