Cherry Blossom – Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar Electric 135mm f/3.5

Cherry Blossom - Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar Electric 135mm f/3.5

I’m finally getting round to doing some “normal” shots using this lens after a few people asked me how it performed outside of serving as a tube lens for ultra macro. I have to say, I’m impressed with it, so far. For a lens that cost just £85 posted the colours, rendition and sharpness and spot on. OK, on the Fuji X-T1 it’s manual everything so you need to be comfortable with that but if you are this is a very nice lens and well worth the meagre price it tends to command. Search for the 4 digit serial number, 5th generation lenses, which are apparently the cream of the crop. As always, click on the image above for the larger version. This shot is barely cropped and just a little sharpening in PP. Taken @ f/3.5, handheld @ 1/250, ISO 320, Fuji X-T1.
