Hi everyone, I just got this lens a day ago and I love this. Anyway, this lens seems heavy and I need time to get familiar with.

Congrats... mine arrived on Friday... now waiting on the 5Dsr to be released/shipped. The new lens is nothing more than a doorstop at the moment :(

have fun with yours and post some shots.

Does anyone have any experience with this lens and a teleconverter?
Don't know why but i am becoming more and more interested in a 2x teleconverter, i am curious about how well this lens will work at almost 300mm focal length.

Both of them at f/2.
I am only shooting f/2 with this lens

And how is it?

Has anyone shot film with this lens?
I am interested more in B&W (Kodak Tmax 100) or Color (Kodak Portra 160)

Well... I haven't had a chance to take anything other than some snapshots. That being said... I can't wipe the smile off my face.

Have a look at this shot... 100% crop @ F/2.0

If I would have taken this shot with the Canon 85LII or the Canon 135L ... the CA would have been off the charts with the 85 and noticeable with the 135. With the Zeiss 135.... there isn't any... and that floored me. Just fantastic!!!

Click on the image below to see the full res shot. Only sharpened the image in LR @ 60... just my standard sharpening setting.

Hehe, all of it's users already know how good it is :))) and mostly had the same reaction. I remember that i was smiling for almost 3 months! and not just because it's sharpness but how god this lens is at f/2.
I wanted to buy Nikon f/2 DC but when i saw how bad it was performing on D800... Zeiss 135 f/2 became my only solution.

Second shot was taken with Voigltander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II N, at f/1.4
I just wanted to share this lens with anyone who might just be interested in a special lens :)

Seriously.... if you are in the market... buy this lens. Best of the 135's out there IMO.

My wife was nice enough to stand for a few shots. Nothing but garage light... @f/2
