Beautiful color, depth rendition, and sharpness; smooth focus

Charles, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm very very happy with this lens. Unlike a lot of modern lenses that are only designed for sharpness, this one pays attention to the other important aspects of lens design as well. Not only is it very very sharp, it renders colors very naturally and with fine gradations between similar tones.

This lens is amazing to hold

Ryan Filgas, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is amazing to hold, amazing to take photos with and looks spectacular. If I had one complaint, it's that it is too sharp, yep I said it. In focus photos will not require sharpening and at times you'll have to actually turn it the other way.

A Special Specialty Lens

CKE, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: The Zeiss 100mm F/2 Macro lens is my go-to lens for my in-studio macro work. The lens is extremely sharp at large apertures - the experts agree with my (less precise) eyeball test.... this lens is excellent at all apertures (including at 2).

My new favorite lens

Syberfilm, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I own a Nikon 85mm F/1.4 and a 135mm F/2.0 This lens makes me want to sell both of them now. I know sharpness is not everything but this lens is incredibly sharp. Also the way it renders color and images is just magical. I really can't give this lens enough praise.

Fantastic not so little lens

YB, Amazon

  • Summary: This was the 4th Zeiss manual focus lens I bought. The first two were the 35/f2 and 85/f1.4, and they were the ZF series (not the ZF.2). They were excellent lenses and based on my experience on these two lenses I decided to get another two more lenses.

Amazing Lens

John Bremer, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I have another Zeiss lens, the 50mm ZF.2 Makro-Planar which is itself a great lens. How much I enjoyed that lens inspired me to get the 100mm. Some people do not like the fact that these lenses are manual focus.

Simply Remarkable Glass

John Davis, Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I've owned some very nice lenses from both Canon and Nikon for use with both crop and full frame cameras, and I'd have to rate this Zeiss Makro as a favorite above all others, perhaps in a tie with the Nikon 85 f1.4 G.

Epic Lens

Andre Horton, Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I sold my Canon 85mm f1.2L for this lens. Why would you do that?!! Yes, this lens is MF, however the color representation, clarity whole-frame wide open at 2.0, and Macro capabilities makes this lens unparalleled.

Used this for a year and I am still in love

JJTroy, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: Bought this one as a macro lens but soon used it for portraits, it performed very well especially when you have difficult lighting siturations such as backlighting. You do miss a few shots though, because of manual focus, but sometimes it become more welcome for older ladies, if you manage to have...
