Excellent lens, great service

  • Excerpt: I got this lens recently after doing some research, so I knew about the potential for CA and spherochromatism. Sure enough, I am able to cause those aberrations if I test for them, but I have to say that I have never seen them cause a problem on any real-world images.
  • Pros: Durable, Image quality, Manual Focus, Nice Bokeh

Beautiful lens and great manual focus!

  • Excerpt: I've read all of the comments on this lens but I think the manual focus is smooth as silk and actually very fast. This lens is not heavy at all to me and the images coming from it are simply amazing. I do notice a little CA around the fringes but it is not an APO lens so that is to be expected.
  • Pros: Beautiful images, Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh

Blew me away

  • Excerpt: I read about how sharp the lens is. But sharpness was not my main concern. I wanted a lens that gave great images on the Red camera. Since I do not want to spend $30K plus per lens for a set of Zeiss Master Primes. I bought this with low expectations.

  • Excerpt: As a professional photographer, I separate myself from the average by investing in the exceptional. Zeiss primes are exactly that, exceptional. The quality and consistency make them a premier lens, minimizing artifacts and distortion.

  • Excerpt: Solidly built, silky smooth focus ring. The lens is tack sharp and the focus really pops so I don't miss the autofocus.

Everything I expected.

  • Excerpt: I use this to photograph wildflowers. The micro contrast and resolution are exactly as I have come to expect from CZ. I compared this to my 90mm Tokina and 105mm Nikon which are excellent. I also purchased them from B&H. The CZ 100mm is the winner.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Tack Sharp Lens

CUBYDC, B&H Photo
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Thought I would never find a lens that is sharper than my Nikon 105 mm Micro Nikkor, but this Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100 mm is decidedly sharper. Manual focus with the Nikon D800E is causing me to spend more time composing the shot and work is improving.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Manual Focus

Great macro and awesome portrait lens

Mudtime, B&H Photo
14 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The optics here are nothing short of amazing. A must win for any macro or portrait photographer. My first copy had some kin of malfunction where the aperture ring stripped and the focus ring locked, but I think it was a freak qc issue, as none of my other zeiss lenses gave shown signs of the same...
