Yeah Cal - give me "my" lens back!! Glad to hear you are enjoying it. It was one of my most favorite (and underrated) lenses.

I have the 21 and 100MP in ZF mounts and I am blown away by the images. The 21 is very easy to use but I am still learning to focus the 100MP properly. The focus confirmation is not very accurate and I have no way of doing AF fine tune for it.

I am now also considering to add a third and final zeiss lens to fit in between but I am rather undecided. I just sold my 35G not being completely satisfied with it. Thinking of the Sigma 35mm or 35/2 ZF and also the 28/2 and 50MP. I would like to hear what the guys here have to say

The ZF 100MP is indeed great. It's wonderful on a camera like the Nex-7 which has focus peaking! :-) Though I still miss occasionally.

Nice landscapes, Ronny, I can feel the coldness through them!

A few more from the ZE 100MP, as I walked around the Botanic Gardens.

Finally bought a ZE 21 after renting one often and see-sawing back and forth about it or a 2/25. Great deal emerged, and I couldn't be happier. My first set from it.

Congrats Grenache, you're gonna love that lens!

Thank you everyone that responded to my thread about focal lengths a while ago. I ended up taking the 21, 35 and 50 to my trip and I had tons of fun with it. I made a decision to switch to a different system so this is probably going to be my last set from these lenses, I know I'll miss them very much . Anyway here are some pics from the trip, I'm not going to flood the thread but you can see some more in my flickr set.

Beginner question here: How hard is it to manual focus these lenses on either a Nikon D600 or D800? Are the screens good enough for reliable focus or is your hit rate much lower than you would like?

Great images here.

If you get your camera and lens calibrated focusing is easy once you're used to it. You don't even need to look at focus confirmation for most scenes.

My hit rate with D800 and a series of ZF.2 lenses is decent, but lower than I would like. Part of the problem is surely the focus shift that several of my lenses have. When it is really crucial to nail the focus, I re-focus until I get it right, or use live view.

Rirakuma, Absolutely beautiful images, thanks for share. Since you mention it, I wonder what system could be better you switched to replace D800 and ZF?

Zhangyue, thank you for the kind comment. I'm switching to Leica, its not necessarily better but I like to shoot discreet and there are often times I feel that the D800 is too intrusive. I did consider using Zeiss lenses on the Leica but I wasn't sure if I like the fingerprint on the ZM lineup, I felt that the ZF/ZE lineup had a more pleasing rendering compared to the ZM although I could be very wrong. I will miss the Zeiss pop though, here's one with a bit of pop from the 35/2.
