  • 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.
  • Pros: Build quality, the way it feels, the details it can render
  • Cons: pathetic lens cap - insanely poor design

  • 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).
  • Pros: Very Sharp, Build Quality, Precision Instrument
  • Cons: Cheap Lens Cap
