Rich, I like the composition of your 2nd and 3rd set, However, I feel their color looks weird that seems you clip the yellow and green channel. I think adjust WB and turn down yellow saturation/luminous slider will help. Or is there too much compression in JPG? Hope you don't mind.



Thanks for the comments and recommendations. I presume that these comments and recommendations are aimed at the 2nd and 3rd set.

The work was done in LR4.4, I am by no means an expert in LR4.4 or CS6. Yes I corrected the WB since the camera was set to Auto. I adjusted the exposure of only 1 image by +..24.stop.. I did work on the shadows, hightlights, darks and whites in both this area in LR and also the Tone Curves for all of the images. I also increased the contrast of the images a little as well as the clarity. Additionally I increased the vibrance and the saturation a little. Perhaps, I increased the vibrance and saturation a little too much.

I did not make any adjustments in the color, saturation, and luminance portion of LR. As to clipping, looking at the color histogram, the yellow and green never appears to be well controlled and from what I interpret it, never approaches clipping.

Anyway, I had intended for many of the images in 2nd and third set to look backlit for those that were and those with front lighting the warm late afternoon color.

Took a walk to see the Sakura cherry blossoms which were at peak bloom a day before I took these pictures. It was a beautiful morning!

6D with 28 v1 or 50 or 90 cron (prev version). I think if I'd been there an hour earlier, I would've hit magic hour and had nicer pink colours on the blossoms.

These are great: is the second one the 50 cron? The rendering remind me a lot of the Rokkor 58/1.2.

Alex & Michael; Thanks for you comments.

I feel that my current lens selection more less covers my needs, but Summilux-R 50 E60 may be the last lens I would like to have in my collection. At this point I will wait for the new Zeiss 1.4/55 and see how it compares to Lux-R 50.

Actually, I was thinking about a trick he had pulled to turn his two kids into pigeons. THAT itself could a very profitable secret, especially around September.
Just kidding, Michael, you know that.

I am pleasantly surprised how bright [in OVF] and easily focused Lux-R 80 can be!

I don't disagree It should be either f2.8 or f2.
Thanks for all your comments. I appreciate.

Jako, That is a very nice portrait from 80lux. as for my kids, I wish they are, but here you can see they are around.







And again, can you AF this this shot illustrate why I enjoy manual focus so much, I deliberate have both my Son and that first pigeon in focus. I need adjust/tilt my body/camera for that happen. and all focus by eyes.

And this one is even more like your shot, Derek, the difference is I am taking a pigeon pic, but you are photographing wild bird

I can't believe how sharp this lens is at f1.4. It almost make me confused about their publish MTF. How possible?

Published MTF if they come from Zeiss or Leica are usually real. And from anyone else usually not. (Sigma is exception lately I think)

Difference is caused by calculated MTF (how good should perfect lens be in theory) and measured (how good are real lens in real life).

zhangyue: interesting shot of Carrot Top alike.
Your images seem to have very minimal PP despite your comments/notes on custom lens profiles. Could you please elaborate more on this?
Thanks

I mean the images seems sharper/better than their published 50lux V1 MTF, which is very similar to Zeiss Planar MTF, but real world image is vast different at 1.4.

Jako, indeed, my work flaw all happened in LR, thus PP should be qualified as minimal. For 80lux, I have found its rendering is very smooth and glow at WO to my taste, so I usually will not boost Clarity, Contrast, Saturation slider in LR. on the contrary I apply negative value in those slider most of time and just let lens doing its thing. 80lux almost like good food with its natural flavor with no need of any souse to harm its special taste to my like.

This is purely personal and highly depend on subject. So, I was trying to suggest people trying different way to treat this lens and see if they like it For me, this 80lux is the only lens I have no complain on anything, I love its character, and fully satisfied lens designer's choice balance optics and character instead of chase optics performance only. In no way it is not good at other thing but I can safely say It is a one of best tool for it's designed for: portrait.
