Thanks to this thread, I wanted to get hold of a 1.4 85 planar in either CY, ZF or ZE version. Finally, I succeeded and got myself a christmas present (mint ZF model) that fortunately could be tested in the woods prior to putting it away until Dec 24.

It feels a bit strange to have a lens from "the dark side" where everything turns the opposite way. Nonetheless, no regrets. I am positively impressed.
Here are two shots with my ZF 1.4 85 mm adapted to a 5DII via Fotodiox adapter. Both at f 1.4 showing the impressing ability to separate subjects from the environment:

I used to reference zeiss mtf charts against those lenses which I already have, then compare against those which I intend to buy. That way I have a feel on what I will (or will not) be getting.. :-)

I actually prefer the ZF 85/1.4 over the 50/1.4, but the rendering is similar.
Here are a few from the same walk with the Zf 50/1.4 on D700.

There were three light sources: a distant street light, a sunlit moon, and the stars. I think the street light was dominant.


In this case the moonlight dominates:
