Cons: The Price Manual Focus Lens

Pros: Outstanding Build Quality. The focussing ring is very smooth. Even the sunshade build quality and locking mechanism are impressive. Image quality is stunning as soon as the image is in Focus (might not be such easy at close distance with F/2 with manual focus and very thin depth of focus...)

Summary: An exceptional lens on all aspects ...at exceptional price

Cons: Can't think of anything much. Sometimes bokeh can be a bit fussy, but this rarely happens. "Only" renders to half life size.

Pros: A stop faster than most at f2. Amazing sharpness and contrast from wide open. Lovely focus action and build quality

Summary: One of the best lenses there is and technically almost flawless. All the usual Zeiss character but with no spherical aberration and sharp from f2. It is easy to focus with no focus shift at all and makes a fantastic close up lens as you would expect, but doubles as a cracking portrait lens on full frame.
