Like them , especially the first one. Why still debating, what's the Planar lacking?

I'm still debating whether or not to switch to the 50L, VERY tough decision!

If you need AF and/or f1.2 the 50L is the best choice IMHO.
I've had the 50L myself, but I like the zeiss better.

I just really really like the bokeh and rendering in general of the 50L, especially for portaits. I'm still undecided really, especially since the rendering of the ZE 50 is also amazing and it's probably the sharpest lens I've had so far.

I think I might just take the 5D2 and ZE 50 across Europe and North America this summer and decide after that. Since I upgraded to full frame I've only had one lens and I'm afraid that it will be like this for some time to come - therefore choosing between the ZE 50 and 50L is quite a big deal to me. ;)

How do you feel with focusing and recomposing with this lens,
there are particular expedient on 5dmII ?
I believe to buy 50macroZE soon.

I agree. The 50L was one of my favorite canon L primes. I liked it even better than the 85LII I had. It's great for portraits.

Focus/recompose is something I mainly do with my AF lenses, because I only use the center AF point of my camera.
With the zeiss lenses, I depend on the precision focus screen which I really like. Or sometimes liveview.
No more need to recompose.

I had 25/2.8 distagon while back with d700...and i found that my eyes are really weak towards MF. I really really like how zeiss lenses draw pictures though and now I have a 7D and thinking about the zeiss lenses again. How does 50MP and 100MP perform on a 7D? I have seen so many great photographers here using 5d2 and the results are great. some of them use EG-S focussing screen for precision, while is there any screen for 7D to aid my eyes?

pardon me for the bad english :)

the 7d does not have a changeable screen, but if you use tripod and liveview no problems, on freehand its a bit slow as teh focus pull is long but the lens is super great!!

I see...yes I ended up selling my 7d for a 5d2. now 5d2 has interchangeable focus screen, how does a EG-S screen works? I have seen something like split focus screen works but not this super precision matte screen. How do they help aid focussing manually?

Here are a few shots taken while I was experimenting with my new flash.

Wide open and straight out the camera.
