How do you guys focus your 16-35 lenses for landscapes? I have traditionally used the hyperfocal distance, but I’m not sure if this is the best method. I usually shoot at f/8 or f/11. It’s specifically the 16-35 f/4 zeiss.

usually 1/3 into the foreground, and let DOF handle the rest. If foreground is very close, then 2 or 3 image stack is possible.

I don’t have a 16-35 anymore but when shooting landscapes with other lenses I normally set focus at infinity at f/5.6-f/8. I find this gives sharper results than hyperfocal which is what I used to use

As a photographer, that's not the kind of publicity you want though. Your reputation, your product, and your brand are all in on the same. If people associate you with bad photos, you're basically done.

David A - I’m reading my way through the CV40 thread on FM and I saw your question about colour and the subsequent responses. I couldn’t disagree more with them. The 3D pop and amazing colours is the first thing I noticed about the lens!

I have fallen in love with the FE 35 f/1.4...I had hoped to be using it while strolling around Italy for the next week...but a passport issue meant we didn't get to travel...and as absolutely wrecked as it has left me...I did get to see my little girl when we got home, and it snowed last night...so despite it being something like 20 degrees outside with a windchill close to zero...this kid wanted to play outside.

I completely agree. Since posting that I purchased my FE 35mm 1.4 ZA and I absolutely love it, but it doesn’t have the same color vibrancy as I always see in the CV 40mm shots.

It’s possible that an individual might pump up the colors in post, but it’s extremely unlikely that most FE 35mm 1.4 shooters universally choose to post less saturated images and most CV 40mm 1.2 shooters universally choose to post more vibrant images.

It is a great lens isn’t it? I think it’s got a strong shot at becoming my favorite. Hope to use the heck out of mine this year. :)

Sorry to hear about the trip falling through. Very disappointing!

It will be interesting to see how the Zeiss 35mm f2 ZE lens compares to the FE 35mm f1.4 ZA. The ZA looks like an awesome lens with AF as a major plus.

Travis, looks really great. Did you buy the lens or are you renting it?
