Excerpt: This is a very nice lens. Very well made. Focus ring is smooth and the long throw makes it easy to focus. Minimal distortion considering the focal length. Bright lens, very good contrast and color rendering. Resolves well on a Nikon D800.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: The best,tact sharp,however am planning of re-selling in favor of Nikkor 14-24mm. Highly recommended though. My preferrence is 14-24mm so I have some leeway on my photography,otherwise this is cream ala cream lens and fast.
Excerpt: This is my eighth Zeiss lens and I continue to be amazed and impressed with the quality built into all my Zeiss lenses. This lens is no exception and is as stunning as other interviewers have stated with fantastic color reproduction and low distortion across the entire image.
Pros: Beautiful Color Render, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: As an architectural and real estate photographer, I use this lens about 95% of the time for the interior of homes and buildings. I cannot imagine a lens other than the Zeiss 15mm Distagon being better suited for this purpose...I need the ultra-wide angle to compose as much of the rooms as possible.
Excerpt: I've only had this lens for a few days, but so far the images I've made have been exceptional. I have to say, though that it does seem a little soft around the corners at apertures wider than f5.6. This lens shows some vignetting that can be easily corrected in software.
Pros: Consistent Output, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Just received my 15 from B and H and have to say that it is a truly beautiful lens. The limited tests I shot with so far show that this lens excels above the rest. Punchy, sharp, gorgeous are but a few of the adjectives I'd use to describe the performance of this lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: We use this on primarliy ona Canon Mark III and a CanonC300. This lens is crystal clear, the colors are beautiful, and it is super fast. We also own the CP2 15mm cinema version of this lens and it is exceptional with our rails and follow focus.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I do dislike the price tag, but after using this lens for the past two weeks, I have fogotten that only downside. I rented a number of very wide lenses made by Nikon, Zeiss and one other manufacturer while researching this purchase and the Zeiss 15mm proved the best at corner-to-corner sharpness,...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
