Yum yum. That second one needs a white balance, I think. It looks like the light on the pizza is incandescent, with possibly some outdoor light hitting the back left corner, where I guess you white balanced?


You have a very "sensitive" sense, Carstenw (don't know if I use the right word or not ). There were several incandescent lamps over my head and yes, my back was facing a huge class window and because there was a wooden wall on my right, so it is exactly like you said, the light hit the left corner of the pizza. Didn't notice until reading your feedback. Here is the restaurant



p.s: I am really amazed when I was reading your comments. It seems to me that you was there too

Love that series JochenB. How did you focus?

Thanks.
Rob, all were focused through the viewfinder (precision focusing screen).

Good going, I don't shoot often enough to nail viewfinder focussing well enough, need more practice

I know this is an odd question but do any of you all use the 35 f/2.8? I love my 35 1.4 but saw one at a pawn shop and wondered if anybody liked it.

Anyone know a good place in the US to get an old Rollei 35/1.4 fixed? I am just thinking Keh, are there any Zeiss lens specialists around?

What needs fixing? DIY?

I'm guessing that shows a marked rear element isn't the end of the world?

R. Young,

I slightly bent the aperture pin. Then, removed mount to attach a new adapter that required removing the mount. The screw holes were misaligned and in the process pushed the pin way down. Now, the aperture won't stop down at all. And, started unscrewing rear element with my fingers, couldn't get out very far, till it wouldn't budge, tried to re-screw it with my fingers. Now the rear element is a little misaligned, so lens is a little soft.

Yes, I am technically inclined, but I have no lens tools, and little lens disassembly experience, and I love my Rollei too much to become a Frankenstein test subject.

I know, it was fine, I shouldn't have messed with it, but I wasn't satisfied with how slightly loose it was. But, in hindsight, my pictures were fine from it...I have been kicking myself since...

Sorry to hear it. I have been kicking myself about marking the rear element of mine. It was near mint when I bought it but my 5d2 mirror has been chipping away at it. Good luck getting yours sorted

Very nice Rob. Is it a stitch or a single shot ?
