Took today some nightshots... Here's one of them.

Zeiss1.jpg
1/15s,f2.8 ISO800

Just resized this one, the noise is from 5D
I think Zeiss will be my general walk-around lens from now on...
The colours here are just truthful. At f1.4 perhaps bit soft in focus, but stepped down to 2.0 this lens will start rock!
Superior in color and tone compared to my EF lenses, kind of a "the good old times" -lens.
Just falling in love...

Nice. Is that a new optic or one of the classics? I'm assuming classic based on your "good old times" comment.

Brand new: https://photo-shop.zeiss.com/epages/...8&Locale=en_GB and an classic. Softer traditional focus from film ages?

Handholding 1/15s @ 50mm = steady like a rock.

Rock on.

I have one of these and the 50mm 2.0 Makro-Planar. I'm really impressed with both. The 1.4 is nice and compact and makes a great walkaround. Anything from a 5D up should be fine to MF given the very fine focus ring. Rare I get an OOF shot these days.

Took some time to get to manual focusing again... last time I had a MF lens was in my F-1 soo long ago. Nowdays I'm too comfortable with the AF lenses... The only back stroke is that Zeiss is all metal, so its so cold in -15C... Freezes your fingers when focusing...

f1.4 1/600s, ISO100:

Zeiss4.jpg

I like this lens! Great soft bokeh in front and in the back. Digital makes everything oversharp anyways... Off focus is different to soft focus...
Again, great colours in a low light. And the thrash can is watching you...

Un-Processed for your eyes only...

Can you post some pictures of your camera with the lens on it or some of the lens? I know I can see a picture at the Zeiss website but i want to some more pictures of this lens.

I think Zeiss has the best pictures of this lens, they make it.

Just another night shot. Unprocessed, though I was going to reduce some noise here... But good enough for the size of this. This would make a better b/w picture, perhaps.
