Manual Focus..No problemo!

Josh Photo, B&H Photo
1 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I was worried when purchasing this lens that the manual focus would be an issue. It is not. Like others say it's smooth and the perfect tension. I can quickly focus the lens for "action" shots. Granted not in an AI servo way but things stationary moving is no problem.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction

Gray Market Item, Manufacturer's Warranty Will Not Work

Angelica Temple, Amazon
27 April 2015
  • Summary: It's a good price, but this is a gray market item. The language of the warranty, instruction manual, and all accomanying literature was in an Asian language, I believe Japanese. If I find redeemable qualities or service, I will consider changing my review.

Great Lens

Adirondacker55, B&H Photo
18 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I agree with others about the lack of sharpness wide open. I find that after testing this lens it starts to get very sharp around f/2.8. I use it for landscapes and food photography, so having a lens that's sharp at f/2.8 is not a problem for me.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Just buy the darn lens already.

  • Summary: I've used a Zeiss Planar T lens before on a 500 CM Hasselblad camera and I loved it. So I had expectations when I bought this lens for my DSLR but they were blown away. I'm a professional photographer and I just shot a series of portraits with this lens and I have to say it just upgraded my Canon...

Really wanted to like this lens. But?

Unanimouse, Amazon
14 March 2015
  • Summary: I compared this 50mm with Canon and Sigma. The Sigma macro at normal distances was tack sharp. The Canon was acceptable within a narrower f stop range. This Zeiss had bad chromatics from wide open to a two stops down. It was only sharp within a narrow f stop range.
