View it big!

I've been searching for a cheap portrait lens for the 5x4 set up, which involved reading lots of different articles and viewing lots of different examples. Most of the best lenses are sold for a bit more than I'm willing to spend (at the moment) on eBay. But then I discovered this barrel lens at MW Classic Cameras where I bought the camera. Being a barrel lens means it doesn't have a shutter, but that's where the focal plane shutter of the Speed Graphic comes in handy. Using flash is a bit trickier as there is no usable sync for electronic flash when using the focal plane shutter. So for this test I decided to darken the room, manually open the shutter and fire the flash before closing the shutter again - using 'T' mode. It seemed to work well and the result from the lens looks really nice.

Of course if I was trying to capture the FED 3 properly I would have stopped the lens down a bit, but I wanted to see what the out of focus areas looked like wide open.

Mounting the lens is going to be the next challenge so that I can use it properly without the fear of it falling on the floor - it's currently mounted in a cardboard 'lens board', which I can wedge into the front standard. It performed very well for this test!

Camera & Lens for photo: Olympus OM-D E-M5 & Panasonic Lumis 20mm f/1.7.

I still own a few lenses from back in 'analog times', a few being of the 'Made in Japan' Carl Zeiss brand, with a Contax/Yasicha (C/Y) mount. With the help of an adapter these older lenses work just fine with modern, digital cameras, all of them with sensors quite a bit smaller than the full frame (36x24mm) 135-film they were originally made for. With no electronic connection between lens and camera, both aperture (f-number) adjustment, as well as focusing, have to be done manually.

Even with the German built NOVOFLEX adapter connected, the lens 'set up' is rather smallish in size and weighs less than 110 grams.

Tessar T✶ 2.8/45 Carl Zeiss Contax AEJ pancake. Exceptional sharpness in the classic Tessar 4-element design -"The sharpest pancake lens ever made"!

Lens Composition 4 elements, 3 groups
Angular Field 50 degrees

Amazing details in these flowers. Taken with the Canon 1Ds2 and Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f/2.4. Even though the camera weighs a ton I am always amazed at the quality it produces and will never give it up even when new models are coming out every year.

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28

I had a brief opportunity to try some Carl Zeiss glass today thanks to my good mate Dan. Although the timeframe was brief [30 minutes during my lunch break] I think I got a feel for what they're all about. Manual, manual manual. Unfortunately the lenses I tried (Distagon T* 2/28 and Planar T* 1,4/85) were both Nikon mount so by using EF adapters, focus confirmation was lost. For me this meant shooting only with Live View. The standard focus screen just isn’t good enough for high precision MF (IMO).

The build quality of both lenses feels good and they have a reassuring weight to them. I can't really comment on the aperture rings, as in true "me" style, I threw them both wide open straight away and didn't go back. The focus rings got more attention though. Solid, smooth and precise are words that come to mind. Perhaps too precise, in the sense that to shift focus a large amount takes far more twists than I'm used to. Just make sure you're not focusing in a hurry and you'll be fine. The flip side of that means that nailing the focus is made easier as the amount the plane moves is tiny per twist.

So am I a Zeiss convert. Will all my L glass suddenly end up on eBay. Nah. Not for me. I like that they slow you down, and I’m sure my MF skills would improve in time. But I don’t think I’m ready to say goodbye to AF just yet. It was a great experience to try them, but I’m not sure I’ll be adding any to the collection just yet.

Exa Ihagee Dresden (number of body: 422591). This Exa was made in Dresden, Germany around 1952-1959. I got it from my grandfather and this is the oldest camera I had ever have.

The simple hooded prism finder (so called waist-level finder, you have to look through it from the top, and the image is inverted in the horizontal plane) is the independent element that can be replaced. The shutter is circular and shutter speeds are limited to a range of 1/25 to 1/150 plus B.

Soon I'll update my first roll with this Exa ;-)

Flickr GF1 System With Carl Zeiss T* Lenses

The Lumix GF1 MIcro Four Thirds system with Carl Zeiss T* 35mm f/2 Planar and T* 90mm f/2.8 Sonnar lenses. The focal range of this four lens 'system' is 14-90mm which in 35mm terms would be 28-180mm. Quite sufficient for most needs. The 20/1.7 is blisteringly fast and is a workhorse 'normal' lens which is incredibly sharp even wide open. Stopped down around f/2.8 it becomes an absolute razor. The Zeiss glass, renown worldwide for its sharpness and bokeh, companions very nicely with the MFT format. The 35mm f/2 T* Planar (which is a 70mm lens in 35mm terms) is a very pleasant portrait focal length with a truly wonderful bokeh. For journalistic photography where candids and casual portraiture are the primary venues, this system seems to be ideal. For street work where one wants to work quickly, quietly, and discreetly, this system excels. Even without the Zeiss glass, which is more for deliberate portraiture, the pancake as well as the zoom can handle most any situations quickly, competently, and provide images of exceptional quality.

進辦公室,在自己辦公桌上替 Rolleiflex TLR 找個風水特好的好位置,打開她的腰平觀景器,讓她嬌羞的陪我一整天....

下午四點多,溫暖的陽光從後方微微映照在我的Rolleiflex上,心想著,等會下班肯定要去記錄今日的夕陽.....

準時五點半下班,往外頭一瞧,天黑了,心裡頭一驚才晃然發現,原來現在的太陽這樣早下班,因為已到歲末年終的季節....

此時心裡想著,這年頭計劃的事,實現多少?完成多少?失去多少?

I think this Planar 85/1.4 AEG is masterpiece (I also have Canon 85/1.2L II)
but this is exceptional lens. I regret a little because I have to sell it a couple weeks ago.
And one more time - if you ever need true CLASSICS - 85mm lens you have to buy Carl Zeiss Planar, because this lens is the best!

Contax Planar MMJ (Made in Japan version) is a little worse in comparison with AEG (Made in West Germany version).

Flickr Praktica VLC + Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50/1,8
Tags: pancolar   carlzeissjenaddr   waistlevelfinder   prakticavlc   
Born from the ashes of the mega faillure that was the Pentacon Super, it is a remarkable result from a series of failed projects. I am fully convinced that this camera was never meant to be a Praktica at all, only a Praktica based Exakta. The outcome of that was the Exakta RTL 1000, sister camera of the VLC. After the lawsuit that compelled the Germans to drop the Exakta name, something had to be done to the new dead born baby, hence the Praktica VLC! This is my theory, the two cameras could have been planned together all along.
Anyway, like I wrote earlier, the camera has many genes from the Pentacon Super, the good ideas remain, waist level finder, vertical shutter, sofisticated metering with centre weighted leaning to spot. Electric transmission of the light values to the meter, no mechanical links to the camera to perform this, all this when Nikon was still playing with cams and levers. The lens line up from Carl Zeiss Jena DDR was second to none. Sadly, the winder was forgottten, all the pro features of the Super as well, like the top speed of 1/2000. Still, it sold fairly well, with a price tag closer to the Praktica usual, not the delirious price of the Pentacon Super, almost twice of the Nikon F! I find it quite handsome and it is a bargain.

Lens used for this project shot.

One of the first things that people doing research into tilt shift lenses these days come across is mention of a DIY tilt setup. This usually entails using a medium format lens on a (D)SLR, often in conjunction with a toilet plunger, to achieve the tilt effect.

That's how I first came across this lens with such an alluring name... Carl Zeiss Jena Biometar...ah Zeiss... I know that name... but back then, the going price for these guys ($150 and upwards) was still "expensive" so I ended up purchasing its clone, the Volna-3 80mm f2.8. Fast forward a few months, and I have my first Pentacon Six TL with a couple of lenses, including this Biometar. The allure of the Zeiss/Planar design bokeh and the possibility of adapting it to a DSLR via a tilt adapter was too strong, and if I were going to get some MF lenses, why not grab an MF body along the way, no? After all, it's usually cheaper to buy a cam/lens set than to just buy the lenses.


Fast forward another several months, and I got me pretty much the whole range of the CZJ optics, as well as a dedicated tilt/shift lens for the Pentacon Six format. And a Hasselblad kit, too. Seriously, I do feel like that Heroine addict asking myself "Now how the hell did I end up here??" :-D


The CZJ Biometar is the East German equivalent of the Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm f2.8 designed for Hasselblad, et al. They're definitely not the same lenses, but really close enough, and optically speaking, they are neck to neck in performance [source].

It is a Xenotar type modified gauss/planar design, just like the Ai-Nikkor 105/2.5 from the other day [source]. The black MC version has significantly better flare control compared to the zebra version that preceded it. It is great on a Pentacon Six or a Kiev/P6 mount medium format camera, and it is great on a full frame DSLR with some help from a Hartblei tilt adapter.

It's just a damn fine lens, period.

Huh, this got explored, too... weird :-D But thanks y'all

During a temporary(?) fit of insanity, I snatched up a Sony DSLR-A900 when I saw it available in Finland at a price close to the UK-only deals I'd been drooling over. I haven't regretted the decision, and it seems to have been a very opportune moment—the camera disappeared from the online shop within hours of my order, and the shop informed me that it was because they had sold all they could get at that price.

For me the major advantage of this camera is finally being able to use my vintage lenses without a crop factor, i.e. on a sensor as large as the film frame the lenses were intended for. The only disadvantage is having to figure out what to do with my beloved Sigma 10-20mm lens, which doesn't quite cover the full frame (although apparently the camera doesn't force crop-mode with this lens). I may just sell it and get something like the upcoming Samyang 14mm f/2.8 instead.


(As a brief review: this camera is great. The viewfinder is the best I've seen, the ergonomics are excellent, and everything I need is included. A couple of additional, non-essential features that could have been easily implemented in software, e.g. mirror lock-up with the wireless remote, but overall the camera is very full-featured.)

About

One more acquisition, a prime lens, an old beauty from the seventies… now with this one on top of my bellows, I can get extreme magnifications on macro images… also this lens is the best for street photography… and its absolutely clean and sharp, no noise, no vigneting, and renders colors in the most fantastic way… all manual, of course, a joy to operate… the focus, the aperture… photography at its best!!! I will post something made with it soon. :)
If you want to know more, just ask...

The shot

Standard exposures in RAW/ISO100 on a tripod using the 135mm Carl Zeiss lens.

Digital Photo from Canon

Directly converted to Tiff with default settings.

Photoshop

Just a little piece of Curves for a little contrast, thats all... for you to see how amazing these lens work! ;)

Budapest - I love this city! no, really.

Handheld of course, I wasn't too afraid it will become 'blurry', the Biometar bokeh seems nice enough.

Diese optische Konstruktion wird als verbesserter Gauß-Typ bezeichnet und besteht aus 6 Linsen mit 2 verkitteten Gruppen in der Mitte. Der bekannteste Vertreter dieser Art dürfte wohl das Xenon von Schneider, Kreuznach sein. Aber auch das Pancolar von Carl Zeiss Jena, das Heligon von Rodenstock, das Summar von Leitz, das Oreston von Meyer Görlitz u. a. beruhen auf diesem Prinzip.

Der am meisten verbreitete Nachbau des Biotars ist mit Sicherheit das Helios.

Ausgangspunkt dieser Bauweise ist das Biotar 1:1,4 von Merté, der 1930 dieses Objektiv auf der Grundlage des Planars von Rudolph weiterentwickelte. Zeiss Oberkochen hatte ein Planar dieser Konstruktion lange im Programm und bietet es auch jetzt wieder als Planar T* 2/50 für ihre neue Meßsucher-Kamera (M-Bajonett) an.

My Canon AL-1 with a Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 75mm f1..5 lens. It's an Exacta mount lens, mounted with an Exacta-to-FD adapter. The AL-1 uses an aperture priority exposure system, so it's very easy to use with a non-FD lens. And the Quick Focus assist indicators are handy for a nearsighted guy like me, too.
