p.6 #1 · Zeiss 2.0/50mm MP ZE


Since you are talking about ZE 50 f:1.4, the "un-sharp" Zeiss 50, here is an example from today. A delightful lens for this type of shooting, as long as one has my obviously low standards and expectations...




  Canon EOS 5D Mark II    50mm    f/4.5    1/50s    100 ISO    0.0 EV

Yesterday I took some snapshots in the Munich botanical garden with the 50MP.
All handheld with ambient light, some are slightly cropped.

p.6 #5 · Zeiss 2.0/50mm MP ZE


Just got the lens this morning, here are few test shots I took today. Nothing spectacular just quick shots to make sure I got a good copy. I was pleasantly surprised that the colors are very neutral and truthful. All were taken on Canon 5D and are straight exports from Lightroom. I did get a little bit of cramp in my left hand from turning the stiff focus ring for the first hour, but I think I adjusted now. This will certainly be a challenging lens as I am not used to manual focus. That's partly why I bought it, to have something challenging and very different from all my other lenses. So far I'm very happy about the IQ and built quality. Can't wait to try it outside when the weather gets better.

f/2.0

Yes, I also loved how clear and detailed the shot was, considering the depth. I should have no excuses with this lens.

Hum. You used the 5D; is it your post processing or does the 5D have noticeably better colours then the mk2 ?

No post processing, just straight Lightroom export. Not sure about the colors on mk2. I assume they should perform the same on both bodies, but without direct comparison it would be difficult to judge.

Here are few more I just took this morning. Again nothing artistic, just merely testing my manual focus skills - I certainly have some learning to do, especially at f/2.

f/6.3






f/2.0 - I should not have centered it, it could be a keeper.






f/4.0






f/5.6 That woodpecker has been getting on my nerves for the past few years. Just drilling holes everywhere and as soon as I patch them he makes new ones before I even get a chance to paint the patch. They're protected though so not much I can do...






f/2.0 - this one needed more DOF

You can't beat the woodpecker at it's own game, so just take photos of it...
