Ron on the ocean shots #1 & #3 for me...I think the horizontal crops help reenforce the idea of how expansive that space is.

I think I will need to send the Sonnar to Zeiss for CLA. It is backfocusing.

PS: Do you notice a slight focus shift or is it my eyes?

Edward, nice portraits with the 85 Sonnar
Ron, I prefer the first one of the b&w pair. Interesting read about the 200-400 zoom, not sure why I read almost all of the thread when I have no real interest in the lens, maybe because it has a Leica worthy price tag
Gary, interesting to see some tele-photos with the new M. I'll probably be interest to get a little longer, 200-300mm, lens if/when I get my own M.

A Luka inspired theme from today. 90 Elmarit, 50 Summilux and 2 x 28 Summicron.

i don't think there is focus shift (but take that with a grain of salt).

on a related note...there's only a small hint of bokeh fringing at f2...and considering this doesn't have APO elements, that's impressive.

Phil, the bokeh quality of those two are quite different. I suppose a lot has to do with lighting and what it is that's out of focus. But still seems almost like two different lenses.

Thanks guys for your suggestions on the two B&W images. Allen, I agree with you about the first one and it's the one I was leaning more towards, but really like the lines of the rocks throughout the frame of the 28 Cron image. Also don't disagree with your thoughts on the water images. I guess with the verticals, my thought was it's a crop that forces one to look at that space from top to bottom rather than side to side and the greater tonal variation.

Joakim - thanks for reading the entire 200-400 thread. I really like the lens and it will greatly benefit the type of work I do with long lenses. Even stuff I normally don't, has been fun with it. But as I experienced with my trial of it at the re-enactment, it attracted way too much attention and actually made it difficult for me to go about working relatively unnoticed at nearer distances with the Leica kit. Great abstract set and I really like the second one a lot.

Gary, that sounds like a really good price for the 180! If you don't like it, let me know.

Edward - I don't notice any obvious focus shift. It's unfortunate the focus is not correct. When you had the 50/1.5, was rangefinder focus correct with it at its optimized aperture? Just wondering if it could be the camera as such discrepancies can be masked by slower and wider lenses. Though you do shoot a lot with the 50/2. The portrait looks really good though. From the blur circles, it would seem you stopped down a bit? I like the focus transition from this lens a lot and how it can keep shape/volume to things blurred out in the background.

Joakim and Phil, thank you for your comments!

Ron, thank you for your help. To be honest, I cannot rule out the camera entirely. The 50/2 and 35/2 are accurate at f/2, and the C-Sonnar was most accurate at f/2 as well, which is in line with reports from other users. But with the Sonnar 85, there is maybe 1mm or 0.5mm distance on the focusing ring where the RF patch seems to be in focus. If I try to focus at the nearer end of this "buffer" I get fairly in focus WO shots, but that is really very critical and almost impossible to do on a regular basis.

The portrait was shot at f/2.8, which in my opinion, takes care almost completely of the back focus.

I am thinking to buy a 1.4X magnifier but I doubt it will help a lot. A trip to Oberkochen, or to DAG, might be a better idea.

Thanks Ron yes they were taken w/both .9 ND filters, hence the different look possibly

Great shots all, and thanks for the earlier comments!

Peter, welcome to the thread and an excellent set in B&W!
Gary, funny one of your daughter! The 180 APO shots are superb! PP is nice. I need to try out some of the film modes. Thanks for sharing.
Edward, lovely portraits with the ZM 85/2. This lens is a keeper. Not sure if its backfocusing or the inherent Sonnar design?
Ron, very surreal and painterly like shots of the Lake, really nice and peaceful. Those BIF shots on the Canon thread are amazing! As Michael said, its the photographer. I prefer the 1st framing on the B&W ones.
Joakim, love the color theme and contrast on those shots, really nice.
Phil, I like the gentle tonality and pp on the 35FLE shot. Nice one!

Share some of your setup pics? We haven't seen some in a while. I'll start off.

zhangyue, kids are never to young to start having chores!
Peter, welcome to the thread!
Gary, nice score with the 180mm APO! Film modes don't look too bad to me, but I've yet to give them a good try myself.
Edward very nice portraits I especially like the backlight on #3
Ron, very nice BIF shots! That's one thing I've never managed to do well, so I have a healthy respect for people that can.
Tagfan, love the action shot
joakim great contrast with the purple on the rebar, #3 is my favorite
jojomon11, I understand missing colour, but keep up the great MM stuff. Love the shot of the roots.

And this one was shot with my D800, but I wanted to share Lee Valley had drawer foam on sale, so I picked up a few sheets and converted a kitchen drawer in an attempt to keep my camera stuff off of the counters:
