+1 That 4th one might be my favorite from your whole series Bob. Nice work.

I haven't been around much lately, but it's great to see that you guys are still going and that the inspiration is still there. It's interesting to see especially Bob Israel's architectural work as the curvature of almost all Zeiss lenses except for 1.4/85 (and almost 1.4/50 and 1.4/35) is a bit bothersome for this kind of work imo. If the 15mm photos are not corrected I'm very impressed by it.

Here are a few
28D @ f/2


50P @2


28D @11


If I could make a request, it would be to see more 2.8/25 photos.

I can tell you that I haven't done any more correction other than to check the lens profile box in Lightroom v4. Other than that, I might make a vertical adjustment if I missed my alignment in the first place but that's all. I haven't found the need to go further.

Stunning work yourself. I love the first two images . . . the clarity is amazing.

Ok, thanks. I don't use LR, I only use CNX2 and PS. Have you downloaded profile for each lens to LR, or how does it figure out the distortion?

The profiles are built into Lightroom. This is why they come out with periodic upgrades within a version . . . to add cameras and lenses to the profiles. Legacy lenses are typically not included. So, won't find corrections for the CY85 or other CY lenses, for example.

Great shots everyone. Another hit-n-run by me today. So sorry but "life" has me running wild. It's driving me crazy as I want to spend some time with this amazing lens. Soon...

Great series Bob! I haven't seen the old Bellsouth logo in a long time. It is Bellsouth, correct?
Truly enjoying my Zeiss 100mm. The 15mm will be in my future, no doubt.


This building is old enough that it is probably Ma Bell before the split. The building is in Minneapolis, MN.



I believe the Bell logo is post 1983 that's when Judge Green broke up the Bell System
I worked under that Bell Logo for 38 years Southern Bell, Bell South, and The hated ATT
All in Florida. The color Scheme of Blue /Yellow was after 1983 The early Colors were a drab Green and Gold when it was the Bell System including Bell Labs, Western Electric, and the early ATT (good guys)
Excellent Series Bob, Hope you all don't mind the history lesson

By the way I grew up in Knoxville Go Vols!

Yes, thanks Reagan. Great info! Great to hear you're a Knoxville boy too! Click on my flickr link and look at the photo in my stream just before the one I posted here. Hopefully, you'll appreciate it and make you a little home-sick too. Do you ever make it back this way?

Edit: Go Vols!

Left Knoxville in 1966 used to go often but most of my family moved to Kentucky (They like bourbon better than whiskey) So only go about every 5 years or so.

I haven't posted to this thread for awhile, and it again proves to be one amazing collection of work. Inspiring photos everyone! Here are a few I've recently processed from the ZF.2 35/1.4.

Bob - great series with inspiring Distagon 15mm shots. I am looking forward to using it for interiors like these.

One Distagon 15mm shot out my office window:
