Interesting comparison shot zombii. Yes, I am spending sometime getting the WB right, and using a Spyder cube, to get some experience on what the accurate WB is, and then compare it to actual WB. I have read that the best is to set it to Daylight, and adjust in ACR if needed. So far, it is very interesting, I am think... I am progressing

I find it hard to pick up the 5DII now, just it seems so much larger and heavier than what I remembered.


As it turns out, today offered a good opportunity to do the comparison I was talking about. In this case, the color rendition was very similar. Both images are raw conversions in Lightroom with default settings. Now the jpegs from the M8 were very different with decidedly yellow/orange clouds.

Sorry for the interruption Paul. This is all I have about this.

First image is from the M8 using a ZM 24. Second is from the 5D2 with a Summicron 35.

This difference of WB from different manufacturers of camera, in this lighting is normal. The 5DII does render better, in comparison without adjustment, but in difficult lighting I would always shoot RAW, and maybe have a white ref pt.

Excellent shots psquared. The sharpness of those two lenses wide open is the only legitimate argument I can see for their exorbitant price. Stopped down even to f/2, the pre-ASPH versions are super sharp and only give up anything appreciable wide open.

Nice shots psquared. I like the bokeh on the #1. What shutter speed were you using?

I find with M9, I can use about 2/3 of the 1/FL rule for shutter speeds now. With the 5DII, I would need to use about 1.5 times the 1/FL, to avoid any camera shack.

Nice side-effect of the Rangefinder design, people who look at you when you take the picture don't look like they're staring down the barrel in the resulting shot.

Great shots Thrice. Amazing at f/1.5. Really like #2, the sharpness on the eyes.

My ZM 50 Sonnar is arriving tomorrow.

Thanks, Rod.

Totally agree. I like the drawing of other lenses as well, but I'm very happy with these ASPH versions.

Any of you done a ZM 35 f/2 Biogon or 35 f/2.8 C-Biogon vs ZE/ZF 35 f/2 Distagon comparison? Does the Biogon have the same '3D' look?

Nice shots Luka. I really like the rendering in #4 and 5.

Excellent portrait Wilfredo

rsolti13, I know Makten has tried both the ZM 35/2 and 35/2.8, so he may be able to help. I purchased the ZM 35/2 because the ZE 35/2 is my favourite travel lens. Makten prefers the ZM 35/2.8 feels that this is a better lens. I would prefer the speed of a 35/1.4, but I will wait until I have learned more about the camera and how to use it properly.

I with you on this one, Philippe. This entire Alternative thread has cost me
