Coincidentally, I took the same set of lenses for our trip last week; however, 50MP didn't get any use. Similarly, while visiting Prague last summer 21/2.8 ZF was mounted most of the time. 50MP purchased for that trip was great for food close-ups though.

Few hand-held shots from Cabo San Lucas:

Awesome pics Jako , like you the 50mp didnt get used much on my trip either. Not that its bad or anything but I'm just pushing myself to use the 35 more often.

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.


Great set above! If you're switching to Leica, be sure to post some images in the M8/M9 thread. While there, check out what Edward is posting with the ZM 18, 25, 35/2, 50/2 and 85/4.

I started with ZM on my M9 and definitely like the Zeiss contrast/clarity. Not sure if the lenses share the 3D pop of some of the ZE/ZF... but then there is also the whole range of Leica glass to consider. I thought it was overrated, and maybe it is for some, but there is something to it, just as there is something to Zeiss glass. Of the Leica M lenses I've tried, I'd say the 28/2 and new 21/3.4 have a certain contrast/vibrancy to them that hints at Zeiss.
