Great lens. Zeiss lens = premium quality

Bob, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Picked this lens over a Canon 100mm macro. The extra money is well worth the quality of the pictures. Did a lot of research and the manual focus was the only downside. Once I got used it no problem.

Unbelievable Image

  • 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

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Exceptional quality macro lens

bgrand, Adorama

  • 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

Awesome lens

Spam, Adorama
6 October 2011
  • 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
  • Cons: Pricey but worth it

Fabulous Lens

  • Excerpt: Okay this is a manual focus lens so if you hate manual focus it's not for you.The output is beautiful for very shallow DOF, the bokeh is gorgeous! You can get very sharp pictures throughout the various f stops so a lot of creative abounds. It is well built and has a very smooth focus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
