    A few shots with the C/Y Zeiss Distagon 28mm f/2.8.
    I'm really liking this combo! Combined with the 85mm f/2.8 Sonnar, it makes a great travel kit.

    Lovely shots. I have to get out & test mine too. I think 85mm 2.8 is a Sonnar, 1.4 is Planar...

    Wow, great shots!

    I've had this Distagon 28/2.8 when I still had a Panasonic GH2 and it was easily the sharpest 28mm option between all lenses then, native lenses like the excellent 14-45mm included. I sold it because I didn't like its high contrast with inky black shadows, although this is a testimony of its superb optical qualities. I'm not surprised it does extremely well on the A7.

    The moment I saw that first one, my first thought was: "Hey, he's either in the Pacific Northwest or in the Lower Mainland." And there it was: Eugene, OR.

    Yep.

    Awesome area. And excellent images, Nate.
