Carten, Joakim, Samuli, Picture this, Gregg Thank you !!

Samuli - As always, love the capture of air with your shots. Strong being there-ness.

Gregg - Great to see your work again. I hope your planar will find its infinity. I like your shots of your son!

Bob - Nice warm hot air from Jamaica. Great set capturing your trip.

Wilhelm - Great architecture shots. #1 especially. 70s ? It looks a bit more 80s but Swedes are ahead of design trend, so it makes sense.

michael - great set from film. Very nice.

Thanks guys for kind words.

Luka, the only thing that Sweden may have been ahead in there is brutal cost effective building style or something, not the fine art of design :o)

Gregg, I would expect the 50/1.7 to be very sharp stopped down @ infinity. FWIW, as an example, the 28/2.8 is remarkably varying with the tiniest adjustment. Some of the building shots from yesterday are tack sharp (@21MP/4-800ISO) but many went to the trash. Perfect infinity on that lens is just before the hard stop but will have to be placed very exact. I shoot non-tripod/handheld so I have no patience to use LV and magnify and all that. The infinity marks (lying "8") first circle middle have to be at the distance mark, tolerance is that small. I had of course tested beforehand, for infinity I cant use the trusted OVF. Perhaps your lens is as demanding, just a thought.

BTW, really like #2 - makes me long even more for the late spring we have here.

Bob, Jamaica cigars photo made we want cigar even I don't smoke...quite challenging background but result is very nice.

Michael, liked the landscape shot with Sonnar 2.8/85, the fence looks really nice (dark things, with snow on top of them scaled down sometimes make this happen).

Gregg, nice usage of Planar "crazy bokeh", thou I don't understand how you managed to make it happen on last photo since distance to dog/focus plane is not even close minimum focus distance.

Wilhelm, "Humble CY 28/2.8" to me this lens always makes bold statements. Liked the blue hill shots, inspired me to post these Tampere 60's and 70's architecture:

Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1,4/85 @ f/8, 1/640s, 5DmkII


Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1,4/85 @ f/5.6, 1/640s, 5DmkII - larger

Nice pictures, the mode makes me depressed. On a good day, that area is depressing enough. Add the grey sky, the naked trees and brown grass after the long winter, and it truly looks like a nightmare. I'd kill myself if those blue boxes were where I had to head home to after work.

Something different. S5 + C/Y 50/1.4 (at f2.8 I think).

wfrank...it's actually the 1.4 mmj version! I think it's more the adapter than anything. I have three(just picked up 2 more), and I think I will adctually stick with my original.

Gregg, nice usage of Planar "crazy bokeh", thou I don't understand how you managed to make it happen on last photo since distance to dog/focus plane is not even close minimum focus distance
Samuli...now that you mention it, I did notice that it(bokeh) looks very similar to the ZE/ZF bokeh circles. Could it be the sharpening?

Here is the actual raw file straight from LR4.4...and the second shot is a revised white balance version of the same afterwards..
I think I like the WB change a little better, and the bokeh doesn't look as harsh...I think!!

Ronny Olsson...
Really enjoy the colors of your first flower with the 100MP!! Absolutely stunning! And all your German Shepard shots with the 85P are phenomenal, to say the least!
