A few More Sony-NEX/Zeiss results

Postby Andy » Sun Jul 14, 2013 7:02 am

Here as promised (or perhaps, forewarned :lol: ): Last weekend, I did a very "rough" side-by-side comparison with my Nikon D800 and "pro" Nikon lens: While there are some subtle differences, and the Nikon probably "edges" the Sony combo by just a hair, the results with this little combination continues to blow me away.

Sony 50mm f1.8:

Zeiss 32mm f1.8:

Knowing how "fingernails scraping the blackboard" my leaning toward (over?)saturation is to Al, :P , I want to note that other than some "local contrast" adjustments in my raw converter, these images are minimally sharpened for raw capture and very little other post processing done. Especially the Zeiss lens, renders amazing sharpness, contrast and color!

It just MIGHT be ......... well, "too good to be true" :shock:

If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .

I think Andy is trying to convince me to spend more $$.
Andy, it looks like the Sony 1.8 is pretty decent but I know from reading your blog that you are in love with that Zeiss lens!! The Zeiss seems to have dropped just a bit in price but it's still 3X the price of the Sony!! Hoping to see some more price drops soon :-)
THe photos are awesome!
