Default Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* Lens

Got my Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* Lens a week ago. This lens has some rave and some mixed reviews out there, but I love it. The subjects tend to pop out in a 3-D effect in a way not seen with any of my Canon lenses. The manual focus with AF confirmation is so much easier than I expected.

As with any other new equipment, I have been too busy to play with it much upon arrival. I prefer to shoot nature and landscape... but I have a few shots that I managed to squeeze in this week.

I think I'll be loving this lens for fashion. Your #4 pic really made my choice. I bet she was a gorgeous walker.

Zeiss lenses have their own unique qualities. I like how the colours turn out. I do not have ZF lenses but have few adapted contax lenses which are very good specially the 50 1.7.

No big experience with this lens till now, but looks, it can transfer the feelings on the matrix of your camera...

This Zeiss is good for poppies.
Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE (offkoooz ) + Canon 5DMkII, ISO320, f/2.2, 1/320s



And another poppy...
The same junk, the same ISO, f/stop and shutter time.
