Mike -- How do you think we all ended up with Zeiss lenses?
.... IQ plays a major role in lens choices, and the Zeiss 21/2.8 is one of the better available, right up there at the top of the pile.
Choices, choices! As you can see, on this simple choice there are well reasoned opinions on both sides, and great photographers to back those opinions with images!
Jim, comprehension is beginning to sweep over me ... there's something in comments like yours and Lars' where, among an impressive inventory of lenses owned and available within a given focal length/range, Zeiss get the most use. There are good reasons because, as you say, these are discerning and talented photographers.
