Excellent Hood

  • Excerpt: Nice finish matching that of the lens, and does its job. As others have said, it would be nice if it came with the lens instead of being a separate purchase. Obviously that hasn't stopped anyone from getting it. A good product.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight

Cute but not for me.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for an extremely compact lens at the expense of some features. I got this lens with the intention of using it on my A7S for both photos and video. As a photo lens its very good I had no complaints other than the close focus is 3' when a lot of other 50mm's can focus to around 18".
  • Pros: Compact, Sharp
  • Cons: Close focus, Not For Video, Poor Close Focus

Why wasn't it included with the lens?

  • Excerpt: Bottom Line: It's a lens hood.. it prevents unwanted glare and it should have just been provided with the lens itself. We already paid $ for the lens and this small piece of metal should have just come along as a package deal.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Expensive, Overpriced

  • Summary: I have multiple canon lens and recently got this zeiss for my new fujifilm x-t1. This is by far the best lens I ever had. A lot of people don't understand how important this lens and the artistic property it has until you try it.

Nothing Beats a Sonnar

  • Summary: As always, Zeiss has not let me down in build quality. As always, built like a tank. Though this lens is little, it’d make a formidable weapon in a fight to whip at someone’s head. I’m always impressed at the weight of their glass.

Photography is art. This lens creates art.

  • Summary: This lens is magical. It crates portraits that flatter with an artistic, painterly quality. Bokeh is glorious. I use it on an M240 and don't really worry much about the whole "focus shift" thing - I just shot like any other lens and the photos are fantastic, but if you are a pixel peeper it may not...
