    f/1.8 1/4,000


    All with the Zeiss / Sony 135 f/1.8 (for Minolta/Sony A-mount) on the
    Maxxum 9 (Sensia 100). (Nikon 9000 ED scanner)

    I don't think I'll be able to resist the Zeiss 85 f/1.4 ...

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    I like this one with the well lit background. Nice.
    More enjoyable on film?
    An 85/1.4 is probably next on my shopping list.

    I was just finishing off the roll and thought I'd do some wide open
    tests. Film is nice! And in this case, to get wide open, I had to
    shoot at 1/10000 which my DSLR can't do w/o an ND... (1/4000 max) Makes
    me wish harder for K-25 or a less saturated Velvia (50). (I also shot
    this at 1/8000 but it's a bit "thick" for the scanner).

    With the odd bits of breeze, having 1/10000 as a shutter speed allowed
    me to wait for relative calm instead of dead calm.

    Hopefully Sony will go for a 1/12000 (or 1/16000) shutter speed on the
    "pro" model in 2008. (As well as FF).

    Film? Shot a couple rolls of Sensia (35mm) and one roll of Astia 100
    (Sensia in reality, just marketed as a pro film and kept in the fridge).
    Esp. for full frame shooting. I'll try to hold off until the new year,
    but it ain't easy!

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    6297064 is attractive but I was distracted by the white (flowers?)
    spots in the BG. Think about cloning them out?

    I would think that at 1/10000 you could shoot in gale force winds
    without blurring.

  6. Yes. - Even the average bullet only goes about 4 inches in a 10,000th of a
    second.
