^ Filters just make Zeiss worse. Contrast and Saturation is what Zeiss is famous about.
21mm is nice. The one I don't have :-(

Amazing shots, they are the tipping point for purchasing a Zeiss for my 5D MkII. No I just need to decide 18mm or 21mm


Gear List:
Canon 5D MkIII
24-105mm f4L 70-200mm f2.8L Zeiss 50mm 1.4 Zeiss 18mm 3.5 Zeiss 25mm 2.0 100mm 2.8 Macro USM

I have both. :) There will be times when 21 isn't wide enough.

Yeah, I'm planning to replace my 16-35L II with the Zeiss 18 ZE and get the 50 makro
to replace the 50L. Just sold my 35L. Just checking if I can get 100 makro
work as my tele instead of 70-200 f4L IS.
To my eyes Canon lenses just simply are not the same. And I really do enjoy
the manual focus. Wasn't sure about that, but after two weeks of daily use,
I'm sold :)

Wow. Really great shots - thanks for sharing. That Zeiss really does seem like something else!

Incredible hotel room: I bet that cost a pretty penny.

Nice pictures, however shadows are very very dark on my display, especially ruining the first shot.

Is it just me ? Or is it wrong gamma/tagging/calibrat​ion ?


1Dx, 5D2 and some lenses

Agreed.

If I wasn't a wedding shooter I would sell most of my canon glass.
(I just need AF at weddings.)

I had the 50L too (great lens), but now I've bought that zeiss 50mm f2 makro which looks even better.

Zeiss lenses just render more beautifully.
