Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon Aperture Series: Red Blueberry Scrub View To Mt Conness (Sony A7R II)

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

This is a re-run from 2016. Why? I was struck by just how beautiful this image is on the 2017 iMac 5K display at full resolution.

I really hope this awful Ferguson Fire burns itself out within two weeks—I’m chafing to see Yosemite in August, July being a smoky bust.

What’s striking to me in retrospect is just how attractive the rendering style of the Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon can be—and it is not a lens to write home about for its amazing performance at f/2. And yet the appeal if its images is very high.

... 2016 ...

This near-to-far landscape from f/2 through f/13 shows off the full behavior with stopping down: foreground and background bokeh, total image quality at each aperture when in focus and not in focus, etc.

Examples at sizes up to 28 megapixels from f/2 through f/13, with large crops also.

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.
