one from today with the 85 Zeiss.
Not a particularly special expression from my son, but I like the isolation of his face from the water. Shot on a NEX 7 not a Leica though.

^ Wow, what a nice shot.
Fantastic capture, bcm....were you shooting from the diving board? Great image!!! I'll have to throw mine on the NEX-7 too...
Thank you for the kind words.
I was actually standing on top of the edge of an above ground spa. At f2.8 I got a lot of partially in focus shots even with focus magnification because he refuses to accept his role in life as my model and stay still!
I'm considering selling mine (boxed, all packaging), nearly mint, with UV filter, caps, etc...if anyone out there is interested and reading this thread. PM me if you have interest. I'd only want to ship within the Continental US, by the way...
FYI, I just listed it on Buy-Sell
Say it ain't so, Ashwin! I saw that feeler in the classifieds. Though in your position, I'd probably go with the Cron too.
Thanks, Michael! Yeah, tough choice. I have 3 effective 90's at the moment, and it's a challenge to find time to use all of them. The 90 APO-cron has my preferred look for the widest range of photography, though the Zeiss is better for portraits by a mile, due to its gentler rendering. However, it's a big investment, and after using it extensively for the past 4-5 months, I have had a good feel enough to believe that I don't need it. Time to recoup my initial investment, LOL.
I had a guy who lives on the east coast of Australia PM to offer to buy mine anytime I wanted to sell Ashwin. I've let him know you're selling. Perhaps he can change your mind about ConUS only....
Thanks, Ben. Much appreciated....
Latest update: My Zeiss dealer in Germany contacted me today to inform me that Zeiss has dropped the plan to produce a new batch of the Sonnar.
Ashwin, if you didn't sell your lens yet, you can double the price
M262 ZM 25/2.8 35/1.4 50/2 85/2
Lens is back up for sale here at GetDPI, with images, for anyone who's still looking. Keep in mind that this is one of Zeiss' most rare production runs, given that it was only produced for 2 years in limited quantities, with no plans to resume production. Legendary IQ...I just need the $ to fund my bed still LOL...
Dude, sleep on the floor like the rest of us.
