Zeiss 35mm f/2 Distagon T*

35mm
Review Date: Jun 24, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp wide open, build quality, manual focus feel, contrast, colors.
Cons:
Vignetting wide open (though I like it), price.

I bought the EOS mount of this lens brand-new after pouring over lens recommendations and reviews, including Lloyd's excellent site.

Great lens, very smooth manual focus action like anyone would expect. So far I have had zero problems with the lens or the hood, great all around.

What might concern some people is the vignetting at f/2 - it can be rather strong, but easily corrected. Frankly I like the vignette so I usually never correct it. Lightroom 3 has a profile for this lens and will easily correct any faults, though half the time I leave the shots as-is.

Great color, great contrast, a decent price (for a Zeiss) - a very nice lens in a great focal range on my 5D2.
