I have a sample image I would like to display. How do I go about uploading it?

Mon Amis -

I don't believe you can actually upload a picture to the forum. Rather you can link to a photo you have uploaded to another site to dispaly it here

To link to a photo uploaded elswhere, you first click on the "img" button (second from the right on the line of buttons below where you type the subject line), then put in the url for the photo you have elswhere, then click on the "img" button again
The resulting line in the message body should look like this:
[img]http://image_url[/img]
You can also type the [img] and [/img] tages directly or type alt-p (in Windows) instead of clicking the img button.
I hope this helps.

When you try to post or reply to a topic, did you see "Add an Attachment" at the bottom of the page?

Wondering if this is a permissions issue. You should be able to directly upload images to this forum.

For some a bit different - to see how macro handles bokeh and some more semi-abstract stuff. It was very windy (10-20 mph winds), so most of this was zone focused at F2.8. Shoot and hope for best.

I use the Canon 135L for alot of product work on the 1Ds2 and one area where I've noticed the 100/2.8N has a clear advantage is how it renders objects transitioning into the OOF range. Looking at the lens behind for focus, there's a very nice soft focus effect. This is F11, and Contax lenses have a decidedly thinner DOF then the Canon lenses, so that plays into the equation. This is a subtle distinction and most people probably don't give a hoot, but to me its interesting because I can still get subject separation while maintaining a background that is still easily understood.

Hi John,

I have observed the same two points as well.

Comparing the Canon 100mm Macro with the Contax 100mm Makro-Planar, the Zeiss has a noticeably thinner DOF. I currently have a 100mm Makro-Sonnar on its way for conversion, so will be eager to compare that when it returns.

With regard to the transition to OOF, this is the main aspect of Canon lenses that consistently disappoints me, and it seems the rather harsh look is apparent throughout the focal lengths.
Even my otherwise superb 300mm f2.8 and 600mm f4 tele's sometimes need some gausian blur in that transitional area, just to smooth out the picture.

I would be tempted to try a 400mm N when the conversion becomes available, but I find the IS such a benefit on the longer lenses, I suppose I'll just have to keep adding gausian masks to those irritating areas. Sad

I purchased the 100 Makro to see if it could be an autofocus replacement for the Contax 100/2 Planar (C/Y mount). They are two very different lenses, so it was a gamble. The 100 makro performs very nicely and it's replacing the 135L. But, I'm still on the hunt for the 100 Planar AF replacement Smile I hope to have a 85N sent off to Bo-ming within the next couple of months.
