Pros: Exceptional quality (both manufacturing and image). Wide open, it is already near top performance. Close-up capability (1:4).

Cons: None.

Opinion: Size and weight are impressive; then again, it is a f/2.0 lens, and the full aperture is very useful. Acquiring focus is quite easy, given the image clarity and perfect mechanics. Color is slightly warm. Sharpness is near-perfect over the whole field at f/2.0 already. Bokeh is also very good, making it an excellent portrait lens. Close-up performance is also very good.

Pros: Optical yield

Cons: Mf

Opinion: After a year of use I want to say two things about this lens because I saw copies flagged as perfect pass on the used market for less than 1000 euros... I am not at all authoritative and I would not like to think that I consider myself such but I have experience of years of goals of "high lineage" , especially medium bright canvases, which are my passion. Having said that, I think that those who want to experiment with the highest level of optics have a really good value for money on the used. with the limits of course of a 135 bright manual focus that to show its potential needs to be sealed to perfection, the perfect shots will not be many but when the fire takes it is a show. very detailed apo microcontract, Zeiss colors and creamy blurry. from what you read we are almost at level otus 85. although relatively less bright. For those who use sony there is to consider as an alternative the excellent 135 1.8 GM that would seem to be even sharper in the center!

Pros: Everything you've always dreamed of in a lens, and all together!

Cons: Little stuff, the usual front and back caps not level

Opinion: It is very difficult to review a Zeiss-Cosina, who has never possessed them does not have valid terms of comparison, then quibble on the 135 Apo Sonnar without using Hyperbolas is really a feat! We simply Talk about an incredible lens that has no rivals in its focal and perhaps not even in the other, a masterpiece of optics and mechanics that can make you fall in love even those who do not like the manual MAF. The sharpness is already astonishing to TA, and from edge to edge, leaves really open-mouthed! The colors are the absolutely natural of Zeiss with nuances that manage to move, the bokeh is textbook. Try to imagine the sharpness of the Nikon 200 F 2 coupled to the fuzzy creamy and silky of the Nikon 85 F 1.4 AFD, add a color palette that more realistic you can not, and here you are in the hands of the 135 Apo Sonnar! Do not look for comparisons, there is nothing like this, not the good 135 Art or the excellent Nikon 105 f 1.4, let alone the Nikon Defocus that the comparison are Knick. The Price is relatively high but absolutely beneficial if we think about quality. Handling The Ring of MAF is a thing of initiates, it is demultiplied to make an incredible and very soft, fluid all'unlikely, a pleasure in absolute. Lastly, I wholeheartedly recommend the Classic series, at least for this model. The MAF Ring of the Milvus, accomplices the O-rings of tropicalization, is slightly less soft, less lustful, and this also has its importance. For Those who are already Zeiss users I spend only two words: this lens is better than the phenomenal albeit 100 Makro Planar, and I don't add anything else...

Pros: Stunning! A scalpel! Sharpness out of the common parameters, real color rendition, for those who love the background blur: a cream. No kind of disturbance or distortion, very precise fire ring, sliding but not sled: a real, massive jewel!

Cons: As far as I am concerned: Requires 6d machine switching to 5DSR and purchase Zacuto Pro 3x Viewfinder!

Opinion: The dream for years... Arrived today, November 5, 2018 (now it is difficult to find new, 2 orders, two refunds for supplier left without... The third is gone). It makes an impression already as object: really massive and built according to perfect Deutsche Optische technologie, even if Made in Japan. Proven, alas I will have to change machine, since I love pushing the equipment to the limit... and for precise focus closer will need a zacuto 3x viewfinder. Proven with Kenko Pro 300 DGX 1.4 x multiplier and I find myself a monstrous 189 mm! The Blur is noted, the shots freehand will be reduced in number, no matter... With the extension tubes, even cascading, the macro images are impressive. Reduced depth of field? So what? Program stacking shots Helicon Focus Pro: And it snaps to maximum sharpness, at ISO 100-F 4. Extension Warranty (as if needed...) on Zeiss website. The Mercedes of DSRL lenses? No. The Bugatti.

Pros: Chromatic Rendering, absence of aberrations, contrast and precision in the reproduction of the detail, a delightfully fluid focusing ring, precise at the right point.

Cons: For someone it might be a against manual focus and lack of stabilization, in fact the only cons for me is the cost.

Opinion: Objective to say the least exceptional, in my opinion by far the best 135 mm available on the market, apochromatic and able to make the best both in the portrait and in the landscape. With extension Rings is also used effectively in the macro field and still life. I'm in love with this lens, a must for photography enthusiasts.
