At least my endodontist uses top-shelf equipmentRienzphotoz said:;D ;D ;D Good one! ... when I read the title I thought you bought a ZEISS lens that did not live up to its name.
That reminds me to ask you, I hear a few people say that the FE 55 f/1.8 has a bit of vignetting wide open, is that correct? if yes, was it too much or acceptable?drjlo said:As far as Zeiss, I did just return the Sony/Zeiss FE 55 mm f/1.8 when I returned the A7R. The lens was sharp as heck, but I did have one issue with it. It's minimum focus distance was a pretty far 50 cm with magnification of only 0.14x, which was a hair too little for close-ups or near-macro's ("ring shot").
Thanks ... much appreciated.drjlo said:FE 55mm has -1.6ev vignetting, which is same as Zeiss Otus 55mm per DXO, somewhat heavy for a $4K lens but not too bad in real life shooting. First photo is FE55 at f/1.8 without ACR vignetting correction, second photo with vignetting corrected.

;D ;D ;D Good one!ScottyP said:It no doubt rendered the colors of your root canal procedure in a certain "warmth" without being artificial, and made the surgical area really "pop" in a way that cannot be measured or even expressed in words. I'll bet that intangible "something extra" made all the pain and expense of the root canal well worth it.
With apologies to your mind and wallet, we just ordered an LSM 780 to replace the 510.old-pr-pix said:"When Zeiss Glass does warm the heart…or at least, the cultured human cardiac myocytes in the lab this afternoon. "
So, being curious I did a search on Zeiss LSM 510 META. The Zeiss site sent me to a page for the LSM 710! Can I conclude that the LSM 710 is a newer model than the LSM 510? It would do both my mind and wallet good to learn that even Neuro has to deal with older generation equipment from time to time!
Ditto! The pain before a root canal is always worse than afterward for me. It's the wallet that really hurts, especially after throwing in the crown work. That's money I would much rather spend on camera gear and travel.CarlTN said:I can deal with physical discomfort...I just can't deal with how it hits my wallet!! I've lost count of my root canals, I think I've had 5 in my life!
I'd be more concerned that you've got a piece of equipment called (what looks like) HAL 100 on your desk.neuroanatomist said:
