Great shots Wilhelm, Phil, and Ronny (most dramatic flowers!).

Very Nice Ullf, second one is my favorite.
Wilhelm, nice winter light. Btw, looks like your sensor needs a cleaning.
Samuli, that new 135 sure looks good to me.
Luka, I like your third shot best.
Toothwalker, third one is my favorite but for my taste it would be better if you clone out the wheel in the top right corner.
Dramatic looking flowers Ronny!
Phil, very nice colors.

Wilhelm, you had dust on your sensor when you took the winter pictures, there is function in Lightroom and Aperture to clone it out Liked the 3rd shot, fence working as leading line and verticals being vertical.

Toothwalker, liked the leaning building one.

Ronny, great usage of light, thou I would have enjoy it more without the weird glow caused by enhancing backlight effect on the first photo.

Akul, I like the "geology" of your shooting location - can you PM me longitude and latitude of your usual shooting location [I would assume your earlier posts are from this location as well] (or Googlemaps link). Liked those erratic rocks (not sure if that is the correct word in English, other "word" dictionaty gave me wasn't so short: "large piece of rock that has been relocated by glacial ice"). Liked the last one best, would have liked the 3rd but somebody has drawn arrow to the rock, really annoying to paint rocks like this...

Phil, enjoyed both of your nightscapes. Did you get vertical verticals just by cropping or did you need to correct in post processing?

Electric bike - cool.

have been bicycling to and from work few years, normal bike would do for half year, but when there is +10cm (+4") snow electric bike makes going work enjoyable...

Our tastes are perhaps different, but not concerning the beautiful light you had in Istanbul.

dubaiphil: Wonderful nightscapes.

Thank you Ronny, Jochen, Samuli,

Jochen - Great shot of mosque. Hagia Sophia ? Very nice composition.

Samuli - Really loving your downed tree shots. #5 and #7 are my particular favorites.

Yes it is the same location as the recent one. It is from Harriman State Park in New York. This particular location is becoming my favorite, it is a few hour hike from nearby trail heads. A lot of 'view points' in this park has similar geological featuers.

https://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&q=harriman+state+park&fb=1&gl=us&hq=harriman+state+park&hnear=harriman+state+park&cid=0,0,4955857095859275826&ei=OL-JUcnKJqeF0QGCgoFg&ved=0CIgBEPwSMAQ

Those rocks, I guess one can call them 'boulder'. NY along hudson river has a lot of rock formation like this. And getting hit by Hurricane two years in a row, a lot of damage was done to the forest. As a lot of tree roots are shallow due to the rock under them.

The arrow you see on the rock is the trail marker for hikers. Often, when there are no trees, they use paint like those. Not so great for photos, but also I am relying on them to find the way as well.

Comparison picture between MP 2/100 and AS 2/135 @f2
I was curious how both perform in a side by side comparison.

The 2/135 is here at MFD.
Handheld picture, slightly cropped and sharpened. No other PP.

They look very very similar ... or am I missing something

Wow! I agree! They look almost identical, but I must admit the 135/2 is cleaner (lack of CA) and seems to have marginally better color, but the 100/2 seems to have smoother bokeh, at least in this particular case. But I must wonder if I can justify adding the 135/2 if I already own 100/2? Other than to marvel at 135's beautiful physique :-) I'll bet the difference could be a lot more dramatic in a more demanding scenario, there have been times where 100/2's CA has driven me nuts. Thanks for the photos photoe!

Somehow I like this uncropped better. I guess it allows for the full depth effect. Across the board I'm seeing the very beautiful element of color rendition making the 135/2 a terrific lens. This is something you notice more over time, especially in low light and with unusual colors. It's a bit more subtle than putting things in high contrast situations (which I generally don't like to begin with) and then hunting for the green, violet or purple fringes.

I still love my old workhorse 100/2, but then its near macro range gives me something else all together. Some of us pray to Zeiss for a 100/2 APO true 1:1 macro. Would be expensive, no doubt. But if they could engineer it, I'd buy it.

They look very similar, if you don't look too close.

kiddik you are right about smoother bokeh, better color and lack of CA.
If you take a very close look also better resolution.

OK. This implies they are 'identical' if you look at a 'print'.
