This has to be one of the best 85mm lenses from any brand. It envies nothing to the other 85mm f1.4's; be it Sigma or Sony. Super solid construction, balances great on FF bodies. It will last several lifetimes. I can't understand the reviewers that state that this lens is not sharp at f/1.4.
This is an amazing glass, fast and sharp, don't let the manual focus scare you away. Only hard decision is now to shot a portrait with 135 or 85mm ?
Made in Japan but the German technology is there!This is my first Carl Zeiss lens that i purchased, and i dont regret it.As my late father told me, Carl Zeiss lenses are the best!I used this lens primarily for portraits in schools.
amazing ,sharp, but I need more time to learn up focusing
This lens is well made. The focus is smooth and precise. The color rendition is excellent.
Ok, gotta say this is a whole new experience for me. This is the first lens that I have owned where I felt like I owned some really high-end engineering. The images are very very sharp.
I recently bought a secondhand example of this lens in Pentax mount for my freshly acquired Pentax K-1. Absolutely brilliant. Frighteningly sharp from f2 onwards. It gives really nice colour rendition.
I love this lens. The lens is not perfect when compared to the Otus or Milvus versions in terms of outright optical quality, but at 85mm this is a portrait lens and for portrait work this lens is preferable to the either alternative. It renders in a way that that is perfect for portraiture.
Very good midrange lens
Went on 3 photoshoots with this particular lens. I will say its very well built, seems dead solid and the focus ring is amazingly smooth. However, for performance. I had CA in every shoot so far.
