Sony Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/1.4 FE

So it’s finally here: my new Sony Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm F1.4!

I’ve taken it out for a spin with my 8 y.o daughter just after she finished classes at school. Mid day, mid November.

It’s not that fast or snappy to acquire focus, but man, what a mood you get out of it, even wide open.

I’ll continue using it alongside my other lenses, but more and more I’ll force myself into using only this one lens, because the count-down is smaller and smaller and from 2018 I’ll be using only the Distagon.

The images are gorgeous at every aperture:

F 1.4

F 2.2

F 10

At F8 it’s crystal clear even at corners, but I’m not looking this as a must for my perfect lens.

More to come, soon.

Forest walk

Alin Popescu A forest walk 6th of January is usually the coldest day here in Romania. This year we've seen 12 degrees temperatures, a perfect time for a forest walk.
