Carl Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar T* 2/50 review by telecommuter

  • Summary: This is another of the utterly splendid Zeiss lenses designed to mount onto the Canon bodies without any adapters. What a piece of photographic gear, it is just so properly manufactured. Image rendering is superb. It is one of the two or three lenses (all Zeiss) which out-resolve my 21mp body. This has the desirable effect or eliminating any manner of dithering or guessing by the camera body - what you see is what you capture.
  • Pros: Build quality, the way it feels, the details it can render
  • Cons: pathetic lens cap - insanely poor design

Carl Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar T* 2/50 review by ioiooi

  • Summary: I've recently reverted back to using DSLRs after using Rangefinders; specifically Leica M8.2 and M9. I'm currently using a Nikon D3s Body which has amazing IQ + high ISO performance (something that the Leica's lack). The Zeiss Makro-Planar T*2/50 brings very similar image quality akin to the M-System Lens to DSLRs. This lens is very versatile; I use it extensively to make panoramas, take portraits and macro work.
  • Pros: Very Sharp, Build Quality, Precision Instrument
  • Cons: Cheap Lens Cap
