28/2 is sorta more "street/closeup" kind of lens, not really landscape one..

Just bought the 21mm to cover small concert venues. Absolutely hated it for the first 2 weeks I owned it but forced myself to use it on a couple of walks with friends. It has definitely grown on me and I wont be selling it for a little while. Still in search of the perfect 50mm low light lens though. Can't wait to stick a CP filter on this thing to bring out greens and reduce the abundant amount of plant glare in photos.








not the greatest photo ever but I think it shows some of the potential for this lens to really create a dynamic image:

Congrats on your 21mm. Its such an amazing lens, great for both close portraits and wide landscapes.

I am really struggling to take portraits with it that I am comfortable with presenting to clients or news organizations due to the perspective distortion. Do you have any tips on how to approach a portrait photo with a lens this wide? Until 3 weeks ago, I hadn't owned a lens wider than my 35L for 2 years, and even then the widest I ever owned was a 24mm for critical work. At one point I had a 14 but that was more for fun than anything. Needless to say, I am not well acquainted with the wide lenses purely because I have never really needed one until now.

Hmm that's interesting, my experience was actually the opposite when it came to distortion. I felt that the Zeiss 21mm handled it much better than most other 21mm variants. Here are a few I've taken with the 21mm, I have more but I didn't upload them all. I guess the only tip I can suggest is to keep your subject somewhat centered or not in extreme corners and sides. Would you happen to have a few samples you can share that you find is unrepresentable due to the distortion? Hope you'll get the hang of it soon, its one of the things I really miss from this lens

Here are just a few people pictures with what I consider some strangeness to them. I guess in hindsight only the one with the longhorn has a significant bit of perspective distortion to it, but there is a good bit of stretching in the legs of the portrait oriented photo at the end.

Tracks? Tract? How much of that is yours, or belongs to your studio? 50% of Fujiyama?
