Happy New Year everyone !

Johnahill - Superb architecture works. My favs are, but not limited to the Underwriter building, and Lloyds of London reflection shots.

Bob - Wonderful use of 35 1.4. Just love that rendition. Also interesting to see how newspaper boxes look much nicer and less abused in MN. Beautiful church interior HDR stich works.

Grenache- Wow, beautiful beach series. Love the almost painting like rendition of beautiful clouds on #1 and #3.

Taking Bob's cue, continuing with 35 1.4 WO

Luka - Love that first one especially!
Bruni - That 35/2 is no slouch. I often wish I still owned mine. It has it's own unique rendering.

A few more with the 35/1.4 WO

I was contacted about my thoughts on the Zeiss 15/2.8 Distagon. I love this lens so I thought I would post a few more examples.

Killing me Bob! ... Fantastic!!

With supply very limited I may pull the trigger on the one I found but common sense tells me to sleep on it. Especially with my LE / filter concerns too. Why would you put a fixed hood on that lens unless you have you're wanting to force people to buy your ND and CP filters too. I can only imagine what a Zeiss CP or ND filter would run. *mind blown*

Thanks again for posting these and all your help.

bruni - Nice shot! 2/35 is a superb lens. Also great is its smaller size and weight compare to its 1.4 sibling.

Bob - you are on a roll ! No parking shot with 35 1.4 and the abandoned bike with 15 2.8 are my favs. Oh, and the escalator shot.

Does anybody else (than myself) play the "brand colour game"? I use to browse, once in a while, through the last dozen of pages and try to guess whether the pics are made with Canon or Nikon, without looking at the poster and additional infos. A (longer) while ago Canon were about 80-90% of all shots here, meanwhile it is down to maybe 60:40 or almost half half.

Anyway, I have a success rate of roughly 90%. Sometimes I rate a Nikon for Canon, almost never the other way round.
Also the latest models of both (d800 and 5dIII) have a different colour from the older models (d700 and 5dII).
The colour palette I seem to like most is the one of the 5d II. I don't tend to like the Nikons, specially the d700. I switched from 5dII to d700 *and back* twice. d700 being the much better camera, but Nikon colour remaining a frustration for me. On both I use mainly my Zeiss ZF lenses (with adapter on the Canon). I never understand when people say this is a non- issue because once mastering the workflow you can make any camera look the way you like. At least most people can't do it then because Canon tends to look Canon, Nikon like Nikon.

The best color I have seen in this thread BTW was with Fujis EX-1 or whatever it is called, probably Zeiss adapted. Fuji masters colour better than anybody else.

Cheers
Bernie

One from today with the 5D-II and 35 f/2 shot at f/2.

This one gives a hint of 3D on my computer. I wonder if it will survive the internet posting process.

Akul, I keep coming back to your noise maker shot. It has a very dreamy quality that is perfect for the party atmosphere of New Years.

Picture this, I really like it! The wideangle perspective works well.

Grenache - superb beach series.
Bob - wonderful interiors.
Hauxon - beautiful shot.
Darwin - a touch of 3D for me too.
Picture This - that reminds me of Africa. Nice shot.

Off to NZ in 6 weeks so instead of 99% birds I'll be putting the 35 and 21 to good use (for close ups of the Kiwi ) !

Here's wishing a wonderful 2013 to all here !

Very nice.

I am looking for a soft lens pouch for this lens. Do you (or someone else) has a suggestion?

It would be nice if Zeiss came with pouches for its lenses.

Great images everybody!

So I decided to get VSCO film presets and here is first set processed (50P & 5dMKII):



































































Cheers,
Marty

This series is absolutely outstanding Marty! Are you processing in LR with custom presets? I really like the tone in all of them. Feel free to share a few with a friend... Happy New Year!

EDIT: Just read your description about the presets. I'm getting old.

EDIT 2: So which one version / set did you purchase?
