These are experimental shots using the Fotodiox Macro Focusing Helicoid Adapter with the Zeiss C Biogen 2.8/35 lens in macro mode. The aperture was between F8 and 11 and the Macro was set at maximum magnification.

ebookman, I like what I see from your C-Biogon 35. So crisp. I think I like it even better then the the Biogon 35/2. And smaller too. A gem, I think.

Thanks for your comment. I feel the same way. The size is ideal and the lens is incredibly sharp. It really shows what it can do in macro mode. The difficulty in these shots with the macro adapter is, of course, critical focus. I can't really be sure of critical focus until PP. I might solve the problem with a little patience using a tripod and the magnified view which is almost impossible for me to use hand-held.

Yet another great page. Despite all the criticism, I've seen plenty of good shots from the SEL3035 macro!

Two more from Rome, the last one at ISO 3200 and I am quite impressed with what the NEX 6 delivers at that ISO.

Yet more CV15: it's been pretty hard to take this lens off my camera lately.

ebookman, your lovely shots with the C-Biogon remind me of how much I loved that lens. It having been stolen from me, and based on the very positive opinion of some learned members here, I bought the larger f:2.0 sibling. I have never however developped the sort of love for it that I had for the C-Biogon. It may just be the better lens, speed aside. And you make a powerful case for it!

Phillip, the back lighting on the wet foliage is impressive.

Yeah, Phillip, the lighting on those is really magnificent - particularly the third one.

Hi Phillip, if I recall correctly, didn't you used to have some sort of Rokkor long macro? How would you compare them for these sort of shots?

i have got a Minolta MD 100/4 Macro

MF operation with the E 30/3.5 is a pain in the a**, you have to turn the focus ring forever to get anywere and the camera magnifies the image automatically which is ok for finetuning but annoying most of the time.
IQ is great for macro use, lots of contrast, nice colors and bokeh (-onion rings). Corners are lousy when shooting landscapes even @f/9.

I find it much easier to get sharp flower images with the 30/3.5 because of the shorter focal length plus i like to have some background in the image.

So i prefer to focus with the Minolta and could use it for insects and landscapes while the 30/3.5 is great for flower stuff.

Beautiful shots Phillip. The specular highlights in the first are a bit wierd - typically oval towards the edges, but some are round and others hexagonal-ish in the center? Did you somehow combine two shots or something or is the SEL3035 aperture not quite round wide open? But no offence intended, it's a gorgeous shot regardless!

A few from last year I just found lying around, old NEX-5 + Olympus OM 50/1.8:
