Beautiful! Yes, this includes the fire hydrant shot. I like shooting fire hydrants, because they are similar to people, in form, but more cooperative, and many tend to have “character” of their own.

This reminds me that I need to soon resume my search for a nicely-preserved, pre-owned 28/2 Distagon.

I haven't posted on this thread in a while!

Very seldom do I take the opportunity to photograph the same subjects/scenes with both Sony and Canon bodies using Zeiss lenses. The ZE are perfect for the job (with adapters for a7R4 and R bodies).

They are all very cool and they all have that 3 dimensional rendering, but for some reason, to me this one has most of it. Really pops!

I got myself a new lens:




Here are some images made with it:

1:

2:

ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/250

3:

ISO 100, f/1.4, 1/1600

4:

ISO 100, f/1.4, 1/800

5:

ISO 4000, f/5.6, 1/250

6:

ISO 400, f/4, 1/250

7:

ISO 640, f/1.4, 1/250

8:

ISO 200, f/1.4, 1/200

9:

ISO 100, f/1.4, 1/320

10:

ISO 125, f/2.8, 1/200

11:

ISO 640, f/5.6, 1/250

12:

ISO 160, f/1.4, 1/250

13:

ISO 400, f/1.4, 1/250

See my nice Zeiss collection so far


Out of all my Zeiss lenses, I find this 85/1.4 Planar to be the most stubborn lens. It has a double character: at f/1.4-f/2.2 it is nice and soft with a build-in Orton effect. Stopped down it is that ideal landscape lens with nice punchy contrast.
Character aside, this lens has a ton of CA, often not correctable. As bad as, or even worse than the 100 Makro-Planar It also suffers from focus shift at MFD to 5m.
The MFD of 1m is rather disappointing. I am used to the fine Makro-Planars and the 135 APO (80cm MFD).
Rocking the focus ring back and forth usually works fine, but with this lens and its innate softness wide open, I often find it difficult to see exactly when the focus is at its sharpest. At/near MFD, the lens never gets tack sharp in the center.

Nevertheless, that character, that rendering
Also the colors of this lens are really really good! I would say as good as the 35/2 Distagon! Really happy to finally have it in my collection.

By the way, does anyone know if this lens has any lead in the glass? I cannot find it on the internet or on Zeiss websites.

Thank you! Much appreciated.
Yes, the 50/2 Apo Lanthar really rocks. I wonder why some people say it has no "character".

I got myself a new lens
Kudos for your new lens.
Being a recent design, I guess it doesn't use lead in its glass elements.
Now you have to add the 21/2.8, another wonderful lens 😉

I don't understand either why people say that...To me it is clear. But I guess it's all subjective. One person sees it, the other does not. That's how it goes Unfortunately there has not been any scientific evidence how this 3D-pop effect can be achieved. Some users with pseudo-science (Ken Wheeler, aka AngryPhotographer aka Theorea Apophasis) make you believe there is due to their plausible explanations, but I cannot find real proof.
I would like to see that, but I am also that kind of person that sees what he sees with his own eyes, and a lot of Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses, including that 50/2 Apo of yours are truly 3D monsters!

Another one of these dudes that uses pseudo science is:
https://yannickkhong.com/blog/2018/5/27/depth-life

There he says:
"85mm f1.4 planar - 6 leaded elements"

Using lead is prohibited in Europe, so unless you start licking your front/back element, I don't think it could do any harm, but better safe than sorry I guess, because lead is poisonous (I don't know if it is actually harmful in the way it is incorporated in the glass).
But maybe the first copies of the lens had lead in em; they are from 2008. But I guess it doesn't really matter. I was just looking for proof, but I can accept I won't find it

According to EU rules (see https://echa.europa.eu/hot-topics/lead), using lead is not prohibited but highly restricted:

- the current maximum limit for lead in drinking water is 10 μg/l; by January 2036, the limit will decrease to 5 μg/l;
- lead limits in food vary from 0.020 mg/kg in milk and infant formulae to 1.5 mg/kg in bivalve molluscs;
- the use of lead in jewellery must be < 0.05wt.%;
- lead carbonate and sulphates are not allowed to be used or placed on the market in paint, except for the restoration and maintenance of works of art, historic buildings and their interiors;
- three limit values (ranging from 2 to 23 mg/kg) exist for how much lead may be found in different types of toy materials;
- lead and its compounds in all electrical and electronic products must be < 0.1%; optical/photo lenses are considered as electrical/electronic products (Class 9 of the International Classification of Goods and Services, see https://www.wipo.int/export/sites/www/classifications/nice/en/pdf/8_list_class_order.pdf); now, EU rules (see link above) declare that such 0.1% limit applies to each homogeneous material in a product, e.g., a single glass element in a lens; flint glass contained typically 4-60% (!) PbO (lead(II) oxide), which has been replaced by other oxides (TiO2 and ZrO2); the manufacture and disposal of leaded glasses are sources of pollution (and of no concern for the photographer health, even if he/she starts licking the front/back element ).

According to this source (http://www.marcocavina.com/articoli_fotografici/Zeiss_Biogon_38mm_4,5/00_pag.htm), the Zeiss Biogon 38/4.5 CFi for Hasselbald, introduced in the 1998, did not contain anymore highly pollutant chemical elements such as Pb, As and Cd.

Therefore, by considering that the Zeiss ZF line of lenses was introduced in January 2006, I bet that Zeiss lenses (those made in Japan by Cosina) do not contain leaded glass elements.
Under this (reasonable) hypothesis, their 3D qualities have no relationship with the presence or not of lead.

Carl Zeiss always made great 85mm lenses. The focal length seemed to be an obsession for them at times. It's a matter of regret that, after Contarex-Contax/Yashica-ZEF-Otus-Milvus they did not last long enough to do one for EVF cameras.

http://www.verybiglobo.com/zeiss-milvus-851-4-vs-zeiss-otus-851-4-vs-zeiss-planar-851-4-comparative-lens-review-2/8/

Thank you so much for the images this page, that have no blown out highlights. It's very important for us colour photographers, colour being purely a mid-tone phenomenon. The 50/2 APO and the Sonnar 135/2 make a fine pair!

3D, a very big subject. Very important: high micro-contrast, flat fields, visual distance cues in OOF/bokeh, accurate colour. We are still learning about it all, as are the designers using the new glass and CAD.
