  • Summary: This lens has brought to me everything I wished for. And even more than that. It's better than I could imagine. It's versatile. It's magical. It's a dream coming true. I was a little bit afraid of the distortion mentioned by others, but I am very very glad I bought this lens.
  • Pros: Contrast, sharpness, colour reproduction, low CA, low fringing, flare suppression, close focusing distance, bokeh, build quality, focusing
  • Cons: This lens has brought to me everything I wished for. And even more than that. It's better than I could imagine. It's versatile. It's magical. It's a dream coming true.

  • Summary: I use this lens on a 1Ds M III, and it took me a very short time to adjust to manual focus. In essence this is a special lens. It is special due to the edge to edge sharpness, and the wonderful vibrancy of the colors.
  • Pros: build quality, unique, detailed color rendering
  • Cons: no storage bag at this price point? WTF?

  • Summary: The 21mm is by far the best wide angle lens I've used. As all Zeiss lenses this one is manual focus... but that's not a major issue. I'm using it with the Canon 5D MKII and I'm 100% satisfied. Here are a couple shots I took with the lens.
  • Pros: sharp from corner to corner, built solid
  • Cons: no AF
