The performance you are getting from yours is excellent. I wouldn't bother with upgrading to the rubber ring version. Enjoy!

Thank you Paul. I am happy with the lens. I brought this, the Oly 18 and the 85L on my trip. Used the Zeiss for 95 % of the photos. The light levels are really low at the moment. A

Your first shot is absolutely spectacular Anden, congratulations! Could you give the EXIF too? Was it handheld?

The 35L is probably the more convenient lens but due to the massive price difference the choice was easy for me.



Please explain your statement. Examples of the Rollei Zeiss 35/1.4 that I've seen for sale are priced very close to the new price of a 35L.

I know they are pricey but I managed to get a great deal for a lens in great condition. I was about to buy a 35L and the I stumbled upon this deal. I am one happy camper :-)

Went out really early today. 8 F and sea breeze. I am still very very cold.

The Rollei had to work hard.

Anden, your style is fantastic. To the point of making me believe that your third shot is actually Swedish winter :-)

is the Contax 1.4/35 and this Rollei 1.4/35 optically the same thing?

+1 great shots, all of them.
I especially like portraits at 35mm. They capture more of the subject, and don't tune out the background as much as a 85/100mm lens. Very inspiring.
