| p.1 #8 · Zeiss 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar vs Canon EF 135mm f/2L |
The 135mm focal length, for me, would be something that I'd buy to photograph people. Not flowers, not landscapes; people. For me, manual focus is necessary for photographing people, so I'd never consider the Zeiss no matter how good it is.
If I were to switch to Sony, it'd be right at the top of the list of lenses to buy!
I've often tried focusing my 50 f/1.4, even at smaller apertures like f/2.8, and failed miserably (through the viewfinder). The DOF is far too shallow to be accurate. I've obviously had more luck using the live view, but obviously that requires a tripod and a static subject. What's your secret?
PS, I don't understand your comment about not considering the Zeiss...it is MF.....
