Lens Description: This Hartblei Lens with Optics by Carl Zeiss is a dream-come-true for fashion and people photographers. Despite the sensational sharpness at open aperture you can still create georgeous blurs and softening. On the other hand, with closed aperture the lens becomes a razor-sharp tool for daily studio work, allowing full control over perspective and sharpness even with difficult lighting situations (new improved Antiflare) Users of 35mm full format cameras will achieve 183% of the originally available pixel size with a shift of 2x10mm horizontally. The resulting image angle will be comparable to a 61,5 mm lens (on 35mm ). i.E, if you stitch two exposures as portrait formats, this will result in a usable picturesize of 44x36mm (at 4 mm overlapping), this gives you a picture diagonale of 56.8 mm opposing a 43.2 mm diagonale at 24/36 = Factor 1.3. With crop sensors and a chipsize of 1:1.5, the gain with a 3-time-exposure/stitch is about 250%
