Another Outstanding Zeiss Lens

MJT, B&H Photo
31 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Another outstanding Zeiss lens in my lens collection. This is my sixth Zeiss lens and I continue to be delighted with the quality and character that each lens brings to my photos and video. I use them on a Canon DSLR and a Sony NEX FS100 (using a metabones adapter). Other Zeiss lens I own include the 135mm f/2.0, 100mm f/2.0, 50mm f/2.0, 35mm f/2.0 and 21mm f/2.8. Each of these lenses brings something special to the image and I could not be happier with my results.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Fantastic Lens

Enormus, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I love this lens. It's my favorite focal length and it's manual focus. It produces stunning images with great color, contrast and sharpness. I don't care for auto focus so this was the only alternative for me. It reminds of the days I used to run around with my Nikon FM shooting with the venerable 24 f2.8. It makes you think about your composition and about depth of field. If you want AF, buy an Af lens.

Great Manual Focus v. wide angle lens

Photoguy205, B&H Photo
22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Its a tank - all metal. My camera is a Canon 5D Mark II. Silky smooth focus for about 130 deg, down to 10" for very fine control. All modes work and it delivers full EXIF data. Also, auto focus points light up along with green focus confirmation LED. But I like (on tripod) Live View x10 where focus is very precise. Images very sharp and better contrast & lower CA than Canon L zoom lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Perfection

  • Summary: You can never go wrong with a Zeiss. Design and construction is amazing. Love the weight and feel, but most of all the quality of glass.

Perfect Lens for Tight European Places

Miltiades, B&H Photo
25 October 2012
  • Excerpt: I came into photography / videography knowing that I wanted to use primes – at least get started with them, partly for aesthetic reasons but also for the discipline. My first lens was a 50 and I used that exclusively, Ozu-style, for about a year before adding this lens to my kit.As someone working in Rome, the 50 was definitely limiting in terms of what I could fit into the frame.

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: We use this lens in a 3D photometry setup. The lens elements are very stable and we get very good repeatable images. The images are very crisp and clear. A pricey lens but worth the money.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality

I Love Zeiss Lenses!

Paul, B&H Photo
12 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I recently moved from camcorders into DSLR photography/videography with a Canon 5D Mk III. I bought the 24-105mm kit lens and a Zeiss 50mm f/1.4. Well, the Canon lens stayed in the bag most of the time because of the outstanding image quality and incredible "feel" of the Zeiss lens. These things are beautifully built. I recently added this Zeiss 25mm f/2.0 to have the same sharp image, wonderful color rendition and beautiful bokeh I got with my Zeiss 50mm.
  • Pros: Awesome build quality, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Video Quality, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Expensive but worth it, Poor Lens cap

Classic Zeiss Image Rendition & DOF

Jordan M, B&H Photo
6 April 2012
  • Excerpt: A wide angle with such a large aperture has more benefits than just shallow depth of field. While this provides ample creative uses with a wide angle lens, the greater light gathering and brighter viewfinder is the greatest aspect. The typical well-damped Zeiss focus ring is a joy to use, and the resistance makes careful focusing that much easier.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Heavy

My first Zeiss. I'm loving it.

Erik the Red, B&H Photo
16 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Alright, I gave this a 5 star rating really I wanted to give it 4.5 stars. This is my first Zeiss lens, I bought this and sold my 24-105 Canon lens. I shoot landscape photography and wanted to get a prime. After doing some research I choose this new lens from Zeiss. I chose this because I am very familiar with 24mm focal length. There were very few reviews on the internet about this lens at the time but reading many things on Zeiss it was bound to please.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Feel's good, Good Video Quality, Great construction, Great Picture Quality
