Summary: It's outstanding optical performance is matched by it's solid all metal construction - Zeiss always means quality. While this particular lens is f/4 it's light weight makes it an ideal travel companion for not only Zeiss cameras but many other brands via a lens adapter.
Excerpt: This lens for Leica M-9 Camera users is a great addition for anyone who wants to add a wonderful Portrait Lens to their collection. Its easy to carry ,comes with it's own Lens Shade, and absolutely lives up to the Zeiss Tessar T* family name.
Excerpt: I wanted a lighter travel 90mm lens as I was leaving the 500g Leica Summicron out of the bag too often. The Zeiss 85mm lens is just as sharp and contrasty all the way into the edges even open at f/4.
Summary: Ed ecco finalmente arrivato l'obbiettivo Zeiss. Un obiettivo che presenta un design molto elegante con rivestimento antiriflesso adatto per le fotografie dei paesaggi con la possibilità di scattare immagini di grande qualità a qualsiasi distanza.
