Great images as usual here! Haven't been posting for a while - busy times! But here are a couple of recent shots:

Too much saturation in some shots (for my taste that is), but great photos nonetheless!

Hi all,

I'm hoping that all you knowledgeable Zeiss people can help me make up my mind?

I have the option to purchase a secondhand 100mm MP for 880 (normally 1380 new in the UK) but the copy for sale has slight rub marks of the anti reflective matt black paint near the mount. Would this seriously affect performance? Apart from this, the lens is perfect and comes with all the original paperwork and box.

I'll be using it on a Nikon D800, so any comments from D800 owners who have this lens would be most welcome.

Thanks

Mark

It works very well on the D800, although focusing is touchy, as with all the fast Zeiss lenses. With good of technique and a bit of practice it should be possible to get a good keeper rate.

The matte black paint I presume is on the inside? You can repaint that with no problems. Get a matte black paint from a lens parts shot like microtools, or even a small tin of model paint.

Hi Carstenw

Thanks for the response. I have a 14 day returns option on the lens, so may give it a try.

When you say the focusing is touchy..is that the lens in general or specific to the D800?

That is any narrow depth of field lens on the D800.

Haven't been doing much "fun" photography lately but since I need to justify the incoming A7/A7r purchase for my girlfriend I need to start to be more active on this area. Couple of shots for D7000 & ZF25/2.8:

Yes, my experience is that it is very difficult to get optimal sharpness with the ZF.2 100/2 wide open when shooting handheld.

Hello

I have follow this post for a long time but since I don't own any Zeiss glass I have never posted. I had the opportunity to try out a Zeiss 21 ZF.2, I think this was the best one I got.

thanks
Jake

Hi, I'm new here (and still very much learning photography in general), but thought I might post something a little different than a lot of what I've been seeing. And yes, I realize I'm a little weird for doing portraits with a 50mm lens.

I've cranked the sharpness and clarity way higher than I would usually, but I think it gives a nice effect in this particular image.
