In the history of photography, to extract the most from any format requires a higher resolving lens for smaller formats, period!!! Lenses for 8x10 film resolve less than lenses for 4x5 film which resolve less than lenses for 35mm which resolve less than lenses intended for microfilm applications.

I hope it is not a waste. I just ordered my Distagon T* 2,8/21. I would hate to have wasted almost 2Gs. BUt at least I will look cool. Chicks dig Z Glass.

Crop body generally means higher pixel density so if a lens can resolve more, awesome. Not a waste :D

i'm a little new so you guys may have to correct me, but why get the 50 2.0 when they make a 50 1.4?

also, a 50mm on a full frame camera would equal about an 80mm lens if you put it on a 7D, i don't understand why anyone would consider that a waste?? if would just bring the subject closer right? image quality would be the same right?

Crop sensor and FF image quality will never be the same.

I'm using the 50f2 on a 7D.
For me it was all about IQ, especially wide open and the F2 with macro really made sense for me. It is by far my favourite lens.
The only downside is the lack of precision screen, but with practise I'm more than happy to use focus confirmation, I don't always get it right but I enjoy the whole experience more for this. When I have time and I need critical focus I switch to live view.
There is always the Katzeye screen which I hear is excellent.

The 1.4 is very different to the f2. The 1.4 is more comparable to the Canon 50mm 1.4 whereas the f2 is one of if not the best 50mm lens made for Canon.

You know, maybe the OP just wanted an excuse to buy a FF ? Oops, I bought a Zeiss lens, now I need to go buy a FF camera to go with it. Sounds valid in my opinion. What's the cheapest Zeiss lens I can get ?
