Wish you and your family all the strength to get through this time Kevin.

The prior version of the 50 1.4, SC, was multicoated, so I am presuming the K version would be too.

Question for you all. As you know, I have a 50/1.4 K lens... Is there anyway to find out if it is single coated or multi-coated? I have seen references to both and kind of would like to know for sure.

Hope all is well here! I haven't been around much, had a personal tragedy at home which has kept my online time to a minimum lately.


Hi Kevin, I'm very sorry to hear about your family.
While I'm basically looking for an old 135/2.8 I think high shipping-expenses and customs fees would make a deal too complicated. Don't know about the 50/1.4K and it's coatings, but it's fore-runner, the "SC" is multicoated, so I suspect the "K" could be a MC-lens too.
That said, I've shot a couple of portraits with the 50/1.4 SC this monday and got "extraterrestrial" flare ;-) My copy of this lens is really worn and it's coating damaged - cleaning marks all over.

Thank you Samy. And our good friend Curtis convinced me to get them both by letting me try them out for a day! A big thanks to Curtis for the 35mm 1.4 AIS and the 85mm 1.4 AIS, advice that still is going forward!

Nice to know that no one has forgotten what this thread is all about… We shoot with them but to do that we have to buy them… Nice to have friends who offer encouragement.

Still standing on the sideline but check things out from time to time to make certain no one has gotten in trouble with Zeiss lenses… Have fun everyone!

We miss you dearly Curtis
After a little nudge from Leighton about my never taking photos of people, I went out today to see the new engine and caboose being "installed" downtown today. I took my 180mm 2.8 AIS to give it a go at some photos of the crowd.

Curtis, my grandfather used to say to us kids: "First the nose and then the specs". Your words above seem to follow the same logic… Nice to hear from you!

A badly executed image from today - shot this one while walking to my parking car.
Two horizontal shots with the PC-E 45/2.8 - one shifted all the way to the left, the next shot shifted to the right. Maybe I re-shoot the old building with the 28/3.5 PC or with an "ordinary wide-angle-lens"…
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7304/10855718994_cb173fec6f_o.jpg
The extreme corners (when fully shifted) are really soft - this one was shot at f/4. D700
Sorry for the large display, I just can't get the image smaller without ugly artifacts.


Georg, you are too hard on yourself. I like this composition a lot.

Georg, looks like you can get nicer OOF backgrounds with this on your FX body than I can on my DX body. Still one of my favorite lenses.

I may have a way around the shipping issue. I will look into it and see. Where in Germany are you?

The drama is over, the hardest pain is subsiding, but the loss will be a long time in fading. My wife and I miscarried last week and it took three days to remove the fetus from my wife. Very hard times.

Scott I was just thinking today that there are a few of my lenses that I much preferred on my D7000 as opposed to the D600. Namely the 16mm 3.5, 24mm 2.8, 105mm 2.5, and the 300mm 4.5. In looking back over my photos these lenses just seem to resolve better on DX. Kinda wish I had kept it!
BTW we haven't seen you use that 18mm 3.5 Lately

Ray, you found some human beings in Florida finally The middle picture is interesting, the children seem to be enjoying themselves, while their mother is engrossed in her iphone, which is more the unfortunate norm for people nowadays.

Jay, that was a very interesting "tree" house! Can't imagine a water tower getting converted to living quarters, but sure makes for a very neat structure to look at.

Kevin, sorry to hear about the loss. I know from experience how much of a loss such an experience can be. I hope you and the wife will find your ways to be there for each other, to support each other and soon see that there is a world of beauty waiting for you still when you get back. My thoughts are with you both.

Georg, do you need it for parts? I have a 135 f2,8 Q here that I could send you against shipping cost, but the aperture lever thingy is misaligned (aperture still works when taking the lens apart and moving it manually, I just don´t get the parts lined up without taking out the lens assembly) and the focus helicoid is damaged. Glass is good though, and it has an Ai converted aperture ring.

If you´re looking for a working one Kevin might be able to help out. Shipping for the lens should be about $16 through USPS and tax and duties comes down to 19% on top of what Kevin wants for the lens. Personally I never had much luck with the 135 Q and it is considerably bigger then the f2,8 Ai-S or f3,5 Q.C versions otherwise I would be all over that lens. 135 is about the perfect focal length for dog-in-action shots on a crop sensor

Georg that environmental photo is really nice. You nailed the focus on the eyes!
Samy the artwork is lovely and I love the dark feel. This really makes the art shine. The monument is perfectly framed against the church and gives great proportions.
Thank you Leighton and Samy.
Samy I too was a little taken back by the Iphone until I realized that she was chimping a photo that she had just taken of the crane lowering the train engine on the tracks as shown in the photo below
