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!
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.
Spectacular natural contrast and sharpness, only a few cons

Summary: Everyone should know by now how high quality Zeiss lenses are. The only worry about getting it through Amazon is that it might be a fake from China or something. This didn't happen to me, and I knew it wouldn't because Adorama filled the order, and Adorama is trustworthy. So the Zeiss I got was definitely a Zeiss.
Summary: This is lens is what I expected when investing in a wide angle ! Sharp from every corner this is a very precise and quality kind of tool. is made for Pro-Photography. It is not cheap but is worth every cent. Carl Zeiss ia a brand apart when you decide going for quality optics.
Excerpt: Superb optics, sharp and crisp, it captures the light better than my eyes. 82mm filters are costly but you don't need the more expensive slim types, the wide flange avoids vignetting with standard filters hence your money can be spent on quality glass filters. My Lee 100mm filter system also works well without vignetting issues.<br />I use it for architecture so edge distortion in fx image mode was difficult to get used to but soon manageable with practice.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, German glass, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Summary: This 'review' is meant to help hobbyists and professionals considering an ultra-wide angle for 35mm full frame Nikon or Canon bodies. Except for the excellent Lloyd Chambers reviews (for which you need to pay) there is very little information available for this lens, nor will you see it stocked at most camera stores for test shooting purposes.
