Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 Examples @ 187 Megapixels: Lee Vining Canyon (Panasonic S1R)

See my L-mount mirrorless wishlist and Leica M wishlist.

I have been seeing rewarding improvements in resolution along with ultra low noise using the Multi-Shot High-Res mode of the Panasonic S1R, covered and shown in detail in diglloyd L-Mount Mirrorless. And I have finally found the well hidden way to get the magnification I need for manual focusing.

Last night I wondered if I could obtain HighRes images at the 135mm focal length. My concern was that such long focal lengths magnify the tiniest movement. There was a light breeze and it concerned me that even the wind could also be an issue, in the sense of its pressure moving the camera a fraction of a pixel or so while exposing (I shield the camera whenever possible but I can’t shield the tripod also). Those concerns are surely valid under some conditions, but on this occasion I was able to make some incredibly detailed images.

The Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 performs so well that I am showing examples at the full 187 megapixels. I recommend viewing on an iMac 5K at full resolution.

I assess the lens performance of the Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 in diglloyd Zeiss DSLR Lenses:

Below, this image when viewed at 187 megapixels clearly defines the fuzz on the aspen flowers (where in focus).
