Me neither, but the Nikon is certainly an amazing lens, and shouldn't be dismissed so harshly.

I would like to know if the ZE 15 has a hard infinity focus (focus locks at infinity with ring turned all the way), and field curvature, if any, at f/2.8. These two factors are especially important when shooting Auroras in pitch dark conditions.

I can't speak to the field curvature, but focusing with live view..I have to back off from the stop slightly to get sharpest focus, very similar to my 21mm.

Pretty tired...and can't really do waterfalls straight out of camera, here's a processed shot from the Zeiss 15mm. Shot with a Canon 5D II and a polarizer @ f/11.

It's a joy to use, typical Zeiss all the way.

Just placed an order with Kenmore Camera in Seattle. I got lucky - they had one copy!

Thanks Joakim, wasn't the best conditions for shooting...hopefully I can post a couple more though in the next few days.

Congrats for you, but why doesn't Zeiss deliver first to the people who have ordered one months ago?

Good question.

Note that Kenmore Camera is an authorized Zeiss dealer, so perhaps they received a couple of copies as part of their initial quota.

I just called Kenmore Camera - they have one more copy (Canon mount) available through eBay. Call them quickly if you want them to hold it.

Another from yesterday's trip...not a ton of water or color, but still beautiful.

Yes, very nice.

I can't wait to get mine (and hopefully before all autumn colours are gone).

Well, there was a batch going out (from which mine came from). Zeiss was saying delivery by mid October, I assume this was to dealers. Hope you get one from that batch. I ordered mine in March, so it seems like it's been an eon.

The colors are mostly gone for me already!

Again, not a particularly fantastic use of the 15...but I did shoot the same spot with my 16-35 II a few days earlier. No contest between the two.
