I'm So Shallow

All my talk on Facebook and Twitter about selling the already legendary Zeiss 100/2 ZF just lost even more luster. As commercial work picks up my career yearns for the new 24-70mm 2.8. But even the great Bokeh talk about the mid range Nikkor just can't match the butter smoothness of this modern manual focus. True, anyone can be a good photographer but the saying "its not the camera" which in principle means that the gear doesn't make the photographer gets washed away anytime you put a lens of this magnitude in front the sensor. Enjoy the randoms, only 5 blocks from home. JP

Its the lens, not the camera. There is a lot of work on here that I post that was taken with a 35mm f/2 that was made in the 70's and I bought on ebay for $85. And there is also a lot posted with the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 which sells for about $100. Just look around.
