Carl Zeiss S-Planar T* 2.8/60 close to 1:1 (first one) and about 1:2 (last two) with Carl Zeiss T* Polarizer. I'm not huge fan of this big magnification because the DOF is way to shallow for what I would like to present:


You should try focus stacking. Not the most fun job to do in the freezing cold though.

Tried it once, technique requires very heavy duty tripod and static subject. I doubt I ever try it again, also don't have software for it - or patience to sit extra minutes at computer.

Samuli well, diffraction really isnt visible at this size. What is visible is very nice colors and equally nicely captured frost. Like third most..

Bit suprised tho, diffraction at f11? Thought thats issue only after f16.


At the webthumbnail size the diffraction's effect to sharpness is most likely not visible, but images even this size photos tend to become dull, "washed out" and micro contrast just isn't there. I have been able to make this better with deconvolution sharpening, could maybe also try to these macro images.

Also when lens is set to f/11 and you have 1:1 magnification the actual aperture is more like f/22 (there is formula to calculate it but don't have time now to google formula and calculate it).


Wide open this time:
Contax S-Planar T* 2.8/60 @ f/2.8, 1/4s, ISO 100, Zeiss T* polarizer


Contax S-Planar T* 2.8/60 @ f/2.8, 0.4s, ISO 100, Zeiss T* polarizer

Very nice, I love the way that lens renders. Even though I own the ZF.2 100/2 and 35/1.4, I suspect I will end up with the Contax versions anyway...

Thanks Carsten. The Contax 100 Planar is such a joy to use. The barrel action is so smooth and precise... by far my favorite Alt lens.

A few more...

Samuli - Beautiful rendering from Contax 60 2.8 Boke on the second shot looks like it could get nervous, but is not. Structured but not busy.

And, the shot of the b/w was at the wide end at10.4mm ( Vario Sonnar 10.4-37.1mm ) f/3.2

Kokusai - Nice series.

Akul - Thanks. Nice shot with the RX100. It's such a capable camera.

JayT - Beautifully captured! Here in Southern Cali, I'm still waiting for the leaves to change colors.

Continuing the series with the CY 100 Planar...

Kokusai - Nice portraits. Last one especially, nice soft lighting.

RX100 is certainly a nice capable camera and a good all round performer. I wish lens had a little more resolution at edges then it would have been perfect.

Kokusai - Love Contax 100mm, my favorites are those in which you have allowed some roughness and texture to bokeh. My favorite was the last image on 2nd post.

Hmmm, did you just describe "signature" of planar bokeh at least when it's not going crazy
