Zeiss 35mm F/1.4 Distagon T*

35f14
Review Date: May 31, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, color rendition, Zeiss look
Cons:
size, price

The Distagon 35/1.4 is a truly great lens. It is razor-sharp and provides the exceptional color rendition with the tangible zeiss look and feel.
One of the downsides for me is the size and weight. It is not that big or heavy, but I would have appreciated a more compact design (probably not possible from the engineers point of view).
The second downside is the high price, especially when you compare it to the Samyang 35/1.4 for 400 bucks which is caomparably/equally sharp (they say).


All things considered I'm very happy with this extraordinary lens.
