Pros: Good image quality (color, contrast, 3-D)
Cons:
slow, noisy screw driven AF

Well ... I like this lens. The only complain is the screw driven AF. However, this is better than the 85 Zeiss. The AF is more accurate, and much less chromatic aberration. Image quality is very good, very sharp, good color, good contrast. I like this better than the Canon 135L.

Love my 135f2L for a long time and very reluctant to get this bulky and heavy one
Did not even bother to look at the images until later..
Wow, can't believe my eyes and it is razor sharp

Pros: Sharp, great color and bokeh. Almost no color fringing wide open. Has that Zeiss 3D look or snap. Great build quality and finish. Balance on camera fairly well when used with Sony a99. Metal lens shade.
Cons:
Heavy and a large. Focus is a tad slow on older Sony cameras on a77-a99 it has decent focus speed. Its fairly quiet for a screw-focus lens but a update to SSM drive would be better.

I really enjoy using this lens. Its great for portraiture or shooting at low light events. Sharp, great color, and boken its my go to lens for shallow depth of field. Its a little long for some peoples taste but I love the images it can capture and try to find a photo to use it for. Downside is that its large and heavy with the hood attached some people think its a 200mm.
