I spent three days this week photographing some places in central Oregon with a group of six photographers. These two images are the first that I have worked on.

The first image was shot near Service Creek and the second was at the Painted Hills.

It's been a while since I posted anything in here so I'll try and keep up to the high standard of the images in this thread.

The first is one from a couple of years ago with the 21mm Distagon of Bass Harbor Lighthouse in Maine.

The next one is of a Foxglove in my yard from yesterday taken with the 100mm Makro Planar.

This Monarch butterfly had just emerged from her cocoon and was drying her wings.

This request might be a long shot, but I will try. Can someone with a 35mm ZF.2 f2 and a Nikon DF send me an NEF photo taken with this combination? I need it to set a default processing process for DXO Optics and my ZF.1 lens. I used to have the ZF.2, but didn't save any of my NEF files.

Thank you!
Daniel

I prefer this version. While the smooth water look from an ND filter can be very appealing in this case to my eyes its better without it.

Is that a Russian submarine in the background?

great images here...
would like to join with a 28 but I'm torn between ZF and ZM mount.
I would prefer the latter, but how bad is color shift on the a7's? And, it's possible to correct it in batch using lightroom, or have to do one by one?


I haven't tried the ZM on a Sony a7 series camera (one of the few ZMs), but the a7S should have the least color shift problem of the bunch. If it does, the 'Adobe flat field plugin' for Lightroom will resolve the problem, and I believe you can run it in batches. You just need to shoot a few images with a white diffuser over the lens and at a couple aperture settings you're likely to use most, such as wide open and maybe f/8, which the plugin will use to determine the extend of color shift correction (and maybe also vignetting).

I suspect the ZM and ZF 28s could be somewhat different in character, too. The ZM has a good amount of Zeiss pop and is centrally very sharp, but on a Leica M it takes a few stops to really bring up the edges if you're looking for across frame sharpness. Then there's also the question of how much the outer zone will be affected by image degradation due to the camera's sensor stack thickness (which can also affect field curvature). I haven't tried the ZE/ZF version, but from my recollection of Philippe's (philber) comments about it years ago, it seemed to be a bit of an outlier in the lineup (IIRC).

Since I'm posting, here are a few recent shots with the M240 and ZM 50/2 cross-posted from the Leica thread.

Thanks to the rebate, finally decided to pull the trigger on a 135mm f/2 APO. Received it a couple of days ago and hope to play with it more over the weekend. For now, just took a couple of test shots around the house, including one from my favorite subject at home
