Pros: good color and contrast and 3-D image quality if it is focus correctly and no chromatic aberration.
Cons:
screw driven, slow, noisy AF. severe chromatic aberration. inaccurate focus

Well ... I am a big fan of Zeiss lens because I feel it gives more 3-D look. However, this lens has some negatives when pixel peeping. First of all, it is a screw driven lens and the AF is slow and noisy. I also found out the AF is inaccurate, but this can be my camera, or due to the screw driven AF. And it got pretty bad chromatic aberration. However, the picture quality is good if it is in focus and no chromatic aberration.

Pros: Sharpness
Cons:
Abscence of USM

Having Minolta 85 f1.4G for a long time, I cast doubtfulness on this one until I got mine. Very sharp and well build
