Hm, rendering is similar to old Planar, but it seems sharper.. Tho I dont have D800 to test it.

Nice test btw. maybe I could get 85P next..

The 85P is sharper wide open than the 50P I think, although these shots don't show how much work I had to do to the 50P wide open shot to make it look sharp

If its not that different from my old 50P then I have very good idea how much work it took.

Actually it does seem to be. I hadn't realised that the wall ran there, but it appears to have:

I found an interactive map of the wall, but it doesn't seem to have any way to save a location. I have added a little black square right on the guard tower, near the bottom-right of the cluster of points, close to Oberbaumbruecke:

Rollei badged Zeiss lenses, but also Schneiders. I think yours are both Zeisses though, so they certainly count here!

Holder_Quantity: 1 Single Channel VARIABLE MF Holder for Epson Thickness: .5 mm, is backlogged a week, so i guess ill need to use an alternate method to post my film results, wish me luck! http://www.betterscanning.com/scanning/models/v500.html

Wow, quite an urban artifact. I did not think any of the guard tower would be still standing there.
