To all of you, many thanks for your comments!

Samuli, I will make a deliberate attempt to get to the bottom of this focus shift and report back.

Burningheart, you have a point. Looking at Samuli's diagrams, I am not sure that I need the 100mm focal length, but if my priority is to acculate lenses that give me "Wow!" shots irrespective of focal length, then it could be. But then the same logic makes a compelling case for the brilliant Voigtl�nder 125 APO...

Calvininjax, this church is the �glise de Saint Germain en Laye, a XIXth century building on a plan by classic (150 years earlier) architect Jules Hardoin-Mansart, who, among many other splendid buildings designed the church of Les Invalides in Paris.

Another shot from this morning, a simple stone bench. The lens wanted to show it isn't really that bad at close quarters. You are going to laugh, but I have been trying for quite a while to make a picture of a bench of this type, and failing time after time...

thx all - we were walking on the valley floor - came out of the trees and saw that picture - perfect for the 50mm - more luck than skill, but the Zeiss ZE certainly got the detail and the color that I wanted - the picture above is basically untouched except for a little sharpening.

Printed it 2'x3' and looks just as good.

Nice shot and lighting Phillipe on the door shot!
I don't think the door shot at f6.3 would be any better with the 100 MP but the bench shot at f3.5 would probably be sharper with the 100 MP.

Still too cold to go out with camera! I took several flower shots inside with the 100 f2 ZE macro planar. The second is a major crop from the right side of the first picture.

Lovely shots, Mike K and Jeffrey!
Mike Lucas, the amount of detail you have on that shot when viewed in original size plus magnifying glass is breathtaking

I really like it, prashant, though I guess I see a red cast in the pic. I played with it a bit, and tis confirms my feeling.

Mike, nice Crissy Field shot. Perfect set up for the 21, and you nailed it. The edge to edge sharpens pays off in a shot like that, where significant areas of interest are off center. The lighting was just right on the GG bridge.

shot this one yesterday. very top of a tree shot in portrait orientation with a ze21. Almost a 100% crop (say 66%). From the very top of the frame.
