With the introduction of the Makro-Planar T* 2/50, Carl Zeiss expands its existing ZE line of lenses for EF-mount cameras. Owners of EOS camera models can now create detail-rich macro images that allow the effective use of both sharpness and unsharpness to be deployed as creative elements. These fast, versatile lenses are also perfect as standard focal lengths for portraits or still life photography.
Even in tricky lighting situations such as dusk, the Makro-Planar T* 2/50 creates distortion-free images thanks to its extraordinary fast aperture. Whether capturing an insect resting on a flower or the moisture on a piece of fruit, these lenses allow a degree of sharpness that was hitherto impossible. Even with a maximum aperture opening and a low focal depth, the desired image can be easily isolated from its surroundings.
The macro lens renders objects in close-up on a scale of 1:2. To enable such detail, this lens includes Carl Zeiss's acclaimed "floating elements" design. This special lens alignment enables high optical performance across the entire focusing range, from 0.24m to infinity.

Love this versatile and efficient lens. Great price and value.
Love this lens it is sharp and very beautiful. You really can't go wrong with zeiss glass. Has been a great piece that I use all the time in my arsenal of zeiss lenses.
The 50mm Zeiss Macro joined a large number of L lens and while it takes excellent photos it does have some shortfalls. In low light it does not perform well on my 5D iii. Colors in low light are disappointing and not as good as my L lens. Limited use for moving subjects.Was going to purchase the Zeiss 100mm but will buy the Cannon 100mm is instead Build quality is just outstanding,photos in good light are excellent,but not much better ,if any than the L's. Manuel focus is easy and precise
I wanted a superior lens for casual and professional shooting and after testing a few brands came away with this winner! the IQ is stunning because it asks for very little post work. I custom balance all static and event shoots and the color i get in fnish with this lens on my 5D2 demands little or no post!!!! LOVE IT, love it LOVE IT! I first purchased the Sigma 50 ( sold it after a few events) then the Canon 50L before this lens blew me away. the Canon is a GRAT lens, so dont get me wrong, I just could not get over the Zeiss results in the side by side photo comparisons with the 50L. the Zeiss is a Makro and an F2.0, but the Bokeh was way too silky and smooth to about not having it close to me. this is a manual focus only lens but the AF confirmation is very good at aiding focus for you. I have actually shoot this in a wedding for Cake and Ring shoots. it just works the way the research and other customers say it does. it opens my eyes more to photos and slows me down to contemplate better shoots.
