[Update: 8:30pm] Finally have time to take some more daytime shots, well afternoon shots to be exact, again of the Victoria Harbour.  The distortions on the edge of the frame does not look too shabby at all, what do you think?

Got the lens last night and hopped right out to the harbour side to take a test shot of the Victoria Harbour.  The above pic was shot in RAW, straight out, no post-processing.  Will try to shoot some daytime landscape pics today.  Below I attached some closeups of the lens together with the other Carl Zeiss lenses I have.

The hoods though look alike, are in fact different in size, ALC-SH106 on the 16-35mm and ALC-SH101 on the 24-70mm

  1. I would like to see full size reproductions. The ones here are less than three percent of the surface area (1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36). That is a 1000 pixel wide image which was reduced from over 6,000. Sharpness or resolution can not be determined or judged in markedly downsized images unless the performance is very bad.

    Identicle image could have been made with a 10/12 Mp camera or even a 6Mp camera. In the 6 MP camera the width is approx 3,000 and you could have downsized by a factor of three instead of the 6 used here.

    So please instruct me how to find the original size image. And thank you for taking the time to post these.

  2. Could you please send me the original sample images?

  3. Me too! I’d love to see the first and fourth images in RAW, or full size at least. Thanks in advance!

  4. Would like the full size images of no’s 1 and 5 as well if possible.

    Many thanks
