Conclusion: Zeiss claims that the lens' large angle of rotation and precision mechanics enable it to be focused accurately, and in use this turns out to be the case. The former point, together with the weight of the glass inside, mean that the focusing action has perhaps more resistance than expected, but for more considered tripod-based work this isn't an issue. Only if you need to quickly move from one end to the other does it become a problem.
Pros: Exceptionally wide maximum aperture, Available in Canon and Nikon fittings, Pleasing, simple design, Photo sharpness and clarity are superb
Cons: No autofocus, No image stabilisation system, Focusing action is a little resistant, Extremely expensive
