20091219 Mustalamminvuori Landscapes

On May I visited Repovesi national park. Below is 5 photo series from Mustalamminvuori (big hill in the park). There is viewing tower, with pretty nice views. Between different Zeiss lenses the color and contrast consistency was pretty nice, very little has to be done in order to match the white balance and other things.

Based on how excellent the new manual focus Zeiss lenses (ZE-, ZF-, ZS- and ZK-series), I have really hope that Zeiss also starts to sell something in range of 180-300mm. Now I have to depend on old Contax Tele-Tessar T* 3.5/200, which is usable at f/5.6. Leica Vario-Elmar-R 80-200mm f/4 is better on things, which can be matematically measured, but it doesn't have as good colours (my personal opinion, some prefer extra saturated warm Leica colors) and doens't have the enough crispness in long end, while being excellent from 80-135mm at short focus distances.
