I picked up a ZM Biogon 25/2.8 in a trade. It's my second go-round with the lens. I knew it was great on the 5n, but I didn't think it would be as good on the 7 and I had the Elmarit 24 ASPH by then, so I sold it. So this time around, while I was curious to see what it was like on the 7, I figured I'd end up using it a few times on the GXR and then selling it, but I was wrong. It pairs up really well with the 7. The corners aren't perfect focused for infinity, but they're better than the Elmarit and there's no color shift that I can discern in the short time I had to play with the lens before other duties called. What I love best about the Biogon is the close up performance. I like the bokeh, which is something I find tolerable at best with wides, and the low distortion is fantastic.

First is wide open, second is at f/4.

All I ever heard that it was no good on the 7. Always use it on the Ricoh GXR and never tryed it on the NEX-7.
Funny actually, one should always try oneselves and not only listen to other people
I will try it soon on the 7 because I really love the lens. One of the best out there, so clean and sharp and little distortion, perfect for photography with a lot of DOF.
I never used it for people or wide open shots only for architecture, cityscapes and landscapes.

yeah, always got to try these things yourself. i've heard many people tell me the g28 is no good on the NEX-7 either, but i love it. some people are more sensitive to these things than others.

i've always thought the zm 25 was a great lens for the 3d look (judging by other peoples photos) and it's supposed to be one of zeiss's sharpest lenses ever. looking forward to seeing more with it.

went to the beach today where it was unusually hot (for SF). here's a 50% crop from nex-7 + nikkor 105/2.5 AIS:





who says only the x-trans sensor can produce a watercolor effect?

Great shimmer action. Looks like Seurat painted that "people" strip right through the middle.

Wow! I can't see any color shift in that dog shot w/ the ZM25 at all. Yeah, I thought it'd have much more than that. After all, I had quite a bit of color shift with the ZM35, and I get shift with my Leica 21 and 28.

Remember, the color shift with the WA biogons is lessened dramatically at close focal lengths. Infinity is the big problem... But...it sure looks nice in these close-ups!

That's cool. I love what it did to Cliff House.

That happened to me to a lesser degree when I was in Aptos last year, only the air temperature was fairly cool (mid-70s at the peak of the day). So I panicked when I saw the results, thinking there was something wrong with the camera, and it was probably an hour before I thought through the fact that the sand had the sun beating down on it all day, so the surface temperature was high, even though the air temperature was mild.

So this one is set at infinity. It's at f/5.6. Anything lower than that and I would've had find the hyperfocal distance to even get the tree in focus. I've got a better place for a test like this where corner-to-corner performance can be better judged, and if I get a chance tomorrow, I'll drive up there and test it out. But this gives me hope.

Like I said, f/5.6 at infinity, neutral color profile, raised exposure a third of a stop and dropped the highlights -36 in LR. No color or contrast alterations, no corner fixes applied. Downsized via WPP with no sharpening. Second image is a 100% corner crop. And as I indicated before, the corners aren't perfect, but I still don't see any color shift.

That looks very nice, and I certainly don't see any color shift in the corners at all. hhhmmmm. I remember passing over the ZM 25 for the NEX-7 based on some samples I'd seen, but seeing these, it may have been a mistake... I'm using the 24 Elmar now, which is razor sharp corner to corner on the NEX-6, but lacks the wider aperture of the ZM.

The Elmar's an amazing little lens, and I'm not sure there's another 24ish I'd put ahead of it for landscapes. I'd say the C-Biogon 21/4.5 comes close, but there's so few digital cameras on which it can reach its potential, I can't even say it competes. I was stuck on the Elmarit 24 for a long time, and I'm fairly certain I'm going to miss it the next time I'm wandering around a big city at night, but I wanted something more general purpose in this focal length, and the Elmarit was not pleasing closer than a meter. I'm hoping the Biogon 25 does well with city lights, but it'll be a while before I can test that out.

You've got me wondering what kind of corner performance difference there might be between the 6 and the 7 with the Biogon. I've got a 5r right now, which I think is the same sensor implementation as the 6. I'll have to test it out.

yeah, i probably would have been freaked out if the effect were less dramatic. i could really see the distortion happening in front of me without the camera.

i was fooling around and broke the picture into 4 little pieces (all basically 100% crops) that i kinda like:

That's really cool. Here's a picture from yesterday, also with some heat shimmer, but due to something else:


DSC00307.jpg by Taylor Sherman, on Flickr


You can see the "chop" effect the propeller has had on the heat from the exhaust, then when it hits the wing things get fuzzy.

This is a 100% crop from a hand-held shot with the CV180 on the Nex-7.

Thank you SKumar25!

Went out with the Biogon 25 on the NEX-7. At infinity there are Margenta problems.
Not on these closer by shots so much.



















No idea what this is for, forgot to ask.
