Ronny: You win.. Btw, why 28/2.8 and not 28/2 if I may ask?
Sculptormic: I suppose those work like magnet on the tourists.. I only went to coffee shop day before leaving since your mayor was going to pass the "Residents Only" law.
My main attraction was fallafels, shwarma, kebabs and sallad bars - I can't get that stuff in the land of raw fish..

Probably the minimum focusing distance (20cm on f2.8 ai-s and 25cm on f2) and the weight

OK, Ronny! I am over here too, as my recent purchase of a 35/2 (or should I say 2/35) warrants!

Still doing a comparison between the Zeiss, my Nikon 35 1.4 AI-s, and my Sigma Art.

Now I am wondering what second Zeiss to get for my D800? If I could only have one more? Right now it is a toss between the 21, the 85, and the 100. For the 21, I seldom do landscape, but that lens could be used for more. Same with the 85 and portraits, and the 100 and macro. Don't do any of them!

So the question is, what lens would most compliment the 35? I am leaning towards the 85, as I think the Zeiss 100 would be hard keep still hand held. I pretty much venture out with either the Nikon 35 1.4 and 85 1.4 AI-s, or the sigma and the Nikon 85 1.8G. I am comfortable taking these two focal lengths, and maybe throwing in a 20mm 3.5...

At this rate, I will soon be able to post lens photos on these forums!

Hmm tough choice .. 85 p is a little harder to focus with my opinion than 100MP especially at 1.4 to 2.0 (little focus shift ...nothing remarkable) and 100MP is not especially difficult to keep still and is quite easy to focus
But I love both .. and they draw different each other
Many here like 50 1.4 planar might be an option?
21mm is very good and as you say it can be used for much more than landscapes ..
I really do not know what I would choose .. If I not have been shooting macro, I probably would have skipped 100MP and maybe instead taken a 135 f2 sonnar?
Did you become wiser

Ronny - Love the windmill shot. Great atmosphere
Alkanphel - Very nice. Strong composition with the roofs.
Z- great shot

Sky was beautiful. I exposed to 'left', in other words, exposed for the cloud and lifted shadow on this one as experiment.
ZF.2 35/2

Great capture!
Ronny, I had to check the date of this shot as I don't think September can be that cold even in Sweden.

Edit; just noticed your capture

There's outstanding work in this thread as always. People are quick to complement the Zeiss lenses, but truly this thread is an exhibition of photographer's ability.

I haven't posted here in quite a while, but wanted to share a waterfall from yesterday taken in northwestern Illinois with the 50 ZE Planar.
