It looks great, but I already have the contax-g zeiss 90/2.8, so I'm looking for something a bit longer (135mm). If I could find a similarly small 150mm, that would also be of interest.

Thanks for the tip nevertheless!


Check out the Oly Pen 150/4. You probably won't get much more compact than that in a like focal length. The lens is sharp wide open, but the Pens aren't the contrastiest lenses available, and the color pallet tends to be fairly simple. It's not too hard to find for a decent price, either.

I have three 135mm lenses, but only the Jena 135/3.5 has a minimum focus distance of 1 meter. The others are aprox. 1.3. This is a big deal with hand-held closeup work. It is sharp. I also like it because it takes a 49mm filter.


Thanks!

there's a rokkor 135/3.5 too, no idea how it performs.

haven't had any chance to shoot lately , so here's the view out a window at work with the canon FL 55/1.2:

Nice catch, those Ferraris Sebboh...

Here are some test shots with a lens I've owned for a while, but never used; Contax 645 Zeiss 140mm Sonnar f2.8

My oldest daughter with Contax Zeiss Sonnar 140mm f2.8


Isabelle by briantho, on Flickr

My verdict of this lens after a few test shots on NEX (wide open) is that it has very low contrast, isn't very sharp, but that it's actually a very good lens for portraits, as the drawing syle and bokeh is very pleasing (imho) and the colors are fantastic. On the Contax 645 I imagine this lens is the perfect portrait lens, but it's not one of those medium format lenses that are as sharp on smaller formats. Still, it produces some gorgeous photos even on APS-C.

I have been away from this thread too long to comment on all the pics that are worthy of compliments. But this is a very nice church shot, eBookman, and lovely picture of your lovely daughter, Brian! Plus all the usual suspects, Jim and his exotic lenses, Philip Reeve (lovely last shot!), etc...

On my end, getting to grips with my Touit 12. As I have never really been a wide angle shooter, it is a challenge for me.

Not that your other four pictures are less than excellent, highfive, but your first one simply dropped my jaw!

Thanks Philber.
Its amazing how a flash and a homemade softbox make the colors and reflections in these little bugs shine.

No doubt. But still, your subject and composition are brilliant as well! BTW, have you thought about cropping out or cloning out the shadow on the top left? I think the picture might be better without i, but it is only a personal opinion...

That first shot is a show stopper. I would love to see a picture of your softbox.

high five i agree very nice set. First one is my fave as well.

sculptormic - nice set as well. I like the shot with the hand sticking out the VW,hard to believe that with a person right in front of the shot that it would work but you pulled it off nice job.
