The ZEISS Milvus 85mm f/1.4 ZE is a very good lens. The color reproduction is really outstanding with ZEISS lenses. I just sold my 3 (three) SIGMA art lenses because I could easily see that the ZEISS offers superior color quality. If you want real professional results go with the ZEISS products.

After researching for 85 prime , I stumbled on this . I have not own a Zeiss lens before, but I have hear a lot of amazing reviews about it so I gave it a try. The canon 85 mm 1.4 L is another option, however, for the price, this is the bang for the buck item.

First impression... Just received it today! I've been deliberating about this for quite some time, watching review after review. I was leaning towards the Canon 85mm f/1.2 L USM.....

It is truly an amazing lens. The color in the pictures are so rich and vibrant it looks as though they were processed in Lightroom. I read once that the only complaint people had with the Zeiss lenses is that they make the images look too good.

I was hesitant purchasing the manual focus only lens, but after a week or two, it has become second nature to focus myself. I've owned the Canon 85mm 1.2 II, which was fun to have, but now I love this lens!

This lens will blow the Canon 85 f/1.2 out of the water. Color, bokeh, and build quality for less money. I love the manual focus it really brings back the art of framing.

For starters, I would never have considered getting a manual focus lens. I happened to stop by a vendors table at Shutterfest last month and tried one out on my 5D3. I was hooked and had to buy one. For starters, it is SHARP! And the bokeh is as beautiful creamy as it gets.

This line of Zeiss lenses rivals the Otus line at a fraction of the cost. Optic truths revealed within this heavy, yet beautifully manufactured lens. I love the images it produces. It has that punchy, contrasty Zeiss look with great color rendition and nice bokeh.

I use this lens mostly for portraits. The quality of the image makes me wanna cry: details, colors, bokeh, everything is just perfect. The lens is solid like a tank. And it looks beautiful.
