akul

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.

Hi,
Just a quick 35/2 @ 5.6 on a d700. Checking out equipment for an upcoming trip.

Great mushroom shots!

Did you use a tripod? I'm wondering if any sort of practical focus-stacking can be done with handheld shots.

Thank you Taylor (& Ronny).

Tripod definitely in my case. (& off camera fill flash w/ soft box). I have seen some handheld stacking in static scenes that looked good, but in better light & with much higher shutter speeds than I use for mushroom work. Would depend on your subject & conditions, I think.

I have a few shots with the 35/1.4 on an A7 over in the Zeiss thread. It works well, and mostly I don't need to zoom in, unless I stop down.

Mataz, I like your horse series a lot, as akul says, very 3-D,
Oldraven, those fungi are perfect!
Ronny, your maple leaves are so 100MP, I like this picture, and another adorable dog shot!
Toothwalker, impressive portrait, except for those traces of snot or whatever this is - they kind of kick me out of adoration and make me want to clean up that kid
nibutto, I like the 3rd and the last one

some from todays walk with the ZF 50 MP all @ f 2.0

It is sand. She is a child of the desert. If you want to give way to your motherly or fatherly impulses, I have a better candidate for you:

Thanks! I love this lens for landscape, aside from a little flare in tough lighting situations it does so well. It'll probably be on one of my cameras 90% of the time whenever I'm outside.

Knowing it is sand makes it much better, no impuls any more
in the last one the snot is part of the picture, doesn't take me out of it.
great pictures in all cases!

Very nice and clear user222
