Great photo's everyone.

Adam - sorry to hear of your problems. That can be a big stressor - especially when a wedding gift is involved. It may be a long shot but you can also try The Camera Store here in Calgary. Ryan and myself both got our M's there and my opinion is that they are the best place to buy camera gear in Canada. Best of luck!

Hi Phil: I have it. What do you want to know about it?


I haven't shot much with it, but posted the following early in 2012 here: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/920070/464#10305232

First is CV50 uncoded then 50 Lux ASPH coded:












Notice any difference? There is some. The 50 Lux ASPH renders much smoother backgrounds. Some quick testing for OOF specular highlights indicates that the CV50 will produce brightline rings for OOF speculars behind the plane of focus, but not in front. I do like the character of the CV50 but it does purple fringe with high contrast transitions. Seems to be a 'feature' of numerous CV lenses, such as the 40 and 75 f/1.8, though I haven't noticed it with the 35 f/1.2 II except when the the brightness difference is extreme...












Shot on the Ricoh GXR:
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/920070/464#10305502

Four-way shootout:






















GXR, cropped around 30% because the 90cm minimum focusing distance of the CV50 resulted in a pretty loose shot: 50 Lux ASPH, CV50 f/1.5, ZM50 Planar, CV40 f/1.4

WB based on the ZM image, brightness adjusted to match the white in the C of Canon. Of the various LR parameters, contrast was set to zero, black point at 5, clarity at zero.

Also, here is a link to some comparison images on the GXR between the CV and 50 Lux ASPH: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1043757/22&year=2011#10304916

My enthusiasm for the CV is fairly cool. It's a competent lens and sharp centrally but the purple fringing bugs me somewhat. That said, when I shot these, it was the era of Lightroom 3 prior to the current defringe tool, which will probably mitigate this problem. Blur discs can also show the onion ring effect, which you can slightly see in the 4-way comparison image.

I guess in terms of look, it's somewhere between 50 Lux pre-ASPH and ASPH. The new redesign of the body is pretty slick looking, IMO, but it's optically identical to the old one which I have (though I think focusing is now to 70cm). For the money of the current version, I'd rather spend it on a 50/2 Planar or the 50/1.5 Sonnar. The Planar is a more perfect lens with bolder Zeiss rendering (though busier OOF background rendering) while the Sonnar has more vintage character. Or for about double the price of the new CV, a user grade pre-ASPH... but you should be able to find the previous version CV used for under $500.

Zhangyue, love the window portrait. Thanks for the congrats. The flare/ghosting is actually minimal compared to other non ZM lenses, especially that I was using a UV filter, but my other ZM have zero flare/ghosting.

Joakim, that's a really nice shot!

Tag, nice family moment there.

Ron, very interesting comparisons. Always learning something new

Ron, I believe yours is the ltm version not the new M mount version?

Actually its quite interesting topic you brought up on the Planar and Sonnar design being modern and classical respectively. According to camerapedia, the 6 element Planar debuted in 1890s while the Sonnar was launched in 1932, first with the 6 element 5cm f/2 collapsible, then in 1935 with 7 element f.1,5, the world's fastest 35mm lens.

Hi guys, thanks for all the words of encouragement. And thanks for the tips, I've emailed dale photo and ken, and even the camera store in Calgary.

We'll see how this works out, I'm just sad because I had planned to wear the camera around my neck during the wedding (and really annoy our photographer, I'm sure). I can't stress about this anymore I have to focus on getting all the wedding planning done. Still a bit behind on flowers/decorations, and a few other things.

While I'm on here, I agree with airfrogusmc, love the colors as always zhangyue.
joakim - perfect time of day to have shot that building, love the suns reflection on BnW..

Thanks again guys for the support. I'll be posting eventually..

I guess so Joe.... but I think you know what I mean.
And yes, I have the CV50/1.5 LTM, but it is optically identical to the new M version.

Adam, if you're going to try a Canadian retailer, perhaps also Jean at Camtec in Monrtreal or Jeff at Photocreative in Mississauga.

Thanks Ron! Nice samples, I just pre-ordered the M mount version, sorry for not being to descriptive.

If it looks anything like your samples, I would be happy with it

I have high hopes for it esp. in the rendering department wide open

Phil

Forgot about Jean @ Camtec - they are quite good as well. A few of my Dad's daily driver.... These were fairly quick snaps before he left and I was shooting right into the sun. I really noticed a big drop in contrast. Pretty good subject to shoot so I may take it out to the country for some more pics.

Gary thanks for the other recommendation. I'm not really a fan of my 35summicron-asph, but when I look at the shot you've taken with it, I start to second guess my dislike for it, awesome car BTW.
