Is there anyone who has direct contact or is working with Zeiss ?
Checking out whether they are going to make the 15/2.8 Distagon for Nikon or not...
I believe this one is still made in Germany.
Ryan and Evin,
I didn't try the Nikon 17-35mm nor the Nikon 80-200mm, but the Nikon 28-70mm hold focus very well through the range though...
What do you think ?
Just got my new zeiss zf's in the mail today.
28mm 35mm 50mm 85mm
working on finding a good wide prime or zoom that is faster than 3.
also looking for a long range zoom.
these lenses are beautiful.
just did some quick testing and it looks amazing.
they will be going to duclos on monday for a cine mod (gears, declick, 80mm front)
Best to think of the SLR short zooms as variable primes. But some are indeed very sharp.
My one question to you is regarding cinema-mechanics. What if the lenses in question were the Contax Zeiss, cinemodded at Duclos? The Contax Zeiss lenses, as opposed to the ZF's and ZE's, focus the right way and have a manual aperture. Once declicked, given a focus ring, and a constant 80mm front, these could have all the mechanics you need right? Knowing this now, would this alter any of your opinions regarding still zeiss vs Super Speeds?
Love your thoughts.
Wanted to go back to this amazingly informative thread, but all the images/videos are broken links :(
Would be awesome if you could make them work again Ryan...
Thank you for the review.
