Aperture Series: Waterfall Amid Aspen (Canon EOS R)

This series evaluates performance of the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon ZE on a distance scene from f/1.4 through f/9 on the 30-megapixel Canon EOS R. The light was very blue and flat, so good , 'penetrating power' is needed to deliver good contrast and micro contrast.

Shot on the Canon EOS R using the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R.
