Luka -- Lens focusing (ease of movement) is excellent. Focusing throw is extensive, nearly 360 degree turn, so allows for very fine adjustment. I would say this has superior focusing to the other Zeiss I've previously owned.
The bokeh is the bokeh, so representation is what it is. I like it fine, but I'm not a bokeh fetishist.
Remember, all the previous shots have received some PP and are not OOC.
Here's a shot from yesterday with a brick wall and a few accouterments. This is pretty much a straight shot -- some PP for exposure, contrast and color, but lens profile turned off, so you can see the exact distortion and vignetting. Taken wide open to judge center to corner performance.
I must say I'm impressed. Barrel distortion is low, with possibly just the faintest hint of mustache in the corners, but not enough that it would affect architectural symmetry to a noticeable degree. Corner sharpness, while not perfect, is very well detailed and ready to improve to excellent levels with reduced aperture. All four corners are equal in sharpness -- good build and no element displacement.
Here is the overall shot with a 100% of the center. Next post will be all four corners.
