Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M: Aperture Series at 1:12: 'Forest Floor Debris', and More

Get Zeiss Touit 50mm at B&H Photo.

The Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M develops compelling visual impact even wide open.

Aperture Series: Forest Floor Debris (Sony A7R, Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M)

Includes HD and UltraHD images along with crops from ƒ/2.8 to ƒ/16.

Eric M writes:

BTW, these aperture series are fantastic -- I learned some time ago (mostly from you) that lenses are the investment, and real-world tests like yours show me which give the 3D feel and pop I prefer.

DIGLLOYD: agreed, they are highly instructive in terms of sharpness, contrast, bokeh and behavior across the aperture range. Which is why I do a lot of them.

Forest Floor Debris
Sony A7R (APS-C crop) + Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M @ f/5.6

Plus these two, both at 27 megapixels as 5 X 4 crop from full frame A7R sensor:

Green Grass
Sony A7R (APS-C crop) + Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M @ f/11
Water-Worn Boulders at dusk
Sony A7R (APS-C crop) + Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M @ f/5.6

This scene explores sharpness and subject separation wide open vs stopped down.

Ferns
Sony A7R (APS-C crop) + Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M @ f/2.8

This scene explores image circle and field curvature at distance focus.

Down Creek
Sony A7R (APS-C crop) + Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M @ f/8

This APS-C crop explores how much real depth of field is gained with stopping down. Depth of field is not at all like calculations; it depends on actual lens performance.

Up the Creek, No Paddle Wanted
Sony A7R (APS-C crop) + Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8M @ f/4
