A geeky post today, sorry. If you’re not into this stuff, I hope that the images are interesting anyway.

These street images were made while photostrolling with the Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF.2. All were shot with a Nikon D800E body. One of the things I wanted to see was how the optics would stack up against the high resolving power of this body. Even wide open, I was blown away by how sharp the thing is. But with a fair amount of chromatic aberration which even my untrained eye could pick out. However, this was easily take care of by Lightroom or, simply by stopping down.

One of the love-it-or-hate-it characteristics about this lens is the heavy vignetting at f/2.8. I mostly shoot with rather clinical Nikkor glass and thus found the romance imparted by the vignetting to be rather enjoyable.

Puget Sound from Magnolia, 2013

Puget Sound from Magnolia, 2013

It has been one of those typical Seattle winter days. Liquid sunshine had come down all day long, sometimes pelting, sometimes a mere mist. Then, just before sundown, it cleared. I got about 20 minutes to make some images before it started again.

Foggy Puget Sound, 2013

Foggy Puget Sound, 2013

On Sunday, the fog that had shrouded the region for days lifted long enough for us to enjoy a couple of hours of clear skies and a pleasant sunset. About an hour after I made this image, we were engulfed again.
