Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T*

21mm
Review Date: Jul 16, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,819.00 | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: Great build and finish. Metal lens hood is a nicely designed and easy to attach compared to most Canon hoods I've used. In general, a wonderful lens with one little problem, at least this copy.
Cons:
The corners are not sharp.

Since I have a copy of the 21 f/2.8 CZ lens I decided to compare the two and it was an eye opener. The CZ is much better in the corners especially at f/2.8. Still quite noticeably better at f/5.6 and even f/8. I gave up there and decided to return the lens as it offers me no advantage over the CZ version. Hopefully it was just my copy but it would be wise to check the corners if you decide to purchase this lens.
