Modern life!  :) I like the shot a lot and the treatment is also appropriate.

Via a 7Artisans 50/1.1 lens. It's a Sonnar variant, basically a faster Zeiss (or Soviet Jupiter) 50/1.5. I like it!

And at £348 it's an absolute bargain!

I wonder what a comparison with the Zeiss sonnar ZM at f/1.4 to f/1.5 would reveal.

I suppose these notions must have sold a helluva lot of Rolleiflex and Hasselblad cameras in the day.

Now, a few minutes at the computer before the News comes on, and there you are, even a simple little crop-frame Nikon will do.

Kinda depressing, in a perverse sort of way...

I can tell you that my sample of the 50/1.1 at f/1.1 resolves identically to my two 1950s-era Zeiss 50/1.5s at f/1.5, and with a bit more contrast too. (This is on a Sony A7iii.) With the ZM version the story is likely different. Still it's a lotta lens for the £$€. The focal length is shorter than the Zeisses, which are ~53mm.…closer to an actual 50mm.

One issue is the 55mm filter thread size: too small. My 55mm 3-stop ND filter causes some vignetting as does the supplied hood. A 58 or 60mm thread diameter would fix this.

Ironically I got the lens to use on my M9 but have yet to actually do that.

Rob, if you're referring here to the high quality of the Zeiss lenses for Rolleiflex and Hasselblad then of course, they sold cameras.

The case of the 50mm Zeiss Sonnar ZM is different in that it is any thing but a flawless lens, it's very different from my Leica lenses being the softest lens I own. Perversely though it still helps to sell Leica cameras because folk buy it for its flawed qualities.

Probably my favourite lens.

No, nothing to do with lenses, Keith.

It was a reference to the days (years) of LPs and the glamour of that big, square piece of artwork that was the jacket.

I think it was quite an influence on choice of camera format - you know, living in hope and running on empty? Them wuz the days.

I have just watched Cinema Paradiso, and it broke my heart; not a dry eye in the house. Who needs porn and 007 and Wonderwoman et al? All you need is a good story and some honest little emotions. Whatever happened to people?
