  • I like the second shot, but you needed a longer lens for it to compress planes and make the bomb bigger.
  • for those who do not remember... http://www.amazon.com/Karlsson-Roof-Astrid-Lindgren/dp/0670411760
  • I posted a video last week. It was mainly shot with this lens on a7r. As for photos, for some reason I liked m9 better. -- Irakly Shanidze www.shanidze.com/en
  • Zeus zm lenses wider than 35mm do not perform well on a7/7r. You need to profile each lens individually to get rid of color vignetting. The best bet at this point is a used m8 body, or sony a7 and ...

  • save some money and buy zeiss 2.8/28 ZM, or save some money and buy 28mm pre-asph elmarit
  • Why is it sad? It's been like that all around the world, not just in Detroit. All sporting and cultural activities have strong societal preferences. Nobody seems to worry about where wrestlers and ...
  • Created discussions video with Zeiss ZM 1.4/35
    I am not a huge fan of video, but had to do this for a client. Had to use Sony a7R + Zeiss Distagon 1.4/35 ZM and for some fragments Noctilux and 24mm Elmarit ASPH. http://youtu.be/wMLlLESi0Rw
  • 90mm on M8 will be too long for most applications, while 40mm becomes a perfect normal lens. besides, 90mm elmar is not the lens that you will be happy with for the rest of your life :)
  • What i am comparing is results of real life practical applications. Very rarely you will need 80MP, and other things become more important for getting the best result than megapixel count.
    Nikon...

  • yes, I kept all the Contax 645AF lenses :)
    haven't tried Typ 006 yet.

  • TLR lenses are different, they have rigid design with no moving optical elements and simpler optical formulas. It provides for optical quality superior to SLR lenses.

  • The most challenging assignments of this kind I used to get from Japan Tobacco International. Their ad campaigns are very intricate, as advertising cigarettes these days is not easy. One time at...

  • So, does it mean that if you were given this lens for free, you would donate it to the poor because of its size? :) :) :)
  • I wish I could help you, but I do not know how to take boring photos... I tried, but it was so boring... :)
  • Japanese girls have this awesome habit of dressing in traditional clothes for the purpose of taking pictures of each other at historical and cultural landmarks :)
  • It is not only softness. In fact, transmission factor of Nokton wide open is lower than of 50mm Summilux at f/1.4. At least my M9 built-in light meter thinks so.

  • of course, anyone can plan a fashion shoot on location, and what if your assignment is ten street candids featuring a certain color combination? ever heard of something of this sort?

  • actually this lens has some glow in highlights when about half-stop overexposed. i will post an example soon.
  • less than with 1/50 noktilux, i'll tell you thins much :) from a practical standpoint, i took about 120 pictures with it so far, and never had a thought of something interfering in the viewfinder. ...
