Great usage of Distagon T* 2/35 rendering style. Needs quite big size like your 1600px to show it.

Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I'm still hanging around and lurking for the incredible inspiration. I'll hopefully have some photos to contribute soon as I'm coming into my slow season for my "real" job.

Also, I just listed my Zeiss 100 ZF.2 on the Buy / Sell board. Looking to sell or trade for a Zeiss 135 APO.

As always, thanks to everyone for the continued inspiration and knowledge I gain from this awesome thread.

One more from same cliffs at Malta - this time with Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 @ f/5.6, 0.6s, ISO 100, CZ T* polarizer



PS. For size reference: the concrete block on top left corner is about 2 meter/6 feet wide, from sea level (average level) to top of cliffs is 20-30 meters/60-90 feet.

user222 - Nice ever green leaf capture. Baby leaves are very nice.
Rony - Great light
Rodluvan - Very nice composition on the last one.
Samuli - That treacherous water makes me nervous. Great clarity!

It has been a while to shoot with 100P. Here are some tree portraits from Minnewaska SP.

Samuli - I am rather fooled by the photo for the scale, and now I realized it is far larger than I first thought. So, they are rather far away for 50 5.6 to have focus on most eh ? Very cool. ( I imagine it is not a crop. )

Hello
All these shots are from the Zeiss 50mm 1.4 Nikon. I've read that this lens is not designed for close focus, but have never read how close? can anyone tell me please. (rtfm on me I just read the manual, so yeah 17" close focus.


akul thank you. I really love the colors this lens produces.
cyra thank you.
Ronny _Olsson thank you. Always love dog photo's, and yours are awesome.


All at f/5.6

Mataz426 - I only had Contax Planar 50 1.4, so I understand it is slightly different. ( It is a pst tense as it broke, and I will probably buy ZF version now. ) My experience with planar has been that short distance, such as 17" away, can be relatively 'weak' in its rendition, it has a bit of haze in wo especially with bright light. Close down to 4 - 5.6 makes it far better. However, bokeh of further bright lit detailed background when focused close distance, can become a bit busy, and some people do not quite like that. I actually like it very much. Also the extremely shallow DOF in short distance can make focusing rather tricky as well. From mid distance on, say 10' + it focus area increases, and image seems to improve. Other thing is that, WO in bright light, also tends to bring issues, overcast is less problematic. There is a distinctive shift at aound f5.6, when planar gets very sharp with beautiful color rendition, very yummy color. I am quite biased for this lens, as I like its strength as well as it 'weakenesss.

By the way, the last shot is quite stunning. Great light. I hate to use this word, and it is very rare I use such expression, but it is very 3D for me.

Thank you so much for the information. I've only used this lens twice, and the first time the lighting was very difficult but I'm really liking the lens. I just bought the 21mm also, so I'm learning each lens nuances. Editing the photo's can be quite different than my Nikon lenses, and I'm seeing why some people are drawn to Zeiss glass. Did the lens you had require you to shoot a bit under exposed?

CY50 did not work with AE function of D700 unless it was wide open as it was adapted with Leitax mount. So, I never had the 'over' or 'under' exposure issue just like manual focus lens wouldn't have autofocus problem Some ZF lenses present such tendency. My copy of ZF.2 1.4/35 has a tendency to over expose at least 2/3 EV. You may be seeing the similar tendency.

Fungal portraits with the ZE 100MP & 5D2, all from Olympic National Park. The first 2 are three frame focus-stacked to gain sufficient DOF.
