Excerpt: I bought this lens to use on my D7100. It's probably one of the finest lenses that I've owned in a long time. The images are clean and tack sharp. To manually focus is easy with the in-camera focus indicator and it is silky smooth.
Excerpt: I use Zeiss ZF.2 lenses with a Nikon D800. I have the 35mm f/2.8 and the superb 25mm f/2. I also use Zeiss lenses from a Hasselblad on this camera. A full frame camera demands excellent optics. This 18mm lens is absolutely superb.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I've had this lens for a couple of years now. It renders color and contrast with great crispness and clarity. Some minor distortion, vignetting, and slight color fringing along high contrast edges when wide open at f/3.5...as is the case with most lenses in this focal length when opened up.
Summary: I also have the 15mm from Zeiss, which is much more expensive, but I'm just as happy with this lens, the image quality and sharpness is amazing, lighter, and 1/3 the price. It also works well with existing filter systems, where the 15mm does not. Highly recommended!
Excerpt: Incredibly sharp out to the corners, great contrast. A far superior lens to any of Nikon's equivalent or even close focal length lenses. I have the Nikon 16-35mm F4 VR zoom and it is very sharp, though not so much as this lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I've used this lens a few times with night landscapes. I feel i got a really good deal on it. The details are incredibly sharp which why i chose Zeiss. An excellent lens for serious landscape photography.
