  • Summary: Awesome lens!!! Exactly as I expected. This is a manual focus lens, which was what I was expecting and just to clear it up further for those still wondering.

  • Excerpt: i was considering this versus the f/1.4 version for a few months and decided in the end that my skills did not verify the extra ~$[$]for one f-stop. i was interested in trying out a manual focus lens, and really like the 35mm perspective. i mount this on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

Canon is sharper

  • Excerpt: The Canon 35 f2 IS is definitely sharper than this lens, which I returned. Sharper at all useful apertures. Bryan's expert testing at The Digital Picture clearly confrims this. In the corners at f4 it's not even close. Why spend twice as much on a lens that is less sharp and has no AF.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Summary: The Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/35 lens is equal to or surpasses any Canon L lens. It is a manual focus lens, which might take some getting used to but worth the effort.

  • Summary: I've had this lens for quite some time now and I have used it in the city and in remote wilderness areas. I even use it regularly to photograph my 3 year old twins who can't stand still for one second. This is the most versatile manual focus prime you will own.

  • Excerpt: I bought this along with the 100mm f2 Makro ZE as my standard take everywhere pair of lenses along with my EOS6D.Extremely sharp, beautiful color and bokeh. Why use Canon glass when these are available?Manual focus feels good after years of autofocus, feel like a real photographer again!

Seeing is believing.

DCNW, Amazon
21 July 2013
  • Summary: I had read much about the Cosina//Zeiss lens line and was prepared to be skeptical. I bought the 35 f2 Distagon and was going to give it a try, and sell it if unhappy. All I can say now, with certainty, is the lens is a keeper.
