My C/Y 50/1.7 has an uncanny ability to get a bit of background back in situations where I really wouldn't expect it. I figured it was placebo at first, but in the comparisons I've done with my Canon FD 50/1.4 SSC and Nikkor 50/1.8 AI, it seems to not be a figment of my imagination. The G45 doesn't seem to have this magic. How much this matters to me is yet to be seen.


What do you mean by "get a bit of background back"?


i was going to ask the same thing.

That makes three of us. And, arduluth, I'm functionally illiterate, so if you could illustrate your answer, I'd really appreciate it.

Sorry! Background blur, not back. A lot going on at work, my mind must have been elsewhere.

I can see that. I took it out on a hike yesterday and used f/2 quite a bit, more so than I'd feel comfortable doing with any of my other lenses. It's a little harder to focus than my G 28mm with the adapter, but I should have expected that.

I'm also looking forward to some autumn colors - the coolers nights we've had recently has me aching to go backpacking in early October. Nothing beats the beautiful colors and lack of mosquitoes.

Excuse flickr's oversharpening...

Usually I have 3-4 lenses in my bag. Interestingly, the Zeiss C/Y 100mm f3.5 is more often than I expected one of them. It's the lens for occasions when I expect to shot wide angle, but want to have a short and light tele just in case. The Zeiss fills this needs perfectly: it weights 285g only, is very tiny and has excellent IQ. Great lens! A shot from last week:
