I'm always humbled when I look through this thread.. guess I've been an occasional lurker for a long time =) in looking over the last few pages of this thread, the contributions from kururu & Peberhardt were particularly inspiring.

some really, really lovely work!

Once I have asked Zeiss about 'font' they use on the ZE/Zf.2 line. This was their response:
This engraving is made with a vintage mechanical engraving machine, which cannot handle any fonts that are used on computers today.
There is a typeface family that comes very close to this: Trebuchet (Trébuchet=type of a catapult). Designer ( Vincent Connare) was also influenced by US Highway signing system when making Microsoft's Trebuchet MS typeface. It has a little Zeiss style in it..
It might be interesting for someone. Personally I like it very much. It comes with Windows.
EDIT: it would be nice if Zeiss creates their own typeface. Mechanical, vintage and rounded.

100 MP ZE:

You're welcome!
Official Zeiss site uses Frutiger Next and it looks very zeissy, but it is not free, I think.

Forms and shadows (gestalt und schatten) 1.4/35 Distagon and 2/100MP ZE.
I used custom sharpening to stress out the specular reflections on the road. Contrasting dark and white, and feeling of rough on the left (luggage) and soft on the right (jeep).

ƒ/5 1/800 ISO 100 100mm


Something I learned yesterday..
...I always wondered about shooting the steam, because lens attracts moisture, and becomes fogged in a second. I read e-mail discussion (cml-glass) about the same topic yesterday, (I am subscribed to cinematography.net mailing lists) and they described that they either tend to fake it (oil spray with helium?) or use hair dryers pointed at the lens all the time to keep it dry. Other gadget they use is *spintec, a spinning glass in front of the lens that makes raindrops and snow go away, and it runs on batteries.

johnahill, I like the flower portraits with the 25/2.8, well done!
I consider it an emergency macro lens
