Love the colors and rendering of the Emarit 28 v, especially the second shot above! Was there any lens correction, applied?? And, is it just me, but the Cron 50 doesn't seem to have very much CA at all!! I know it was discussed above(the 28 v2), so I thought, well, lets see where I can find one....Checked the 'Bay, and quickly changed my mind!! Whoa!
Gregg, actually the second image was shot with Summicron-R 50 E55, which I consider, along with other posters here as a great lens and an exceptional value. Agree, Cron-R 50 always appeared to me a supper clear lens when stopped down. I mostly use it, similarly to Summicron-R 35 E55, at f/2.8 - 4/5.6. Considering Summicron-R 50 E55 price and availability I see no reason not to have one.
JaKo, I have to compliment your "test" shots. While my brain thinks that my kit could make indistinguishable web-res images, my heart sees your pictures and says that I should get an R28 and A7R so that my images can have more of that character to them. But my eye for shots doesn't have quite the discrimination that yours shows. You've got a great eye for texture and contrast, and for lines that really invite me to feel like I'm in the scene. Kudos.
Post more of your work! That said, if you don't post so many images, my wallet will...Show more →
Jon, thank you. See, spring time and fall provide great opportunities to capture vivid colours during longer days. In late fall and winter I reside on trickeries by scouting grungy places with urban decay. Not pretty pictures, but good subjects for test captures. That brings colours and punch
As for going after specific lenses to obtain desired effect, well it's not always the case, but I am guilty of it myself and I always blame for it Alex (worldinlens), Michael (zhangyue) and others in this thread and almost everyone in Zeiss thread. And of course my wife blames me, but then again, I tell her to blame Alex, Michael, Manu and others... You know how it goes
Speaking of Elmarit-R 28 v2; perhaps this post may interest you.
