Sold my last EF lens yesterday and received this one in the mail today. Took a few snaps of my friend's car in his yard to try it out and gosh, this Zeiss is a blast.

just went through every page of this thread - looks awesome. I'm picking up a zeiss 50 1.4 tomorrow (and selling the 24-70) - wish me luck!

is there much variation in these lenses (sharp copies/not so sharp copies)?

Just picked one up the other day - this thing creates ridiculous bokeh! I love it.

I use it with the precision focusing screen but does anyone have any tips for focusing on moving subjects?

Pretty obvious from the last one that I'm missing focal points and still suffering a bit of 1.4 syndrome where I can't resist using it wide open even when the situation would dictate it's inappropriate. lol Small steps, small steps; one at a time. :p

Yes, I did. It is a very safe country with extremely friendly people. Travelling without much hassle is possible there. Highly recommended. Sent you a p.m.!
