Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T*

21mm
Review Date: Jun 30, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,800.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharpness (edge to edge!), Contrast, Close focus (9"), Build Quality
Cons:
Expensive, Large, Some Vignetting (but that's to be expected at this focal length)

Simply put, probably the best 21mm lens ever made. It puts any other lens I've tested in this range to shame. Sure, it's pricey, but in this case you get what you pay for!

I would say don't bother with this lens unless you're shooting FF and can take full advantage of the edge-to-edge quality.


 
Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Oct 20, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,499.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Image quality, build quality, price point, features, relatively bright viewfinder, 9 frame buffer.
Cons:
1.6x crop, small viewfinder, RAW conversion software (FVU).

Simply an excellent product from Canon.

If you do plan on purchasing this camera, you should seriously consider purchasing a RAW conversion package like Capture One LE or use dcraw with Fred's linear action. The Canon RAW converter (FVU) simply does not cut it.


 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

ef50mmf_14usm_1_
Review Date: Sep 17, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $299.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Extremely sharp, nice bokeh, light weight, USM, f/1.4.
Cons:
Quite difficult to use the official lens hood + polarizer at the same time.

A great little lens for the price.
