The Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm f/1.8 ZA showed an outstanding performance within the APS-C test and it manages to keep most of these qualities on full format sensors as well. The resolution is very good at f/1.8 and great to downright phenomanal beyond.

This is an amazing lens. I use it on the A7R and the results are amazing. The only lens that can compete with it its the Zeiss 135 2 APO, but without AF.

I have some nice glass, but this is the absolute king of all lenses. If you want to read a technical review than go check out the myriad of praises online including my favorite Sony/Minolta review site- dyxum.com. This lens is often praised as the best 135mm period..

I'm not jumping on the bandwagon with this lens because its a Zeiss. I have used this lens a couple of times with mixed results. I had taken this lens out one day and popped it on my A77 for a Parade local in my area. I would say about just less then half my shots were good and usable.

Allready at 1.8 high contrast and sharpness. The Nikon- and Canon-likes reach this level at f: 4 or 5.6. You don't need to stop down for a lot of higher contrast and sharpness. Ideal for setting subjects and objects free in cities and landscapes and to use depth of field in a creative way.
