You are looking at approximately the four corners of the lower right quadrant cropped from a full frame 1Ds Mark III image. Thus, the top left image is from the center of the frame, the bottom left from the bottom center, the top right from the right center and the bottom right is from the bottom right of the frame. The top left crop shows the focused-on portion of the image. The bottom two crops are slightly in front of the plane of sharp focus (and therefore not perfectly in focus) and the tree tops in the top right crop are from far behind the plane of sharp focus. Notice in particular that the Zeiss ZE 85 focuses the distant tree tops at the edge of the frame much more sharply than the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens, but the Canon delivers a much more sharp image in the bottom right sample (try the f/2.8 samples).
