I have a lot of pro glass. This is my favorite.

debozer, Ebay

  • Summary: If you take your photography seriously then this lens should be in your bag. Everything you have read about this lens is true and then some. Manual focus is fun and easy to get used to. I have Nikon's holy trinity but this lens is my favorite. Only one problem. NOW I WANT MORE.

Beautiful shots

Leigh Ann, Amazon
2 July 2012
  • Summary: I rented this lens from LensRentals.com for my Canon D20 (yes - it's old, but it does the job) before a trip to Sweden. What a lovely lens. I did lose a handful of shots (a dozen or so out of several hundred) in very low light due to my inability to focus manually (my camera doesn't allow you to use the LCD to set up shots, and in extremely low light, it's hard to see the focus well through the viewfinder when shooting detailed stuff like an ornately carved altar in a...

Anybody who rates this lens less than 5 stars probably doesn't have it!

John W. Gilbert, Amazon
25 December 2011
  • Summary: I read the 2 star rating on here and just shook my head! My guess is, that the poster is a fanboy of a specific brand (nikon, canon, etc.) and bad mouths other brands, or simply does not have the money for this very expensive piece of glass. I shoot it on my Nikon D700 and the pics. it produces are nothing short of stunning. Manual focus? Yes, of course it is. But it is so buttery smooth and user friendly, virtually all of your still shots will be in focus.

It's OK

Sawyer "HollisterRanch", Amazon
28 November 2011
  • Summary: Ordered/use this for my D700/F5/D3s PROS Expensive! Few pro photographers have this on their cameras (sets you apart). Turns heads. Nicer box than most lenses. Zeiss meet up groups. CONS Manual focus (= lots of wasted film/time/energy, and most importantly $$$). Lucky to get 3 in 36 is in perfect, sharp focus. About fifteen hundred more than I should have paid for it. Hard name to pronounce. Heavy (relatively). Old-looking (e.g.

Some pleasures just keep on giving . . .

Valerie Scruggs "phrenic", Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: I've had my Zeiss 21mm 2.8 ZF.2 lens now since December of last year and yet I remain hesitant to pass along any of my findings to the general public at large. Please, don't miss understand me. It's not that this amazing lens has failed to amaze me a million times over since then, in a million different ways. Nor is it a sign that I haven't yet made a full assessment of this finely crafted work of art.

Erstklassiges Weitwinkelobjektiv

Hans Merkel, Amazon
15 June 2013
  • Summary: Dies ist nun das dritte Zeiss-Objektiv, das ich mir für meine Nikon D700 angeschafft habe - nach dem Distagon T* 35mm f/1:2 ZF.2 und dem Makro Planar T* 100mm f/1:2 ZF.2. Ich bin auch von diesem Objektiv absolut begeistert, weil es nicht nur sehr scharf bis in die Bildecken zeichnet, sondern auch natürliche, schöne Farben erbringt. Die Fertigungsqualität ist, wie bei Zeiss gewohnt, ausgesprochen gediegen. Dieses Objektiv ist sozusagen eine Anschaffung fürs Leben.
