Some of the many factors involved with Zeiss lenses are color reproduction and contrast. So you do need to shoot colorful subjects and also some subjects in harsh lighting or at the edge of light to showcase what the lens can do.
In flat, low-contrast lighting, the colors/contrast gap between some Zeiss lenses and some CaNikon lenses can reduce. You don't get to see the full picture, so to speak.
I don't totally agree with that. Saturated colors in high contrast scenes can reduce the gap between Zeiss and others as well, and in scenes with relatively flat lighting the higher microcontrast/local contrast of Zeiss can be more apparent (in comparison to other manufacturer's lenses).
valid point on saturated colors.
However, In my limited experience (7 months with different CY/ZE glass), I have had difficulty seeing the differences in flat light though. They are there, but very hard for me to see them compared to situations in contrasty light.
