That rocking chair shot literally looks like its floating in its own 3D space. Just wow.

Hi Philber, I have seen very good pictures of you here.
I am thinking of buying the Zeiss 35/2 for my 5DII, what can you say about this set? Can you show here pictures of the Zeiss with the 5DII?
Thank you very much



35ZE on 5DII, taken last night:








Thanks for the pic andrew, is beautiful

That is a fabulous shot, snowboarder.

Rick, the 50/1.4 is definitely worth keeping, particularly in your hands. Super shots of the rocking chair and park bench.

One day, I will figure out where I am going wrong.

Initial impressions are soft when shot wide open but sharpens up nicely past f2. Aside from the initial disappointment with occasional softness at f1.4, I think I will keep this lens.

Lovely shots, Rick, especially if you are only getting acquainted with your ZE 50 f:1.4. Yes it is soft wide open, but it has so many redeeming virtues IMHO...
Also, a number of users have reported that, for some unknown reason, it seems to get better after some use....
At any rate, enjoy, and continue to delight us with your pics.

Several from the 100/2 ZE; the light was horrible w/ a clouded over sky, haze and just bluck... All are f5.6 except for the 3rd which is F2 (taken under the bridge). The sun did break through the clouds for about 30 seconds for the first shot.

Your shots are, as usual, really great, John. But why are the tracks not very straight? Mustache distortion? It also seems that you are putting yourself at risk (pic n2). Stay safe!

Thanks. To be honest, trains are the least of my worries. That's not a very safe part of Dallas to be walking around with a 1Ds3. Today I asked a friend to come along and watch my back while shooting. And sure enough, while we were snapping the pix, two police officers run by us chasing a group of guys. We decided that our next outing will be some abandoned town in the middle of nowhere!

Yeah, every time I think about going to some bad area to shoot some street pictures, I then remember some shooting I have seen on the local news like the 15 yr. boy yesterday who shot an Indian ice cream truck lady that he was trying to rob in Vallejo. Hard to blend in when shooting a 1ds3 in the hood, even if you put black tape on the Canon logo.

The Mrs was in a cooking mood this morning, not sure why... A couple quick pops w/ the 100/2 ZE -





Part of the B&W processing involves lessening the contrast - which tends to zap the 3D feel to a degree.

John, nice B&W work on last page, I really liked how smooth images looked.

Snowboarder, first image is very nice, nice separation even shoot from long distance.

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28 @ f/2, 1/40s, ISO 400 - excellent handhold indoor lens since it's quite OK already at wide open:

(for the non-Finnish speaking the faint text in door says "mens", since it's inverted from mirror it's again readable from left to right, this was kind of the trick of image but don't really open if you don't know Finnish)

Andrew, your pics indicate to me, despite the limitations of Web-based low resolution, that the difference between your 100MP and my 85 Planar is not unlike that between 50MP and 50 Planar f:1.4. Which means that I may have to buy the 100MP and keep my 85, unlike what I had hoped.
