So here is one of the shots from today for Glavaris.se 🙂 Very patient dogs!
Sony a7r + Samayang 85mm f1.4 @f6.3 2 Nissin flashes in softbox.
Gotto get back to editing the rest now 🙂
Yeahhh, more skis (sorry about that) :p
Baged 999 meters today 🙂 Despite the crappy weather and snowconditions!
Just got my boots back from the shop, almost perfect now, they pushed the toe out alittle. My bigger foot needs a little more work, then we are home!
Both shot at with em-5 @f0.95 with the Nokton 17.5mm
Some CA around the text there in shot 2. Other then that, tack-sharp as usual.
Here is a bunch of Images from earlier today. Took our bikes for a ride to the “view point” (we also had to walk and travel by farry) Great day, great Coffee! Nice with some sun and warmth in the atumn gloom.
All but the one with the “springy thing” is whot wide open, the “springy thing” is shot at f5.6. Stoped down, The Noktons are flawless (“pretty much yeah”). Click the pictures and the topic will say “175” or “425” depending on the lens used. Sprayed away at 10fps to catch the guy on his moped. Luckaly he slowed down as he was passing, he pushed that thing to atleast 100kmh (im guessing) a little further down the road. Not just original parts i supose. 🙂
Other then that, nothing major to report. Tack sharp, nice bokeh. Awesome leneses.
Shot with Either Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 or Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 and Em-5. with either B+W UV and/or ND filters.
So here is finally a post, have been working for a few days and i havent worked up to shoting/posting. CA keeps accuring. But the most apparent thing i have noticed over the last few days is that there is alot less Coma then the 17.5mm has. and its definitely sharper aswell. Have had the CV 42.5mm f0.95 for 3weeks now? And its really awesome. Sure some CA, which i have been bitching about, that goes for both the 17.5 & 42.5.
Well, to sum up so far. Its sharp (even wideopen). slightly sharper then the 17.5, it has alot less coma then the 17.5. Colors are better (not alot), bokeh looks pretty much the same (good) its alittle smaler, 3D pop feeling is better. And on the down side? Well nothing really…
And about the images. Shot wideopen with the Em.5 + Nokton 42.5mm f0.95, hld6 (first part)
Got super lucky nailing that fish on the fly @f0.95. Took it at the weekly fishing competition in Torsång. Man those old men/ladies can haul some fish! The rest of the pics are shot at random places around “town”.
Some shots from around the house. Foggy and not to apealing today. Im sure some great photo opportunities hade presented them self if i had gone. Buuuuuut, no. a Stroll around the house was enough, plus a shot of my new ski boots and of the CV Nokton 42.5 f0.95 with the hood. Witch i dont use so i havent really remembered to take a photo of it. But here it is. Looks better without i think. All but the one containing the 42.5mm is shot with the 42.5mm. the other one with 17.5mm all shot @0.95.
Häj häj häj.
Do you know what kind of brand the man has on his glasses. I had no idea befor i zoomed in as i was sharpening the picture in Lightroom (Ray-Ban right? 🙂 ). Pretty awesome how much detail the em-5 packs in to these 16mpix shots from the Voigtländer 42.5! Pretty desecent level of detail and sharpnes in the dog crop aswell.
It really makes the subjekts popp in the pictures, thats really the biggest benefit of FF (In my opinion) Sure u got higher light seneitivity,iso performance and all that. But what makes alot of the pictures beautiful is, the magic of “popp”. And the Noktons got “popp” (!)
Pretty good shooting situations in all these shots so no really much to complain about in these pics. I think the level of detail/sharpness is the subjekt for this post!
Visited the abandoned mental asylum in Säter a couple of days ago. “Säters fasta paviliong”. (more shots below) It has been closed for a few years now and is slowly withering away with some help from vandalism.
This shot i composed out of 10? shots, all taken with em-5 + Notkon 17.5 @0.95 on a tripod with a cable trigger set at 2sec intervalls. Put together in Photoshop with layers and layer masks.
“The mentaly insane need their Coffee!” was my original thought behind this shot.
Kind of creepy going in to that tub knowing that poeple have been tortured in it over the years. Well, not tourtured, rehabilitated.
Just figured out how to enable comments (i think). So if you feel the urge, dont hesitate to leave something in the box. Im not afraid of critiques, if you feel you want to ponit something out that you think i do wrong. please let me know. Or what ever you want to say about my blog or its entries. (Please) Do it! 🙂
Well now i need my coffee to.
Please come again.
So here is what managed to select out of the bunch. Its a little bit of both the 17.5mm and 42.5mm. Took these over the last couple of days, on my way to work, in a closed down and abandoned mental asylumn and some random driving around with my car photos. If youre wondering about the text, i started to add some lame text to easier show wich lens i used. But it just looked stupid, so i stoped. So now it looks even more stupid when there is just a few with text. Well well. Pic 1,2,4,5,7 is shot with 17.5mm and thus pic 3,6,8 is shot with 42.5mm.
The foucs ring on my 42.5 is alot slower to move around when im foucsing, i guess thats because its brand new? Dont reallt remember if the 17.5 was any slower new compared to how it is now.
The 42.5 keep devlivering tack sharp images with lots of detail, nice colors,beautiful bokeh and not much to whine about. There isnt really much to say on the bad part, sure it could have a little less CA, but already it does not have much of it. It could be a little sharper. But then i guess your eyes would bleed due the knife sharp images. The Noktons sure could weigh less, but with the weight loss i am pretty sure things like softness,distortion and coma will come along. So i feel the weight is ok to.
It does make the MFT system a little less atractive, Em-5 + oly 45mm 1.8 is alot lighter and a few cm smaler. But it can not produce the same images. “The best camera is the one you bring with you” And i bring this combo alot more often then i did my Pana 14mm f2.5 (55g) and Oly 45mm f1.8 (116g). So for me the extra 700-900 grams? (not shure about the weight difference) that differs from my old kit to my Nokton kit is totally worth it. But i will say that the extra 700g does not go un noticed. If you’re thinking about buying this lens, you should have the weight in mind aswell.
So for me. This is the best camera! I totally love the 17.5& 42.5 combo. the characteristics of the two differs quite alot and they deliver awesome images.
Not shure what the exact f-stop is on pic 2 (pretty shure labled it wrong with the ugly text). but the rest is shot @f0.95 with:
Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 or Nokton 42.5mm f0.95
B+W ND4 or B+W ND8
Hld6. Awesome grip! (the “first” part of it) the secound part is kind of awkward.
Just a quick “while im eating” post. Adding some shots igot around to edit just as i had to head for work earlier. Just stoping by for a sandwich befor heading out to try and cath some more stars. All shot with 42.5 @f.095 exept the last one wich is shot with Samyang 7.5mm f3.5.
