Sebboh, good sharpness on the little birds and the beaver. What lens is that?

JaKo, love that colorful bus!

Just out of curiosity...for those of you that have the 80 Lux. It looks absolutely incredible WO, and I'm basing that on shots I've seen throughout the pages of this forum, not my experience. But, how is stopped down sharpness? Taylor's last shot at 5.6, is the only one I think I've seen stopped down! In comparison, I know the Zeiss 85 is a beast around f4/5.6...what about the Lux?? And how does it stack next to the 90's(Leica's), too? I have the Sigma myself, and can say I think the smallest I've shot it at is f4, where is is also incredibly sharp!! Not looking to start anything, I'm just very curious....

My (ex-) copy was soft wide open, but a kind of soft-over-sharp look. There was resolution there, but with a veil. Stopped down it is a razor, starting about f/4-5.6. I have not compared it to the Zeiss (which I have now), since I never owned them both at the same time, but they are both fantastic lenses. I would say that overall perhaps the Leica is very slightly stronger, given the smoother boke and less CA, but they are both fantastic.

Thanks Carsten...my only problem(well not really a problem!), is the Leica is a little, just a little, cost prohibitive!!!

thanks! the lens is the R 350/4.8 telyt. sadly sharpness should be better. my hand holding technique with the nex-5n leaves something to be desired and iso is boosted past the point where a lot of feather sharpness is lost in noise.

here's one more though:

Curiosity is a very expensive hobby.....

I posted previously a test shot for these lenses:

1- Leica Summilux 80/1.4
2- Zeiss ZF2 85/1.4
3- Nikon 85/1.8 G
4- Leica Summicron 90/2 Apo Aspherical

Enjoy the reading and watch out for the TaxMan!

@Almass...thanks for the link! Interesting reading, and comparing! I do have to say I would love to have your income to be able to have just a few of the lenses you mentioned!! WOW! Especially the 90 AA!! Maybe one of these days! For now, I'm very happy with my 50R Lux, and hopefully in the future will get the 90 Cron non AA...time will tell!
Thanks again very much,
Gregg

The focusing on my copy was also quite stiff. Get the Zeiss second-hand, great lens, and much cheaper. Get the ZF if you don't need to shoot on Nikon, and save another couple of hundred.

I already have the Sigma 85, which I find excellent for portraits when doing photo shoots. I'm currently shooting the 90 R Elmarit(loaner) and love the rendering it provides. And it does portraits really well, too! I had the ZE 85 awhile back, and while I liked it a lot, especially Ronnie's images, I think I like the Leica rendering a touch more...not that I can afford an 80 Lux anytime soon!!
Thanks,
Gregg

+1, good advice. Z 85 Planar is a bargain (especially used ZF)

Great lens and images Gregg!

Here's a couple of night scenes from Baltimore with the 90 f2 Summicron. No tripod unfortunately, semi-stabilized on whatever was available.

Where was this chickadee? Several years ago I was greeted with scepticism when I reported a Black-capped Chickadee at Point Reyes.

What's a chickadee? Isn't that a tit (titmouse)?
