Would I liked to have seen an optical improvement included with the Milvus update of the Zeiss 21? Well, that question has only one answer for me, regardless of lens model being referred to. Yes.

I rented this lens and the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II to see if the Zeiss was worth the extra cash and whether I could deal with the manual focus on my 5D Mk III. I know there are manufacturing variations from one sample to another, so it's hard to say whether my experience will be the same as your's.
