Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon: Examples in Eastern Sierra (Sony A7R II)

See my Sony mirrorless wish list at B&H Photo.

These examples include single frames of various apertures, as well as several focus-stacked images, which may be of interest to landscape photographers in particular, for showing what is possible in just 2 frames:

Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon Examples: Yosemite Area (Sony A7R II)

Examples at sizes up to 28 megapixels.

The about $1299 Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon is a winner for landscape shooting. An unheralded attribute is its zero distortion (< 0.2%), always rendering the scene more naturally than any other 35mm lens. Its small and packs easily and with 2 frames, many scenes can have huge depth of field via focus stacking.

The detail of this image is incredible at the 28 megapixel size when seen on an iMac 5K.

Jeez, View Through Pines to Mt. Conness is almost Ansel like.

DIGLLOYD: actually, if seen on the late 2016 iMac 5K, it's better than any print Ansel could ever have made—far superior dynamic range, and extreme detail.
