  • Yes, it was quite abrupt. It also wasn’t just unsharp, it was a bit smeared and unattractive. And that’s whats got me stuck on the G. It matched the center, had a slight midzone dip, and looked as ...
  • That is a good dark horse candidate. Nice shot regardless.
  • What I tried was the 28/2.8 MM, not the Hollywood. Yes, they are both Distagon’s, which is just Zeiss’ name for retrofocal Lenses. I haven’t tested it more yet to verify field curvature of the ...
  • Have the VM version too :-D It’s for sale though. Very good lens, but it’s not a Zeiss, has a different rendering. Yea, they work well, easier than using them on Nikon too.
  • I’ve had the ZE 21 before, great lens, better in mid distances but still strong at infinity. But it’s a hoss. Need something in the 28-35 range though. Hollywood could be an option, or maybe a 25 ...
  • Sample variation is always a possibility. But the issue lies outside the APS-C field of view, and it is substantial. I believe field curvature is at play, as it bends out, near parts in the ...
  • Thanks
  • Do you find much CA or fringing with this lens? I had one I generally liked but had kind of string fringing. But was also noticeably decentered. Wondering if it was typical or if I should try another.
  • Thanks CK. I’ve never shot the 100/2, but am aware of its reputation. I did try the 85/1.4 once and like the 35/1.4, it’s special in its own way but not for me. I wouldn’t rule CY out for sure, ...
  • Its not the heat that cures, it’s the output of UV light. Not sure if that bulb is good or not. The foil is actually to minimize heat build up on dark lenses when using sunlight. Find a good UV ...
  • Created discussion thread Which Zeiss Series?
    Trying to shrink my kit, and I don’t like mixing and matching lenses, it’s an OCD thing I guess. I know many will say pick the best lenses regardless of system, but no. I think I’ve made a choice, ...

    Love mt Tenba Cooper Slim 13. Perfect size for Sony (without grip), it’ll take the 70-200 fine on one side. Carried a Tamron 70-200/2.8 w/ MB4 for a bit. RX1 on the other and 85 on the body.
  • Created for sale thread D610 & Tamron 24-135
    Great starter kit FE someone looking to go full frame. Both camera and lens are near mint. Body only has 1,666 activations though I may use it a little more. Lens has clean glass and focuses well. ...
  • Replied in Acros Samples?
    Thanks, meant to say X-T10, not 20, though the 23/1.4 looks like it would be unbalanced on the X-T20.
  • Replied in Acros Samples?
    Yea, it's very telling to see side by side. I've seen that Fuji article about it before, but having and manipulating the full size files is best. Its like image is higher contrast, the shadows are ...
  • Replied in Acros Samples?
    Thanks, quite helpful since something like an X-T1 or X-T20 wouldn't be out of the question. I also like the Acros film, which has me interested in the simulation in the first place. Hard to ...
  • Replied in Acros Samples?
    Thanks for all of these. Acros does look nice, think I might wait for supporting bodies to drop a bit in price though. Appreciate it, I'll keep an eye on them.
  • Replied in Acros Samples?
    Hoping to get some 24MP jpegs if possible. I knew it needed the newer sensors...
  • Now that’s interesting. I have the Rollei version of the Ultron, and like it’s character so look forward to it!
  • Created discussion thread Acros Samples?
    Anyone have full resolution Acros simulation samples they’re willing to share? Don’t really mind which camera/lens, just want to see what the simulation looks like at large size. Usually a Sony ...
