  1. Hi everyone, I currently use the Zeiss Planar on my M240 and I am very happy with it. However, as I came from a world of Canon with a 50mm f1.2L, I really miss the speed. The Summilux is great, but can't afford it at the moment. As such, I am becoming very interested in the Zeiss Sonnar. The more I read about it the more I feel I need to experience this lens and it's infamous Sonnar glow. I have become haunted by the look of it, and it's not a matter of 1-stop of light anymore. I played with it in a camera shop and if felt wonderful. Now, everyone says the Planar is a more all rounder than the Sonnar mainly due to the focus shift perhaps, but do you think it's a bad idea to replace the Planar with the Sonnar. Mind you, this will be my main lens for quite a while now. I have the 90 Elmarit-M as well, but not sure I will keep it. I have read the thread about the Sonnar vs Planar, so hopefully I am not repeating that. I am more concerned with "will the Sonnar be sufficient in 1 lens set up on the M240?" Many thanks!
  2. Hello, I know I am pushing my camera sensor and lens to the limit by almost shooting straight into the sun. I do this because I want to achieve a cinematic effect. On my last shoot however I noticed a very strange flare issue: in the attached two photos there is a clear band on the top of the photo that is not affected by the lens flare. Has anyone seen this behaviour before? What could be the reason. I would prefer to have the flair everywhere consistently. Is this a sensor defect? Or maybe due to the 50 mm hood I use on the lens (although I doubt this can explain the rectangular nature of the artefact). I look forward to hearing from you, regards, michel

  8. I've compared a few classical Leitz/Zeiss lenses at the NEX-5N - maybe someone ist interested: NEX-5N and classical 50mm Zeiss / Leitz lenses 1) Leitz Elmar 5cm 1:3.5, uncoated (1936) 2) Zeiss Jena Sonnar LTM 5 cm 1:1.5, coated (1941) 3) Leitz Summarit 5cm 1:2, coated (1952) 4) Zeiss Jena Biotar 5.8cm 1:2, cooated (1953) 5) Zeiss Jena Tessar 5cm 1:2.8, coated (1956) 6) Zeiss Planar ZM 2/50mm (2005) 7) Zeiss C-Sonnar ZM 1.5/50mm (2005) I'ts just a small comparison - but better than nothing. If someone of the native english speaking could correct my terrible English i would be more than glad - just send me a message via "contact" at artaphot.ch, including the corrected text. I will insert it as soon as possible. Stephan

  13. Vor einigen Wochen bin ich auf ein, aus meiner Sicht, merkwürdiges Objektiv getroffen. Es ist ein Carl-Zeiss-Jena Sonnar 1:2 f=5cm mit T-Vergütung der Nr. 2853401 und besitzt nicht den üblichen Contax-Bajonett-Anschluss, sondern ein Schraubgewinde M39. Das Objektiv ist versenkbar. Die Belndenreihe geht bis Blende 22. Es passt an meine Leica III. Der Entfernungsmesser scheint zu funktionieren und die Entfernungseinstellungen sind stimmig. Hat irgend jemand so ein Teil schon mal gesehen ?
  14. ... ohne großen Kommentar. Das Sonnar ist in Leica-Fassung, Ausführung und Nummer nach aus vor 1945. Aufnahmeentfernung etwa 1,50m. (und: Frohe Weihnachten allerseits!)
