Hmmm, better corners & 17cm mfd with the ZF ... that could be meritable ... good enough to lighten the C/Y 28/2.8 from the bag ??


The corners are only better ate wide apertures. At f/8-11 you'll see no difference. I didn't find the 17cm MFD particularly useful with the ZF25 because of the funky field curvature that can make the bokeh rather unsightly. I know Lotusm50 disagrees, but I wouldn't buy this lens again to use it for close-ups. The ZF28/2 probably works better for close-ups, although I believe it also has FC (haven't seen examples though).

The C/Y 28/2.8 focuses close enough for my taste (25cm) and it's quite a bit compacter and lighter than the ZF25.


+1
I never liked the nervous bokeh of the ZF 25 from the shots I have seen posted in this forum.
Wondering how the bokeh is on the CT 28/2.8 and 28/2 Hollywood?
z.* 28/2 has FC.
