K-5 IIs w/ Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro-Planar Photos (& One 100% Crop)

A perfect match of lens/sensor in my opinion.

I just wished I could get at least 10 minutes of decent weather to shoot in around here, it has been driving me nuts all week!

All with K-5 IIs & Zeiss 50mm f2 MP, captured in Raw (.PEF) and converted to 16-bit TIFF's with DXO Optics Pro 8, tweaked in CS6.









and a 100% crop from the image above for those that like to view things at 100%...

That has to be one of the sharpest combinations for Pentax. Crazy amount of detail.
Thanks for posting these!

Nice shots. Looks like a great hardware combination.
Any chance (weather permitting) of a distant landscape scene?

Without a doubt. The moment I get some nice light I will be running out to do just that...

That said, November on the 'Wet Coast' of Canada can be perpetually dark but my fingers are crossed.
