Excerpt: I work in documentary and reality television and this lens takes the production value of my images to the next level. Canon glass is fine, but zeiss gives you a cinematic look that you won't see elsewhere at this price point.
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Superior image quality
Excerpt: I took the same images with the Canon 24-105L at 100mm and this lens, both at f4 and could see a difference even in-camera with much more background/foreground separation and better color from the Zeiss.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Summary: I'm not a pro yet I think to be the closest thing to a pro might be an amateur. If I don't work professionally with photography is just because I have already another safe job AND a home loan to pay.
Excerpt: The Zeiss 100mm MP lens is the finest macro lens I've ever used, hands down. It is sharp wide open, with exceptional micro-contrast and detail from the center into the far corners. The rendering of this lens is what sets it apart from others, with a smooth transition to out-of-focus areas.
Pros: High Quality, Micro-contrast, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
Excerpt: I had a Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro that I sold. If you really really must have auto-focus you should definitely get that or the Sigma. I love this lens. I love manual focus. The bokeh and micro-contrast are splendid.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Summary: I found out some one used my computer a few days a go and wrote a silly review on this lens. so I erased it and now trying to correct it here. I think in absolute terms , this must be the best lens ever made , it is super sharp with great micro contrast to boot even at f2 wide open.
Pros: probably sharpest lens ever made , no distortion, superb micro contrast.
