28mm
Review Date: Sep 20, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Beautiful, contrasty images. Very sharp. Vignetting not a problem a couple of stops down. Extremely well built.
Cons:
None

After struggling with various mount adapters and focussing screens to use Contax Zeiss lenses on a Canon 5D2, this lens is great to use. Brought back everything I loved with Zeiss lens - high contrast, 3D and colour pop. Very different imaging characteristics to various fast prime Canon EFs I use. Focussing is fast and easy with confirmation in viewfinder. Handling the all-metal Zeiss is a very pleasant experience. This Zeiss, together with another fantastic manual focus lens - a Voigtlander 40mm f2 - are my most used lenses now.
