Good to see some posts again Edward. You show (again) that you have a good eye for this. But like some others, I wonder where the claws, teeth and tusks are
Having had as much time as you´ve had, traveling through Japan must have been phenomenal. In my next life, I´ll copy you!
I also fully share your enthusiasm for the Zeiss primes. I am totally sold and will most likely preorder any new Otus they release, regardless of focal length. You can really look forward to get your hands on the Otus 85. Just as good as the 55.
Hi Eldar, believe me when I say, the Teeth, Tusks & Claws are sadly missed, but as I mentioned on another thread re this point, being happily married & staying that way requires the ultimate sacrifice from time to time. Fortunately I was able to steer the sacrificial path via Japan for 4 weeks, Bali for 3 weeks & Burma for 2 weeks, currently heading to Sth Africa though for 2 weeks at Mala Mala, where teeth, claws & bad attitude still abound.
I found the recent Zeiss only trip very enlightening, in particular the Camera I chose as my back up, the Sony a7r, showed quickly it's finer point (The Sensor) and it's drawbacks, everything else. Fortunately I have 2 Sons, my eldest will now happily own the a7r, I wait patiently now for the High MP 1D something from Canon, I fear it could well be a long sad wait while looking over my shoulder with MP envy at the chaps with the current non Canon crop of +/- 50 MP sensor Bodies.
