I like that one Carsten. It also looks like you have the same kind of winther weather as we have here in the south of Sweden

Happy holidays

That was a blue-sky day!

As an aside, the LR 5.3 lens profile for the ZF 35/1.4 is not very effective for the A7 w.r.t. CA. Hopefully there are improved ones on the way.

This shot is interesting (to me). Hand-held, 1/8s, pitch-black, I could hardly see what I was looking at, middle of a forest by moonshine, the noise outpaced the content by a healthy margin in the EVF. ISO 25600, cleaned up nicely, won't ever be truly sharp, but it still surprised me. A7, ZF 35/1.4 @ f/1.4:

Kinda creepy too!

Definitely some banding going on at the bottom, and what looks like bleed-through from somewhere almost? EG why is it purple at the bottom but not other dark areas.

But, ISO 25,600 -- I'm not complaining

Yeah, I don't know, picking up some rare earth rays or something, but given the circumstances, I am not complaining either

Factoid: this is on the way back towards the train station from the Andechser Klosterbrauerei in Bayern. Amazing beer there, of which I had not a little.

It's the Sandman. But no worries, he will dig you out.

Yup. The shot was taken in a ghost town in the Sperrgebiet, which is a diamond mining area in the Namib Desert. This is what it looks like:

Oops. I missed that question. That would be a D2/35 on a 5D2. The overview also includes a D2.8/21 YC and a P1.4/50 YC.

Toothwalker - Fantastic. Creepy, sad, and beautiful.

Carsten - I like that tree shot amd PP. A bit crunchier than your PP I am used to, but I like it.

RX100 - played with pp a bit futher than usual. It must be the season.

Thanks, akul. Sad and beautiful it is. Snakes and scorpions make it a creepy place, but to my knowledge they are not in the images.

Although the desert is reclaiming its territory, I am under the impression that they remove the sand from the buildings once every while. They earn quite a bit of money with the permits, which wouldn't sell well if people would not be able to enter the buildings.

Here are some shots of murals from the mission district in San Francisco that I took last winter. If you are in the bay area, I highly recommend the Los Ojos tour (I think I am remembering the name right) of the mission murals. These were all taken with the ZE 21 f/2.8.
