And Thanks to Jim, Philippe and Sculptormic.

Highfive: Last one is really good.

Phillip Reeve: I really like your first one. Do you recommend the lens turbo? /edit: found your thread.

Today I've been out with my bicycle and the NEX-7 again. This time with ZA 24/1.8. Bad weather, therefore only two pics from Tiergarten

f5.6





f2.0


Enjoy Stefan

Stefan - I like these very much. I'm going to be in Berlin soon, and need to get to the Tiergarten.
HighFive - Wonderful images, all. I really liked the last one.
Phillip - I need to come take lessons from you.

Here are a few from today.

These are with the Leica 24mm Elmar and Nex 7.






















And these were taken with my new C/Y 85mm and SpeedBooster.












I think I need to work on downsampling. These are so much clearer before I convert them to jpg.

Sebboh, Really good pics. Do you have experience with the c/y 28, too. Is the Contax G as sharp or even better?

thanks! i haven't used the c/y 28/2.8, but zeiss's mtfs indicate that the contax g version should be a slightly better performer, especially as you move away from the center. on the NEX-7 i'm sure the c/y would perform better in the corners though. i have to stop down to f/11 to get decent extreme corners on the 7 (plus color correct the corners), things look much better on the 16mp NEXs though.

Phillip, the Lens Turbo seems to rock with rokkors ! Where did you buy yours ? The price was around 150€ ?

Phillip -

Thanks to the reference to the downsampling thread. I've read through it quickly, and am trying to process it all in my head. May I ask what you are using now?

i export a 6MP image as 16bit psd to PS, apply this action:

sharpening by reevedata, on Flickr

then i usually fade the sharpened layer by 50%

From my unscientific experience given my particular copies I'd say the Contax G on a 16MP NEX 5N rivals the CY (28/2.8) on a Canon 5D2 on the per pixel sharpness. And in my mind that is quite an achievement given the difference in pixel density.

People are rightfully saluting the CY 28/2.8 for colors, cross-frame performance and so forth. And the sharpness for landscaping is good, but not exceptional like e.g. the ZE 21/2.8.

What the CY may have, compared to the Contax G, is more Zeissyness.

interesting, i do think the g45 has more of a classic zeiss look than the g28 does, but i like the g28 more because of that, and the g28 still has plenty of 3dness for me.

have you compared the c/y to g on the same camera or are you just comparing the c/y on the 5DII to g28 on the 5N?

No, it's on resp. camera only.

Dont know much about the G45 despite having it, it's a tricky focal length for me. The G21 suits me better and is by far the sharpest thing (per pixel wise) I put on the NEX 5N. But that one suffers badly in corners.

Generally the CY's are too big to justify putting on the NEX as I have the 5D2. But the smallest CY around is the super-pancake 45/2.8 with the potential of protruding less from the body than the G45. Quite a feat for a SLR lens :-)

A couple more random shots with the Samyang 14. They're all linked to full-size images if anyone is interested in pixel peeping. The resolution into the corners is impressive, particularly on APS-C. I think I still like the rendering better with the CV15, but I haven't found time to do a direct comparison.
