Excellent Portrait Lens

photo-trucker, Ebay
14 October 2008
  • Summary: I love being able to use this superb Carl Zeiss short telephoto lens on my Canon EOS digital bodies. When used on the cropped sensor of Canon's 10D, it works great as a portrait lens. With the maximum aperture of f/1.4, I can handhold in low light situations and the "bokeh" is beautiful. I use the type of lens mount adapter with a "focus assist" chip installed on it (which I purchased on eBay) to help with the manual focus lens.

A new definition of closeup photography

  • Summary: Spellbinding .. mesmerizing ... fantastic are some of the adjectives I'd choose to describe the bokeh of this lens. For close up lens if u cant afford the Leica 80/1.4 then get this one. Get an adapter and mount on your 1DS III or 5D and show off to your friends. The contrast is amazing the saturation is brilliant but what I really love about older MM type lenses is that they have this incredible bokeh along with an unbelievable cleanliness about the picture.

Expensive and heavy, but worth every penny and kilogram

  • Summary: Every aperture of this lens has its own character. This is a two-edged sword. It is a lot more fun to explore this lens and try out its different capabilities, but the downside is you have to spend time with it to use it effectively. I am still not quite there yet. The lens is large (with 82mm filter) and heavy (almost 1kg). It is an improvement over the manual focus version in close-focusing performance.
