Excerpt: I wanted a lens that can do a little more than just record a scene with boring, sterile accuracy; a lens that has personality and wants to be studied to reveal its potential. The 28/2 Distagon is such a lens.
Excerpt: This Zeiss lens along with their other lenses are incredible. I'm experienced with all types of high end glass from L series to Hasselblad and can say without a doubt that this line of Zeiss lenses are the absolute highest image quality you can hope for.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: i shoot mostly video with the 7D and this lens always seems to have the right perspective. i love it. it's sharp as a tack, the focus is perfectly smooth, color and contrast are exceptional. highly recommend it.
Excerpt: First impression of this lens is build quality. It does feels like an expensive lens. Focusing is so smooth. However if you like lightweight lens you may want to think about it. Regarding picture quality, I love its contrasty look. But beware when you shoot against light source.
Excerpt: Haven't used it much yet but I mostly liked the results. I was a bit disappointed with the color fringing of darker objects against the highlights when viewed 100% but was able to cleanup that up with PS.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this prime with the Canon 7D and have no complaints whatsoever. Images are super-sharp and clear, color fidelity is outstanding. Manual focus is responsive and easy to do. More importantly--and if you can afford the admittedly hefty price tag--this lens is a must for anyone interested in HDSLR...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
