Excerpt: Besides having "pop," this lens is quite sharp. The following is an enlarged picture of people on the east side of the East River in Queens taken with the Zeiss f1.4/50mm Planar lens from the Manhattan (west) side of the river.
Excerpt: This Lens is outstanding.I had my doughts at first,because of its manual focus.But the Sharpness of THIS Lens pulls you into the subject to find that sweet spot of share perfection that it can produce.Whoe! I stop working with My L.100 Macro on a D7 to play with this ziess on a nike D7000. Mondane Objects come to life. I love it!
Excerpt: great lens for videography use. Very smooth focus ring. However, for photography use the f-stop from f1.4-2.0 is not very sharp and would not be suitable for pictures sizes larger than 5x7 unless further editing is done inside Photoshop. At f2.8 and above the clarity is very crisp especially at f3.5. overall great lens.
Excerpt: This equipment is not for every body, is just for pros. Warning, this lens is extremely precise and extremely sharp, if you don't like quality don't buy any of this optics, because no matter what lighting situation you are working in this lens will always give you quality and the results will always be stunning.
Excerpt: Since it doesn't autofocus, you need to buy the split focusing screen to have any chance of getting a focused picture. Even then, it's 50::50 except in bright light with sharp contrasts to work with. However, it is absolutely top quality and makes one jealous of the quality of glass pros use, especially at sports events. The bottom line is that there is a difference, a big difference, between the mundane lenses we generally use and something like this.
Summary: hi taking photos is a hobby of mine by the past few years it became close to my heart so I started spending more money on it . that being said carl zeiss optics = rolex watch . the only thing you can say about owning a master piece is woooow . I mean the colors so vivid sharp really sharp it gives a life to the photo. the pros :sharp,beautiful color,built quality is very classic (if you owned an old lens from the 70s you ll know what I mean).
