Thanks, carstenw and Samuli!

I hadn't heard about the different bokeh with the 50mm MP so I'll have to give it more thought. I agree about 35 and 50 being so close that I'm not sure it would be wise to get both.

I still don't really understand the focus shift problem with the 85mm f1.4. If I'm focusing and shooting at 1.4, and it looks sharp, why would the focus shift? It's already wide open.



You're right, it wouldn't shift unless you stop down. I know the 50/1.4 is also terrible at this, so much so that depending on the distance to subject I usually avoid f2-f4 all together.

Also Samuli Vahonen; those boat photos (especially the first and last) are inspiring!

Sorry for the multiple posts in a row.

Johnny B Goode - Beautiful shots. First and the last are my favorite

Samuli - The last shot is simply amazing. Love the 'being there' feeling I get from the shot.

35/2

There won't be focus shift shooting wide open, only if you focus wide open and then stop down (as modern cameras do) to f/2 or f/2.8. I think already f/4 is okay (enough increase in the depth of field to bring sharp focus back inside the range), but I am not certain, and it might be f/5.6.

Hey Guys,

I have a question, those "Sony FE Zeiss" lenses are they true ZEISS? I meant true being all made and designed by ZEISS company?

or

Sony designed it according to Zeiss specs then licensed the name Zeiss?

Machines make lenses according to a design. If machines are owned by Zeiss or Manufacturer X makes no difference as long as specifications (design and quality control) defined by Zeiss are carried out.


Sony designed it according to Zeiss specs then licensed the name Zeiss?


This question makes no sense. If anything it could be the other way around. Zeiss is the Optics Company, not Sony.

Yes. Many many times. Nowadays, the big cities are air transit points for us. We prefer the quiet, easy going ways.
And landing in Munich/Zurich/Geneva affords us easy access to some wonderful nature areas and lovely towns and villages. And one can never really tire of the route des vines!!!

Best regards.
