The Zeiss Colors

Sorry for bragging too much about the Zeiss lens. It is my newest toy and I cannot stop admiring its character.

The following flower looked beautiful in the afternoon light:


See how beautiful the color are and how nicely they have been recorded.

A crop:


So, what about the texture and details?

A 100% crop:


I am not a pixel peeper but the lens gives me the ability to shoot wide and crop freely without worrying about the resulting picture quality.


Shot using Fuji X-E1 and Zeiss 21/4.5 lens. No post processing.

  1. I recognize your enthusiasm; Zeiss lenses are something special!

  2. Nice images. They are clear. The pixel issue is really a printing issue. On a screen 72 dpi is generally good.

    The colour of the rose petals is excellent and the focus is certainly crisp. As sllentimphoto2 says, it’s the pixel issue that counts in printing. I have a reasonable printer, but I usually have to lighten my images for them to print out well AND rarely are my images good enough to print even as an A4 size. I think I have to stick to sharing on the computer. When I use a tripod, they are usually much better.

    Zeiss makes excellent lenses. Oh and there is nothing wrong with being happy about a certain piece of gear! If you want the best IQ, shoot in RAW – regardless if it’s only for screen. You will be able to pull out even more detail especially with a Zeiss lens!

    I’m a big fan of Zeiss lenses. I own two Contax G2 35mm film rangerfinder cameras. I have three Zeiss lenses, 28 f/2.8, 45 f/2.0, 90 f/2.8. I certainly know how you feel about having quality glass. Enjoy!
