My best buy ever. The Carl Zeiss Distagon 2/35 ZE. Three years I have had it, for one of those years this was my only lens for my Canon 5D.  So sharp and produces so good colors and contrast that it put all other lenses I have tried in the shadow. Love that Zeiss lens. Has some magical fairy dust or something..  It’s only manual focus, but if you can live with that I recomend it.

A Common Eider ( Ærfugl in Norwegian ); i have not much knowlegde about birds but a woman that was watchin them told me it was a male.  Picture taken at Kirkøy, Hvaler in Norway March 8.
Wiki says . (Somateria mollissima) is a large (50–71 cm body length) sea-duck that is distributed over the northern coasts of Europe, North America and eastern Siberia. It breeds in Arctic and some northern temperate regions, but winters somewhat farther south in temperate zones, when it can form large flocks on coastal waters. It can fly at speeds up to 113 km/h (70 mph).

A friend, Hans that was actually shot with a pistol here. I treated the injuries before hospital and doctor took over. Smiling as always, but this wound was serious.

Some time later I was in a chainsaw accident,  and it took the hospital 2 hours to stich me up. 50 stitches. My bad, not wearing helmet and chainsaw safety clothing.  So I have had a rough couple of months, not taken many pictures with my Canon 5D. My Ricoh GR have been used a lot since it’s always in my jacket.

Penicillin and painkillers. Not a good picture in any way, but a reminder about these days.

All in 35mm and Black & White this month. Using both my Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35/2,0 ZE and the Sigma 35 1.4 Art.  So far I think the Zeiss gives better image quality. The Sigma’s AF is sometimes a very good thing to have – so will use this lens a lot now to see if it is a keeper for me or if it ends up for sale.

ulf-greger-Sigma-35-mm-1.4-Art--Canon-5D-2013-april-0008Bad panning attempt. Sigma 35 1.4 Art. I failed, not the lens 🙂

Still want an Carl Zeiss Makro Planar 100 – so should get rid of one of the 35’s. This is not a Sigma VS Carl Zeiss test. They are too different since the Zeiss Distagon 35 dont have autofocus and is f2 max and the Sigma is f1.4 wide open. ( Both are f16 minimum) So this is just a small comparison of the two lenses. I like 35mm on fullframe but dont want to own two of them. I had the Canon 35 L but sold it because the Carl Zeiss 35’s image quality outperformed it.
