I've had a few opportunities to shoot with the new Carl Zeiss 250mm f/5.6 Sonar lens. It is super sharp. It is also huge. Longer and heavier than the 500 c/m with a 120 magazine.

Do you have places you just love to shoot? It isn't that there is something here I've not shot before. But I love to try different films, lenses, chemicals. I never tire of getting a good shot here and I'm sad when I don't.
