Thanks Leady!

What's your current standpoint, do you find the SB so good that you're quitting the FF trail? I've seen your crop comparisons with FF and those are impressive for sure. Personally I love the sensor in the NEX but hate the handling which is a main reason for waiting to convert to mirrorless/small.

No,

at bright light the 5D Mark II View finder is better and also the rendering seems to be a bit softer..

5D Mark2 has a faster response ...

...not sure, SB is nice as well ....

however, my Distagon 35mm 1.4 HFT gets damage by 5D MarkII and the new planar 50mm 1.4 HFT would even break the mirror. Also the FD 85L 1.2 cannot be used on Canon, so.... there are already 3 lenses, which have to be used on speed booster.

and the nex-6 is so sweet and small

Perfect exposure, Leady!
It's not from 'Boogie Nights' right?

Great work with the 1,4/35 everybody!

Time to post something in this thread too, with my homely version of Leady´s sleeping beauty above:

you know i could almost shoot 80% of my photos with just the zeiss 35 1.4...its just that versatile...i could probably get away with a 35/85 combo on FF and shoot like 95% of my photos.

yes,

after some time, when you look on the fotos you did shoot, you notice, that the best were 35mm 1.4

here with SB and NEX-6:







The NEX6 and SB has the huge advantages, that
- you do not get a dirty sensor, when you switch lenses
- perfect focussing if enough time

Typical Zeiss 35 picture, I think. Old Mini.

I have special memories of this car, because my parents went with it from Amsterdam to Afganistan in 1972. Inspired by my trip to the East in 1970.

Quiet an accomplishment considering the awfull roads at the time.

What post did you do to give that lack of depth of field? Surely thats not just the 1.4 aperture?

It looks normal, I think, if you factor in the added aberrations in the outer regions, from the Speedbooster.

No special PP.
I used a Fader, to use the lens wide open. Otherwise it would be completly overexposed.
