Luka, I like the first one of the winter shots. Nice with the different layers.
Bob, the last one stands out. I think it is the dark pipe and shadows that I like about it.
Carsten, the 3D effect in the first is almost to much but I like it. The last one is the best photo though in my opinion.

I guess the colours make the third one. Strange to walk into a partly abandoned place and see such colours.

Too much 3D, eh? Time to start a new thread?

Luka, Joakim - thanks to both. I'm starting to really enjoy this 85!

Carsten - I love the first and the 3d effect!

It's amazing how much color and texture exists in these places. The building I've been visiting of late is no exception! All but the last are 5-shot HDR with NIK HDR Efex

Nice picture of the German shepherd. Reminds me on the same dog I had as a child.

I recently bought a CY Sonnar 135/2.8 (AEJ, "ninja star" aperture @ f4) on the B&S board. This lens tends to be one of the less well reputed items in the CY line, especially being overshadowed by the 100/2 (and 100/3.5, 85/2.8 sonnars). But it was cheap, so I picked it up for a try, and got my first break in the rain to take it out this afternoon. For the price, I think it's actually a rather nice lens.

Build quality is great; it's a moderately heavy, dense, and slightly front-heavy. The lens has a "Leica-style" pull-out hood, and Zeiss was kind enough to keep 55mm filter threads by using a steeply angled front name plate (handy for consistency with most shorter CY lenses). Sharpness is uniform and decent at all apertures (not a super-resolving heavyweight, but little more could be gained on my 5D); slight lateral CA is only sometimes visible (generally well controlled). There will be magenta/green fringing in front / behind the focal plane; the plane of focus is not as "clean" and sharply delineated as with, e.g., the Planar 100/2. Vignetting is unobjectionable, and mostly gone by f4. I'll let some photos do the rest of the talking:

Nice shots with the Sonnar!

Here's a couple of Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis with the CY85

Going through some old family slides, i guess these were taken by my granny with a Contaflex III with a 50/2.8 Tessar lens:

Dergiman, great to see those photos. From a vacation in Sweden perhaps, the first one is from Stockholm at least.
