Shot these at the farmers market tonight. A900 and Zeiss 135mm 1.8
I like the smooth bokeh

Great pictures, really like the first one. What setting did you use for the first picture?
Man... I miss that lens/camera combo.
I'm testing out some medium format stuff next week (which I'm going to use for fashion-oriented stuff), but I still plan on getting back into the sony system in the next year as a good-light, no-action companion to my canon stuff... as well as my main portrait camera. I had a shoot yesterday in, of all things, an operating room... shooting a surgery and got shots at iso 6400 that I couldn't have gotten with just about any other cam (at that resolution)... they're sharp, colors are nice, but in the end there is a lack of sparkle in the shots.
I still don't see any 35mm files around these days that match, IMO, the sony in "fat" light (other than the m8).
Thanks for sharing.
yaaaa, I miss that combo too
Now I'm thinking to get A850 + ZA 135/1.8 however, the 9-9-2009 mystery is really bother me...
can't afford both things ^^
Leica M9 | SE 18 | Lux 24 | Lux 50 | ZM 35 | Nikon D700 | 35/1.8 | 45 PC-E | 50/1.4 | 70-200 VR II | SB 800+600 |SF 58|
Great shots, and very sharp. But I wonder how this would compare against like the 100/2. For example, the second shot and the hard outline of the A-pillar on the car. I'm thinking the 100/2 would soften that line a lot.
It would be a good contrast (no pun intended) of the Minolta "look" vs. the CZ "look".

Speaking of 135s, another fabulous lens from the Minolta era was the 135mm f/2 MD. Unfortunately, this one never made it into the autofocus mount -- probably because moving such a huge chunk of glass would have slowed a Maxxum 9000's AF motor to a crawl (and it wasn't all that blazing fast to begin with.)
Not sure what you'd do with a 135/2 MD in the digital realm if you were to run across one today... maybe put an adapter on it and use it on a Micro Four Thirds camera...? Anyway, it's another YALIWIK (yet another lens I wish I'd kept)...
Hmm, interesting that the 135 is smooth relative to the other ones. I used it a couple times, but it's rather overkill for the A700.
Yeah, the 135/2 commands quite the premium. You could modify it for A-mount...many people do it with the 58/1.2.
