I would consider myself a beginner photographer and I love this lens. For some reason, I saw so many good reviews about this lens, hence went ahead and bought it. First two weeks; horrible.

I've had this lens for awhile now. Not as good as I expected from Zeiss. Possibly I received a bad or poorly calibrated unit. Most of the Zeiss lenses I have rented will go to the infinity mark and truly be in focus.

Good old standby - faithful and quality Zeiss.

I bought this to use it mostly for video on my A7sii. I love the manual focus and the build. It feels strong and heavy, how a real lens should feel

One of the best lenses I have ever owned. I enjoy this lens more so than a lot of the Canon L Glass I have had. You have to take the time to learn to shoot with this, it is no easy task being able to manual focus fast moving subjects in changing light conditions.

Well Zeiss is awesome, but if you're manual focusing a 50mm on a 35mm body... your eyes will die and then you can say goodbye to being a photographer. I would get this one instead:

First thing's first: 99% of the bad reviews for this lens are due to user error. Great lens. Stupid fast if you're willing to sacrifice a bit of sharpness. The manual focus is buttery and overall build quality is top-tier. My favorite lens, period.

Amazing lens, beautiful images.

Unreal quality for film. Amazing contrast and color for portrait and street stills. Slow focusing ring but is necessary for the depth of field.
