RX1, ISO100 1/1000s f/2.0

Love the Zeiss '3D pop' in good natural light.

Not quite the 3D I have seen with other Zeiss, but the old Jena Biogon 2/58 can do it too.

Played with this one a bit in post, my wife and one of her signature looks.

Here is a question for you all:
How is the performance of the C/Y 50/1.4 Planar wide open and what is the main difference between it and the newer ZF/ZE versions?


Although the designs are similar, the newer version had to be tweaked to accommodate environmentally friendly glass types. As a result, is has more spherical aberration and a softer image at full aperture. Stopped down, both lenses are very good and difficult to tell apart.

Here is a comparison with two samples of the YC, and one ZE sample. Center crops at full aperture, a faraway and a nearby subject.

Who says the 50/1.4 Planar has good boke?

some quite funky background with the ZF 50







Toothwalker, wonderful shot!

that looks better Carsten, the 50P seems to clear up a bit at 2.0 - Samuli said it before...
I am not sure I like it so much for natural background like shrubs and trees.

Happy new year everybody!

Hmm, you appear to have very bad luck with that lens I have never seen such boke from it, although I occasionally get something a bit less calm than I like.

Carsten, it seems to be the combination of backlight and structure

Kokusai, impressive colours
