WOW congrats David! Please more photos, I'm thinking about buying one for my 5diii
Thanks, I'll do my best to keep posting. It is a stunning optic. In just a few hours of testing around the house I am very impressed by the sharpness and contrast at f/1.4, and I've yet to see a hint of CA.

Finally!! I have been waiting to see this show up on POTN for so long. I'm glad to see it in great hands. David, I love your first shot here. I can't wait to see more shots from this lens... even if they are just snapshots around the house.
David, do you prefer using this on 5d3 or the a7?
Thanks for the encouraging word! I don't plan to junk the thread up with more stuff-around-the-house shots, but I had to make an exception today.
The a7 and a7R are particularly well-suited for shooting Zeiss ZE lenses (with metabones adapter). The EVF performs so well that it feels much like an optical viewfinder, but with user-defineable focus peaking to aid manual focusing. I also appreciate its diminutive size and weight. But, I enjoy shooting Zeiss lenses on the 5D III as well. For now the a7 is my dedicated walk-around camera with no tripod bracket, and I plan to use the 5D III for tripod-based shots.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a good-weather day here in KC, so hopefully I'll have more Otus shots using both cameras very soon.
