Jim - Thank you for the 'disection' Corners are not bad imho. You are making jealous with the summer looking shots though!

Ronny - Great shots. Love the color. Second one, somehow I like even better.

Here's a shot I wouldn't normally take due to the the back lighting and the building being almost completely in shadow.

I didn't get the D800e because I'm screaming for extended DR, but here (a quick grab shot -- my next to last shot, on the way back to the car and low parking meter!) it certainly shows a major improvement by getting a little more detail in shadows (drive-in garage, next door entry). It's not completely without cost -- some added noise in the raised areas, but nothing that jumps out or looks overdone in PP.

Not a perfect photo, but so much better than the old Film Days of trying to deal with backlit subjects when there was no other opportunity for a shot. Long live digital imaging!

Also, mounted it yesterday using simple Fotodiox non-Pro Nikon-EF adapter to my Canon 1Ds3 to see how it would work. Turns out: great! Very banal shot of the backyard patio with some highlight and shadow correction, but otherwise, pretty much my usual adjustments in LR. Very sharp at f/11, as we would hope. Shows good tonal range. Note: little color ghosts on palm trunk and center foreground shadow -- good flare control, no veiling evident. I'm anxious to do some A-B comparing between the Canon and Nikon bodies. Yes, folks, this is the dead of winter here in SoCal -- could barely wear long pants outside.

Super, Ronny!

This image is not nearly as good, and not even worth posting if it weren't for the illusion. If I hadn't taken the picture myself, I would probably find it hard to believe that the photographer is pointing the camera up here and not down.

Jim, Nice - The Zeiss 135 APO is probably my next lens.

Thanks m.sommers & Moose.

Ronny & Tooth - Great as always!

Love those Otus photographs Leon. I know you're well pleased with that lens. Hopefully it will be in the arsenal soon. I'm holding off until I see what Canon announces for their new camera offerings this year. I wish I had local access to cityscapes like you. Beautiful!

You won't be disappointed with the 135 Moose! Great shot with the 21. I've owned that lens three different times and it never let me down. I'll probably own it a fourth in the near future.

Toothwalker - That perspective is so convincingly 'looking down' Reminds me photography is a tool of abstraction, not a verbatum recording device.

leonasj - Impressive shot that really showcase the strength of Otus and 810.

Ronny - Great work. Foreground is lit in such a mysterious manner it feels like I am looking at a scene from a movie.

I love Zeiss, they're all I own! Great thread, but somehow I don't think I'm going to get through all 1008 pages!

Awesome images that I've looked at so far. Here's some of my favorites, all shot on a 5dMKII

I don't recall noticing the illusion while I was standing there, but when I browsed the images in the evening it was there. It was very strong already on the small camera LCD.

I did some googling for other images of the place, and found this page:

The second and third image provide a different perspective, with people included.

I still wonder how I managed to make these climbs with camera bag and tripod ...
