| p.2 #8 · Zeiss 100F2 vs Canon 85F1.2 |
For what you're looking for the Contax 85/1.4 "N" might also be a consideration, I'm not hearing that macro is one of your priorities - great for portraiture/street and also landscape/nature with AF - slightly different optic and rendering than it's Zeiss 85/1.4 cousin - the biggest challenge now days is availability and cost. There is also a review on PP for that lens.
Would have to agree. I was able to get an EOS converted 85n right before I switched to Nikon. Had I stayed with Canon, I probably would have kept it over the 85L. It did not focus well at night, though. Between the 100 and the 85? That's tough to call, since they're pretty different. I always will TRY to pull out my 100/2 in favor of my 85/1.4D, but the 85L is better than Nikon's and there are times you can benefit tremendously from autofocus. The 85L II will focus in near darkness and it's very, very accurate. Canon 100 macro is OK in the sense that it doesn't really do much wrong. But there is no "mojo" with that lens. The Zeiss Makro kills it in every respect (except AF, of course).
