reviewswhat are people saying

"This lens is amazing. The quality wide open just stuns me everytime. Between MFD and about 5 feet, it is easy to manual focus. But something between 20 feet to infinity is pretty hard to focus through the view finder."

"The Zeiss lens is light, compact, extremely well-built and renders incredibly crisp, contrasty images. The mechanics of this lens are a delight to experience...in short, an incomparable lens!"

"Heavy (1/2 size of 24-70 but weighs just as much); Have to be able to focus yourself and do manual exposure (Live View + zooming in) but focus confirmation also works (not always)."
