Re: Not a lot...

So, I've been shooting bit more with the Milvus.  I wasn't happy with the sharpness before and wondered why.  I went back to the same area and shot the following image.  In retrospect, I think the problem was the wind at 1/100 sec.  Even 1/200 was too long during gusts.  To reliably eliminate motion blur required 1/250 to 1/400.  I'm now comfortable that the Zeiss Milvus 1.4/25 plus the D850 will handily best a Z body with the 24/1.8S.  In fact, I ordered the 70-200 FL, which should arrive tomorrow:
