Lovely shots cyra and thanks for your comments. The 100 MP shots have zero added saturation or vibrance and very little processing at all. I just cropped to 4 X 5, did some highlight recovery and resized for the web. These muted swans do have pretty bright beaks, but I suppose it could also be the Canon tendency to oversaturate reds that is coming out here.

Out of curiosity, how much gear and what did you pack for your trip there? You clearly had the wide and super-telephoto ends covered just looking at the photos and I would guess some type of portrait lens besides the 50 planar.


Tamrac 5608, 5D2, 2.8/21 YC, 2/35 ZE, 1.4/50 YC, 2/100 ZE, EF 200/2.8L II, Gitzo G1548, Manfrotto 410.

The bag is always the most difficult decision. I have too many of them.

I am wondering how did zeiss manage to have a technically sharp lens at F/1.4 while maintaining very good bokeh? other lenses while they're technically sharp but falls apart on bokeh or vice versa.


Part of the answer, I am sure, is just the size of the thing. One common reason for poor boke wide open is mechanical vignetting, which I doubt this lens has much of (although I have seen a couple of shots which indicate that there may be some exceptions to that). Another part is that they just tried harder Lots of money (high price) opens up certain doors.

I am suspecting maybe Zeiss put in a apodization element?

Ah, you would be Jim of previous 200VR fame, no?

Let's do the Cove together sometime. Old (not so old) Doug, father of the original NC Zeiss thread, is here within a few miles of us, too. We could go as a gang of three.

The ZF 135 holds a special place in my lineup, even with the Otus 55, the Coastal Optics 60 APO and the Hartblei 80 tilt shift right on the shelf next to it. (A shelf, I hasten to add, which is not in my house but downtown.) That lens is just very productive; you can get

Yep, that's me. I would love to take a trip even local with you guys. I would especially like to get some pointers on shooting with a tilt / shift. I'm re-gearing at the moment. I sold all my Nikon gear last week and making the switch over to Canon. I'm hopeful to add a 17 T/S to the line up soon and will need some help with the learning curve. I'm researching videos / articles online while I wait on my new gear. Hopefully, a new 1Dx, RRS plate, Zeiss 21 and a few other items will arrive next week then I'll be ready.

Sorry for my delay in replying it's been one of those weeks. See my posts for a better understanding.

As for the photos in this thread ... amazing as always. One of my favorite threads on FM and only a handful I will stop what I'm doing to check when notification is received. Hopefully I will re-join the ranks next week.

Skypad - Nice shot! Size doesn't bother me. Great detail !
