    The 100/2 ZF is indeed a wonderful lens. Not being AF, it takes a lot of patience and practice to nail the focus like that. Congrats. I find the 25/2.8 ZF a lot easier to use, especially for landscape, focus at infinity set your aperture at f/5.6-11 and fire away.

    Sorry, that is ridiculous. It's a wonderful, very natural looking portrait. Looking at this it never entered my mind, this could be in any way oversharpened. Maybe your just too used to the poor contrast you get from shooting the 50 at 1.4 - often described as dreamy. :wink:
