      Superb shot !
      and I suppose ZF100/2 is a most suitable lense for D800E.
      surprising resolution and beautiful bokeh.

      A most suitable lens indeed.

      wonderful colors brushed in the background and sharp focus.
      well done
      how would you evaluate your keeper rate (in focus shots) with this high resolution sensor with manual focus lenses?

    12. mingthein 13 months ago | reply

      Honestly...not that high. My keeper rate in general with the D800E is about 2%, but then again I bin anything that isn't perfect at the pixel level (as well as compositionally perfect, of course).

    13. Titom54 13 months ago | reply

      OK, that's not so much, in the end...
      I already felt that 30% were perfectly in focus (and 50% acceptable) with leica R on D700, but 2% is really low!

      Well, if I kept the 99% perfect stuff it would probably be 99%, but I'm a bit crazy that way.
