    Gustavo,

    So far, after one week of use, I like it. It's wonderfully easy to focus as all Zeiss lenses seem to be, sharp from corner to corner, and wide enough to find a home in my bag for those occasions (mostly landscapes) where I need to go super-wide. At 21mm, my admittedly subjective judgement is that it is sharper than the other alternatives I've used (on the D700 and D3s) like the Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8. The debate I had with myself before buying the lens was whether I needed/wanted something this wide. I've now decided that it has a home in my D800 kit.

    I would not have been able to get the Fresnel lens image without it.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    too much shift but I was in a hurry even though on my former campus of WVU, the way things are these days walking around with a tripod after dark looked weird, I am thinking of asking them for a permit and go back just to shoot the campus

    If there is no description, I would believe it's taken by your MF camera.
    Anyway, some of us complain the quality of D800 on portrait photos. I do doubt what did they complain when I see your photos.
    It's amazing.

    Been posting in the Medium Format, Fuji x100 and Fuji X-Pro 1 forums here at GetDpi.
    Not sure why I've never posted images here in the Nikon forum.
    Totally impressed with the images here - some of the best I've seen.
    Well, here are a few with a D700 from a recent trip to Hanoi, Vietnam.
    These are two University students from Hanoi.
    Shot with the 85/1.4 and 50/1.4.
    Hope you like them.

    Thanks Jorgen. yes the Long Bien Bridge.
    Silly us - went out for a sunset shoot.
    Of course, no sun, just hazy cloudy mucky sky
    It worked out for the best because the lighting was to die for.
    Such a cool bridge with the bikes zipping by, a narrow walkway, a train now and then and corn venders where space permits.
    In Hanoi for less than two days, but such a great experience.
    I want to go back as well.
    Thanks again.

    Other than some problematic purple fringing in certain situations, I really like it... a lot. The Bokeh is very nice at wide apertures and it seems to be pretty sharp from wide open.

    I think it's going to become a classic value lens in the Nikon lineup.

    Not too bad. I can walk up and down stairs normally now, which is an improvement. Heading to Sun Valley this weekend, and the plan was for some easy hiking. I think I'll be ok. Thanks for asking.

    Glad to hear the suggestions worked. Keep it going!

    I'm not sure just yet... at ISO 100 there doesn't seem to be any noise anywhere... really. You can lift shadows almost as much as you want with no noise added. I'm shooting a wedding with it this weekend and should get a good feel for high ISO noise.

    Here's a quick ISO 6400 shot... but was about a stop underexposed and then manipulated (tonally) pretty hard. With well-exposed shots, the noise is even less (quite so). What's nice is the amount of detail still kept at high ISO. D800, 180/2.8 wide open, i think 1/250th handheld.

    Looks good to me. I actually like the grain-like noise in the shadow areas. BTW, nice SP. Took me a minute to realize you had a monopod in your hand. I know you're a musician, so I thought it was an instrument of some sort.

    Thanks Lloyd... funny, I got so used to carrying a monopod with my MF gear that I forgot that I really didn't need it in the hard morning light, so I carried it around needlessly all morning.

    Just curious , I have seen some blue channels at 100 iso and the noise was pretty apparent but don't know how that would effect printing, I don't print so I don't know. Looking at my d700 the noise is not there at all.

    in any event looking forward to your impressions when you shoot the wedding, focus etc
