Wow, I'm surprised to hear this about a Zeiss lens. Bad copy?? Even that would be surprising.

In the end, you really can't go wrong with Canon/Nikkor primes, specially the pro grade stuff.

Seems like the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 and 85mm f/1.4 use the older design while the rest of the Zeiss line-up has been updated.

Were the photos you tried to upload really big? The max is 2.6 MB per photo.

Also, some photo galleries (can't remember if it's here or not) are caps sensitive, i.e. they see .jpg as different than .JPG.

edit: Nice Montana picts! I love the West. U geologist? - I did field work in the bighorns as well. And I just noticed your avatar is a micrograph ... I make sections for a living!
Yeah I graduated last spring with my bachelor's in geology. I went to Indiana University's Field Camp out in there in Montana.

The sun provided very good lighting so the pictures turned out very well. I wasn't even using my good camera, I was using a crappy Kodak point and shoot.

I wish I had a job doing thin sections. My avatar was a project from a couple of years ago. Metamorphic petrology, really tough class. It's nice to see a fellow geologist on the forum here!

It is good to meet a fellow rockhead at that, sir! Metpet is a tough one, isn't it?!

I'm greatful every day for my job. It's living a dream (of sorts) to be honest.

Earth Science, meet Shop Class. Lovechild = Thinsection Lab. Pure joy.

[Club members, we are refering to making microscope slides from geologic samples (thin sections) and images generated the from them (micrographs).]

Now if I could only figure out how to use my DSLR to capture with my 50-year old Zeiss microscope...

edit: I'll put up some micrigraphs/pictures of my work soon. The irony is, producing slides en masse doesn't leave much time to photograph them!

GT, gear update!
Nikon D300s + MB-D10 and Eneloops
Nikon D40
Canon EOS 1

Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 AF-D
Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX
Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AF-D
Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 AF-D
Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 AF-I D
Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-D 2 Ring
Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX VR
Canon 17-35mm f/2.8 L
Canon 28-70mm f/2.8 L

I'll probably turn that 2 ring into push pull and add 2 SB-600s.

Staples 50% off LENSES AND FLASHES (when you buy ANY camera, probably including disposables).

Took mine out for a test run today as well.

These are with the 24-70:







And these are with the Canon 50/1.4 @ f/1.4. This lens is very soft wide open (but dead sharp from f/2.8 up), but I think the shots still look great, and the bokeh isn't bad. And of course, the DOF is much wider on FF:

Geology really is an interesting science isn't it?

Um, as far as using your DSLR for taking photo-micrographs, we had a kind of ghetto rigged microscope with a camera mount/bracket at the top. I think the microscope was designed for it but I can't remember the name of it.

Our other microscopes had mounts to a an internal camera that we linked to with our computers, then we had to capture video and edit images from that. Very time consuming.

I would love to see some of your work! Although, I'm not sure how much I'll recognize exactly. A year after you finish college and you start to forget things .
