Posted a similar shot to this in the NEX thread a few days ago. This one I had time to process more carefully.

Contax Zeiss 28mm f2.

The lighting and PP here give such a painterly look to this image, very nicely done.

Very nice BWs Greggf! I like 4th most I think. It really does have a bit of "old photo" look.
Thank you Mescalmba!!
Really starting to enjoy the C/Y 28-85! Granted it's slow, but it still has great pop, with all the other Zeiss characteristics!!

Well as far as Zeiss zooms go, its either that or nothing. Would be nice if they released some regular ZF/ZE zooms too.

28-85 is on my "eventually will buy" list, compared to Canon or Nikon offerings its really interesting.

...There is the 3.3/35-70, too, which has a fantastic macro, too. But I felt it lacking in overall range. Although, it did have some serious 3D pop to it though! But I think I like the 28-85, better, although, it is very hard to focus wide open at 28mm...much more so than my ZE 28?? go figure!

I have been way too busy to post. I keep shooting but no time to PP or post.

Great shots representing various zeiss lenses !

Just from the last page
Lieutenant - That grass shot is gorgeous. Love your pp work on that.
briantho - Beautiful color, very painterly. Gorgeous rendition of clouds
Ronny - Great street sereis, and the bug shot. I also like the architecture shot.
Greggf- Really nice work with 28-85. #1,3,5 of the first series are my favs. #1 for the rendition of bow of the boat, #3 for the tonality, and #5 for the composition.
PIcture this- Beautiful place. I like the vertical composition.
Mescalamba - That's cute.
R.Young - nice lighting

Thank you kindly, Akul!! The 28-85 makes for a great city walk around lens. I wish it was a bit faster, but that's what primes are for!!

Hey folks,

I'm trying to decide between the 35/2 and 50P for my first Zeiss lens. I've rented both and love both, but they're different enough to make this a hard decision. I've been lusting after the 35 for over a year now, but I recently tried the 50P and love the size and handling and OOF rendering. Really torn on this one...

Thanks Ronny, always enjoy your photos, and I'm glad you post them often!

I'm using a 5DIII now. Below is an example of I guess what I like about the 50P (and probably what a lot of people hate). The Sigma 50 1.4 would do a better job of smearing and blurring the leaves just behind and to the left of the flower, as well as above and to the right, whereas the 50P looks busier but more interesting to me. There are a few leaves even further behind that look smoother and more like standard blur. I also find the haze on the tips fo the petals pleasing, but there's still detail there in the water droplets. Just an interesting lens, or maybe it's just me!

Thank you
Which of the 2 you choose, it will not be wrong .. both are very good
sooner or later, you have both in your bag
Know that there are many here in zeiss thread that are very happy with 50 P
For my pictures 50 MP works best for me

Looks to me like it was tilted diagonally (probably used a Planar 80/2.8 on tilt adapter or Mirex).

Gregg's and RYoung, nice shots!

One from the CY 100/2. I have been shooting mostly with my 35 lately and forgot how much I love this lens.
