Doomin, like the tilt. A bit less hazy day could have made it even better.

Philip, here I like the haze, godd work as usual.

Phillip
These are wonderful images and interesting differences among the lenses. I would really like to see a comparison of a full, back-lit image with these three lenses. Your lens tests were also very informative but I think the full image gives a better sense of the IQ. The Zeiss is pretty amazing to me in the second shot where you are looking right into the sun, maintaining subtle detail and colors in both the sky and tree. I wonder if the Minolta MD zooms could make this shot.

@Jim Schemel, did you get to go to OWS this year? I had gone the last two years but didnít make it this time.

----Again, the quality of this thread continues to amaze me. I get to go to such wonderful places and see some wonderful glass in action. This is a real joy to take a few days off and then return to this thread, knowing there will be surprises and new things. Congratulations to you all.

My recent preoccupations involve IR, and some mixed format mimicry courtesy of the lensbaby tilt. I have used the LB+25mm ZF for some time now, almost two years, that I am happy to report it is one of the best purchases I made for my NEX. When paired with excellent Zeiss glass, a plethora of creative options is available. I donít shoot RAW anymore to streamline the process with the F3, as RAW plus jpg fine is not available, and I would rather just have the jpg fine, processed SOOC.

I hope and pray everyday Sony will give us some more refined bw options with NEX FF (grain filter options and texture overlay), but for now I can say I am satisfied with what I am seeing. I always wait for the F3 to explode given everything it sees is in purple (RAW) before it produces an image on the rear LCD. Hope it holds up as well as my C3 did, which died earlier this year, after an extremely robust shooting career.

I am finding it is a real challenge for me to photograph in high wind and rain without backlighting. The camera just sees through that stuff. What is the trick? Nex 6 Minolta MD Zoom 35-70

You really need mist or visible evidence of the wind, e. I have done decades of bushwalking and love the rain, but apart from special times its often just dull in output. Shooting in rain is pretty poor all round.

Older films like Velvia did mist well, IMO, so maybe look for more open vistas obviously affected by the atmospherics. Also you get fabulous closeups with water drops, wet wood and barks, overall I much prefer to washed out sunny scenes. Much better in wilderness too, underexpose a little. Just after rain but with overcast is excellent, the air is still full of vapour and the camera stays dry.

Philip very nice and moody images. Looks like you figured out how to use the lens. The corners on the building look sharp at F8. What is the final verdict regarding the lens?

Thanks all for the likes for the light from heaven

@ ebookman; I was thinking about photographing in the rain and I agree with Philip that for landscapes it almost always turns out rather dull. But in the city it can be challenging.
I am think about reflections in puddles, compositions with umbrellas etc. Think about James Dean in the rain in New York.

@ Peire; Nice photographs of streetcars, they are really nice to travel in in Lissabon. It's fun, also because they didn't modernize them to much.

Here are some compositions in overcast light, according to Bernd and Hilla Becher from the so called "German school" the best light for architectural/industrial photography. No distraction by shadows or romantic lighting but overall light to concentrate on the subject and composition.

WOW, what a great page!! Serious eye candy looking through the images here.

Sir Fish, I am so missing my CY35-70. Really thinking about re-aquiring, even though I like the Minolta analog... Your image is kind of tipping me over the edge here.
