Hello,

Any comparison with the Nikon AFS 58/1.4 (with film or digital body such as D4 or D800/E)?

Thanks.

Leica is what I would do if I want MF. MF body and a MF lens. Canon does everything possible to make people stop using Zeiss lenses - they even no longer allow to replace a focusing screen.


I just replace my focus screen on 5d3 with super matt type, I can also choose other manual focus screen to be replace with. Its just a 10 minutes job.

Anyone have any insight as to the availabilty of the Otus 55/1.4 in the ZE mount? My local camera store indicated to me today that stock is really scarce and no one at Zeiss Canada can give him any prediction of availability except sometime in 2014.

My Otus ZE should be delivered tomorrow. Assuming OOPs has mended its ways and is no longer predominantly a storage facility

Depending on which shots we examine, the Otus sometimes has very high levels of vignetting wide open.

That's the one thing that Zeiss couldn't exorcise from their 35mm line, Otus included- though one could accept the extra vignetting as part of their signature 'look', and it can usually be corrected easy enough.

Still, definitely glad Sigma saw fit to try and tackle it, though it is a little worse in the Art than it was in the EX.

vignetting is a tradeoff, and ev is more easily corrected than what is left if you hold size constant and try to make vignetting go away.

Zeiss could have exorcised it, at the expense of either i) a higher price tag for the same resolution and contrast across the field; or ii) a drop in resolution and contrast at the same (or lower) price tag.

Hence the Sigma.

A viable alternative would be the Zeiss 50mm MP. Picked that one up second hand and it just blows me away everytime I use it.
