The Weather Window About to Close, I’m Heading to the Mountains with Zeiss Loxia 35/2 and 50/2, Nikon 20/1.8
The weather window over the Sierra might close by Sunday or so, so I’m hoping to head to the mountains tomorrow to make some solid images with the two new Zeiss Loxia lenses on the Sony A7R, though its vibration issues make it a migraine for any evaluation of sharpness. I also have the Sony/Zeiss 35/2.8 Sonnar for comparison with the Loxia 35/2 Biogon. Optically speaking, since build quality is a world apart with the Loxia another better ballgame.
Also on the menu is more shooting with the Nikon 20mm f/1.8G, which so far suggests to me that it might be the best wide angle lens Nikon makes, the 28/1.8G being a dud, the 24/1.4G being fast but not really good enough, and the 35/1.4G easily bested by the Sigma 35/1.4A.
