It is not MY thread! I just like the ease of using it since I got my OMD. I admire your work - your pictures are what got me buying Zeiss lenses for my D3s over 2 years ago. You answered a couple of my questions directly in a thread, giving me hope! I have kinda let the Zeiss work go quiescent since I got the OMD 4 months ago. I thought a D800 might get me going with the Zeiss again - but to be truthful, after 2000 pictures, I give up - I don't like a single picture with it!! It is going to market this week.

Keep posting - and don't worry about my feeling - lots of things in this world don't go the way I would do them - but, hey I am not God! I love your work - especially with the Zeiss! Blessings!

I unfortunately didn't do any shooting this weekend between the lousy weather and the flu but here's a couple from a few days ago with the CY85

Okay, well, thanks again. I have to admit that I prefer Olympus colours to Nikon (or Canon) colours. I wish the big two would pay a bit more attention to pleasing colours and skin tones.

Out of interest, what kind of photography do you like?

I really love getting out in nature and shooting. Had a camera since I was 11 (56 years ago) and I always seem to gravitate to scenery. I, like you, prefer Olympus but I have only had one 4-5 months - been a Nikon/Minolta man my whole life. I think the color thing is why I moved to Zeiss lenses with the Nikon. When I would be showing my pictures to friends, almost every time a Zeiss picture came up, my (novice) friends would comment on the beauty of it! That will move you. Where in Germany do you live and what do you do?

I live in Berlin, a really nice city with quite fair cost of living, unlike most larger European cities. There is lots of culture here, and some really great galleries. The weather is a great compromise between warm, long summers and short, not-too-cold winters. I am a programmer, having worked most of my career in the field of computer graphics. I program in C++.

Ronny, first graffiti photo is great.
Lieutenant Z, nice work with the 85 Planar. I like how you handle the light.
Luka, nice set and the waterfall photo is great. I would perhaps lighten up or crop out the far left that is a little to dark but the rest of the photo has a very nice light and composition.

Lovely shots. How are you finding both the 21 and 15? I would have thought they were very close!

I thought so too but they're not. The 15 exaggerates things much more (obciously). I haven't shot the 21 is some time and was considering selling it for the 25/2. However, shooting it recently reminds me of just how good this lens is. Compared to the 15, I feel like I can use it in a more normal focal length setting. Honestly, I haven't done enough side by side comparison. Suffice to say, I love them both.

Very nice and diverse shots on this page, thanks for sharing Bob, Rob, Luka, Z & Ronny. Bonus cigars for the faint tasteful colors of the Luka light pole shot and Bob for shooting into the sun.
