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.

Really fine lens

By

from North Georgia  -  Photo Enthusiast

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

Now I know why Zeiss kicks butt!

By

from Baldwin, NY  -  Pro Photographer

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.
