The ZEISS ZF.2 with F bayonet for digital SLRs. Thanks to its electronic interface (CPU), these new ZEISS lenses support all-important operations such as the automatic exposure for shutter priority, aperture priority and program modes. The CPU also supports manual exposure settings, including those for camera casings that are not AI-compatible. Since the lens now transmits the EXIF data such as manufacturer, date, metering system and exposure settings, photographers no longer need to set the parameters manually. These quicker and faster handling capabilities of the ZF.2 lenses are especially useful under hectic shooting conditions.

ZEISS lenses truly come into their own in situations that demand extreme photographic creativity and maximum image quality. Carl Zeiss' fixed focal length lenses are known for their high light sensitivity and precise manual handling, leaving the photographer in full control. The new ZF.2 series will be especially interesting for photo enthusiasts who value creative, high-quality images combined with the comfort of automatic settings.

It's a Zeiss

Superb optics, sharp and crisp, it captures the light better than my eyes. 82mm filters are costly but you don't need the more expensive slim types, the wide flange avoids vignetting with standard filters hence your money can be spent on quality glass filters. My Lee 100mm filter system also works well without vignetting issues. I use it for architecture so edge distortion in fx image mode was difficult to get used to but soon manageable with practice. For scenic and extra wide angle it is great and the bokeh is unexpectedly good as well.
