Thanks, Tas. I agree with you. This is straight out of the camera.

Australian discounts on Zeiss ZF2 lenses.

The lenses available on discount can be found here: Zeiss Lenses | Buy Zeiss DSLR & Digital SLR Camera Lenses Online

Went out today with my adapted Zeiss ZF "Classic" version 35mm f/1.4 on my K-1. Shot this one at f/2 because I like how at this aperture it seems to create a bit of depth.

That is a beautiful image, Dave. It is impressing how f2 works.

I was exploring my new Classic Carl Zeiss 100mm, f/2 lens. I was hunting for it over two years and recently won one on e-bay, ZF version. Fenwoodian (Dave) excellently adapted it for Pentax. I am very thankful to you, Dave! It is a great joy to use this lens. Below are some examples shot habdheld on k-3 at f2. Almost no post-processing, some cropping only. I am not a pro but critique is welcome.

An image I forgot to share here when I posted it in the K-1 thread last night. It's five images captures in portrait orientation with the K-1 and the Zeiss Distagon T* 2/35, and merged as a pano in On1 Photo RAW.


If anyone is thinking of shooting their Zeiss lenses for panos, something I wholeheartedly recommend BTW, I'd suggest you consider the Zeiss characteristic of vignetting at wider apertures. I love how they Vignette, but the vignetting will be too hard for some software to manage properly. I found out how bad a problem this was with the Zeiss Makro Planar T* 2/50 when I captured a series of shots for a pano at f2. I combined the images in the Gigpan Stitch software and the vignetting effect was noticeable and completely ruined the image. As it was multiple layers I needed Gigapan Stitch for the merge, but maybe newer software will be good enough to compensate especially if you prepare your images with a good lens profile before stitching. Anyway, my point is, know what the Zeiss lenses will do when shot wide open if you intend to stitch into a pano later on. Especially if it's full daylight in the sky with little cloud to mask the variation in luminance.

Having said all that, this image was shot at f2 due to the fading light and my inherent aversion to dragging around a tripod if I don't have to. The vignette is still influencing the image but with the low light conditions the program did a decent enough job to not ruin the sky. I managed that by adding a vignette in post.

Excellent clarity and composition. I just love how this Zeiss 21mm lens renders reflections!

Cheers Dave, it had been too long since I'd been out with the 21. It was good fun indeed.

I also got some time with the 2/35 and the 2/50, this was with the latter at your favourite f2.

Chicago Pano with the ZK 35/F2

You guys are posting some very inspiring images. So here's my first try at a Pano. This was taken in Chicago, Dec 2016. I specifically went out at night. It was cold and windy as always, but totally worth it. I need to learn how to straighten the horizon if possible. I was standing off to one side, so I'm not sure if how easy that will be... I guess I need more practice...

Ha! I've taken that same shot multiple times but not with one of my zeiss yet. My recommendation is to set up camp on the northside of the planetarium.

After that level your camera. And rotate your camera on the head, checking your level over the entire range of the panorama.
