On my in-progress examples page:

Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 Examples: Examples: Lundy Canyon, Snow and Sun (Sony A7R II)

Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 Examples: Flare Behavior (Sony A7R II)

Dan M writes about the Lundy Canyon examples page:

Those are some incredibly detailed, beautiful blue light images. The blue light is really nice. You’ve come to specialize in that look.

DIGLLOYD: bluish light is all one gets for half the day late in the season. It’s subtle but very beautiful in its own way. Besides, this year was exceedingly poor for colorful sunsets—almost none in 6 weeks of mountain work.

that Loxia 85/2.4 rocks in sharpness and contrast. In a snow squall as here, it’s about as good as it gets at preserving a lifelike feel. And no weird performance headaches or asymmetry problems or focus shift.

BTW, manual focus lenses can be highly appealing for static outdoor photography; focus and it stays there with no glitches, if one wants to time a shot or similar. I’m quite annoyed at the Sony A7R II for resetting focus with power on.

This image is a jaw dropping testament to what the Loxia 85mm f/2.4 can deliver at f/5.6, though full effect can really only be understood at the 28 megapixel size and with the crops on an iMac 5K—unbelievably crisp. It is as good as an Otus and its performance is achieved under low contrast bluish light. Every tiny branch and twig is sharp everywhere in the frame, excepting the OOF nearby trees. I wish the image had been recorded on a 100 megapixel sensor.

Very popular with hikers, particularly with the intense yellows of aspen in the autumn, the trail runs just to the right of the cataracts, and a side trail cuts over to the waterfalls themselves. Additional waterfalls can be found beyond the upper rise. A fresh (minutes ago) dusting of snow coats the slopes.
