Wow, hasn't changed at all since I was there in the late 80's. Nice capture.

Thanks! Out of interest, do you have any photos from there still?

My mother may still have them, I however don't. Back then I was shooting Pentax and Fuji (film and camera). I had a house fire 7 years ago and lost all my prints and negatives.

Fantastic shot above, Carsten! Great detail in both the shadows and highlights...How do you do that?? Love the composition, too.
I just got the A7, so I'm very curious to see how they fair together! but for now...just my 1D4
A few more from the CY 35-70.
Thanks for looking,
Gregg

Thanks Gregg. I exposed for enough detail in the highlights, and then raised the shadows, pretty simple with enough DR.

Paired the A7 with the CY 35-70 today. Another great combo. The 35-70 is such a fantastic lens! And I love the macro feature!

Beautiful Gregg. That green stuff reminds me of spring. I am tempted to get the CY35-70. The excellent CY28-85 felt absolutely ok on the 5D2 but on the A7 it kind of grows further in all directions making me value the 28-34mm range less. Which is why I bought it in the first place. And at 28mm it (full protrusion) it takes the appearance of a monstrous tele though it's the opposite... :-)

I've shelved the idea of the native Zeiss 24-70 and in while in wait for a FE 16-35 this could be something. What's the bad/weak points?

^^^^Hi Wilhelm...I loved the 28-85 I had, too! But, like you said, it was(is) very big! But image quality was stellar, as is the 35-70! Haven't had too much time with it, yet, although I did shoot some over teh weekend(1D4), and then a few shots yesterday with the A7(above). It has incredible POP and shallow DoF for a 3.4 lens! I think the pop is second only to my R 90 Cron! As far as weakness goes, I think the only thing I can think of, is it can be hard to focus at 35mm(as was the 28-85@28), at least for me!! All in all, and as I get to know it better, I think it's just one of those lenses youjust don't get rid of!

Great shot Carsten. I (think) I can see a few of your shoe marks from kicking up dust....
