Image quality is one of my highest priorities when lens shopping and this lens, if stopped down a bit and the focus shift is accommodated for, has excellent IQ. Bokeh and flare performance are especially good.

Really liking this lens, both for optical quality and for its construction as well. Â This thing is built like a tank and feels like it was carved out of a solid block of metal. Â Very (!) smooth focus feel, with a decent amount of focus throw to help in precise manual focus.

I own the Zeiss Otus 55mm, and now this lens. It's a great alternative. It's focusing is too quick, but it's very sharp (and small).I would definately recommend.

I had the older model and sold it several years ago and regretted it after reviewing some of the images it had produced. I recently bought a used Milvus 50mm f2.0 zf.2 lens in beautiful shape and its even better than the older model. Made like a tank and very easy to focus.

I made a good choice on milvus 50mm. Very sharp photos, as so far I have taken very few photos with d800. The result is better than Nikon 2.8 24-70mm. I also carry 21mm. Waiting to take more pictures on D5.

I just got this lens today and I am *very* happy with it thus far, truly a work of art. I am a professional commercial photographer and I bought the new 50/2 Milvus mostly for food and lifestyle shoots that I have been doing for years, I feel the F2 aperture will allow for great effect on high end...
