The 60 f/2.8 G Micro is a superb lens. However the Zeiss 50/2 is a macro lens also and is one stop faster - doesn't go to 1:1 though.


That's true... anyhow to have both is a bit redundant considering that for shooting people I do not need 1:1

Thanks again Mark! This is very helpful. Just a few observations:
- the two Makro Plannar (50 and 100) are shinning in the test (as well like on the field)
- Nikon 28/1.8 is better than Nikon 35/1.4 @f4.... seems that Sigma 35/1.4 is the real winner here...
- the latest and greatest 105/2.8 VR when used for non-macro applications is left behind the old 105/2 DC...
