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. :o

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.
