Sorry, more tests of the Nikon 180 vs. the Apo Telyt R. Georg, you are right, without the tripod and at about 1/250s or so, I likely had some camera shake.

This time exposure added (20% Shadows in PSE) since the snow is destroying my ability to estimate exposure. And these should show more of the background blur.

The Leica's more than twice the cost (some of the ones I have seen are more like three times) of the Nikon. Plus add the cost of replacing the mount with a Nikon F adapter.

First the wide open shots.

Leica at f/3.4

Philip, beautiful zurichsee scene and cute 50 1.2 pic of Margot!

Jeff, super Yosemite photos! That one of the climbers on the vertical rockface is magnificent.

Peter (Knysna), nice boat pics!

John, cool selfie and always like your mountain and climbing pics. The recent panos have been superb as usual.

Philip, what a wonderful portrait of Margot!

John, very nice sets from your hiking-trip! My fav is "Finally at the top".

Samy, your results are surprising to say the least. Thanks for sharing! If time and weather co-operate I'll try a comparison of those two lenses soon.

Thanks -

I had:
D800
16/3.5 AI
45/2.8 AI-P
90/3.5 CV SL-II (didn't take any images with this as I was too cold and had to get going)
spare battery
lens pen
step up rings
77mm CPL

I have the lenses in neoprene pouches and all of them plus the other stuff went into a small stuff sack. The D800 + 45/2.8 was in a wrap - all stuffed in the top of my backpack when not is use. I doesn't feel heavy when I'm using it, but when I was loading it all in it felt really heavy! That's why I'm putting together a m43 kit - lightness!

That's why I went with Fuji. Great quality and low weight. Still shoot my Nikon glass, just can't post it here.

. . . and they got a few from me.

Here's about a 270 deg. pano generated from six landscape orientation images using the 16/3.5 fisheye. PTGuiPro does an amazing job with these fisheye images to make a panorama.

16/3.5 AI, f/8, 1/350sec, ISO-100, D800

John, that shot is so bad that I think you need to send me the lens for proper disposal. Very nice image!

Samy very interesting comparison.
Sandy nice shots with the 20mm 2.8 It looks like a keeper to me.
Scott here's a shot using the 20mm 3.5 with a sorta sunburst

I donīt find the time to comment, read or post a lot, let alone pick up a camera long enough to take some photographs lately but this one is magic!

Samy thnx for those comparison shots. From those comparisons I prefer the results you got from the Nikon. Who knows, maybe those Leica digital cameras are not as bad as their reputation and itīs just the lenses that makes the results look so flat.
