The Incredible Zeiss ZM 21mm, f/4.5 Lens

As you may recall, I have a new toy. This Zeiss ZM 21/4.5 lens is incredibly sharp and focuses quite close. Following is a close shot of a flower.


I view my pictures in Picassa Viewer. It has a 1:1 button which when pressed will zoom the photo to 1:1 magnification. It is a bit animated zooming, happens in an instant and the picture seems to jump at you. Well, when I pressed 1:1 on the above photograph, what jumps at me is:


Do I need to say anything else.

No post processing. Even the composition of the crop was sort of automatic.

    I’m been admiring its sharp focus, but then, you must have a steady hand too.

    You can have the sharpest lens in the world and still get a lousy photo if you can’t keep your hands steady when shooting hand-held and about to depress the shutter button.

      Thanks Vicki. I do have a steady hand. However, accurate focusing could be a problem with this wide and slow lens. Then I only post the successful shots here.

  3. Beautiful shot – great shadow and the light coming through the petals is impressive.

    Just lovely! The original composition is delightful–and what a joy to find the hidden treasures in the crop!

  5. Awesome lens, awesome results!
