    One nice thing about the ZA 135 (and to a lesser extent with the 24-70), is that it can be used as a Macro lens. I'm using it as such until Zeiss releases the rumoured 200mm Makro, or hopefully a more traditional 100mm Makro.

    Edward - please don't tempt me to an indiscretion . . . I've managed to avoid both the 135's, but it's very very difficult!

    Okay
    I've been going through my photos for January this evening, and these are a few which tickled my fancy.

    and another view:

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    A Zeiss Macro would be super. the Sony G 100mm Macro is adequate, but it does have limitations compared to, say, my the Mamiya 120mm Macro used on the ZD- it's not quite as sharp and it has more CA being two examples. I can live with the Sony macro as its a decent if unexceptional lens but I'd like a Zeiss better - and 200mm would mimic MF because of shallower DOF. I wonder what it might cost....???

    I agree with Jono about your shot, David, being excellent, as is Edwards Jewelery shot for different reasons

    Also Jono your usual great range of atmospheric shots...

    Well, it would be money well spent. I think the 135 is becoming a classic. If I had to chose, I would pick it up over the 85, even though I love both and the 85 is sharper.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    Beautiful photos everybody. I have a question: how is the 135/1.8 with regards to CA in high contrast, OOF areas?

    Oh, and one more thing: Edward, what material did you use as background for the jewelry shots? Black acrylic?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    Hello Mr. Jorgen! Nice to see you here! How's the weather in Samut Prakan?

    I haven't noticed yet any CA in OOF areas but most of photos were taken with soft light, so maybe the conditions were not CA inducive. However, for jewelry shots, at f/16 and lens' MFD, I have seen noticeable CA from the C/R variety. My old 100mm Makro-Planar didn't show any, but the 135 is not a macro lens, so it can be forgiven for this I guess. Jewelry is usually very high contrast due to the reflective quality of the material.

    As for the background, you guessed it right. It is black acrylic backlit with a soft box.

    Cheers,
    Edward

    Thanks, Khun Edward.

    The weather in Samut Prakan is obviously perfect, as anything else in Thailand

    Didn't we talk about meeting, once upon a time in the age of Miranda? We must do something about that one of these days...

    Khun Jorgen (with a falling tone on the last syllable )

    Definitely we should meet before this current life is over, who knows maybe in next life we won't be photographers Since you're the one living out of town, just give me a ring whenever you are in Bangkok and we can quickly arrange for something. In these days of economical nightmare, I do have a lot of free time on my hands.

    Hi David
    What Lovely light. and a beautiful black and white conversion (care to share how).

    Tripper - your dogs are priceless, I trust they always whisper ;-)

    Andree - lovely photo of tragedy leaning on the rocks, it could almost be Cornwall (although she might be a bit over-dressed).

    In case you didn't see this in the 'heart' thread. I thought I'd cross-post this innocent macro:

    with Zony 100mm macro at f2.8

    Thanks Jono, that photo was taken with the Sony A700 and CZ16-80.

    Processed in Aperture, just cropped, increased contrast and slight levels change then Monochrome Orange filter applied, as well as a touch of vignetting.

    No Nik plugins yet, though I am tempted, but waiting to see what Aperture 3 brings first.

    I'm just guessing Jono, it has been very quiet on the Aperture front for a while, so hopefully soon, but I honestly don't know as Apple keep it all under wraps, unlike Adobe and Lightroom.

    As you say. Actually, I'm pretty happy with it as it is . . I'd like support for my D-lux4, and I suppose I'd like the plug in model to be non-destructive (so that it doesn't create .tif files all the time

    However, Silver efex pro is a complete blast - and I really can't see that they can implement that sort of functionality. If you haven't used it, dowload the trial and have a play, you'll be gobsmacked!

    Re: Fun Pictures with Sony . . . .

    I have tried Viveza and it was great Jono. I want to see if the next iteration of Aperture supports non destructive round trip editing and maybe localised adjustments within Aperture.

    Although my newer lenses for FF don't suffer from so much CA and distortion, I still miss a built-in tool to correct for this, at present I have to use PT-Lens plug-in, but again that involves a TIFF file from round trip.

    I also find Aperture a bit slow at times, quite frustrating when Lightroom flies along by comparison, though I much prefer the whole Aperture design.

    So, I'm just hoping that the silence from Apple means that they have got their heads down and are going to come out with something to make Adobe sit up.
