Pros: Construction, sharpness, focus ring, cost if used, the pleasure it transmits you in using it!

Cons: Flare and ghost, I don't know what it depends on, but on nikon z6 in the backlight my specimen is inusable

Opinion: I do not dwell on the pros already listed by the other users where I found confirmation (build quality, sharpness, micro contrast, colors, using it is a real pleasure!). Small big mole there is my specimen on the nikon z6 with ftz adapter, in backlight it is inusable, ghost and flare present intrusively to all the diaphragms, make the shots completely inusable and to be binned (if you do not believe me you see the topic I opened), I do not know if it is the fault of the ftz, in any case it is the first time that I have to bin shots because of the lens , which never happened with nikon 20 afs 1.8g, nikon 18-35 af-s g and nikon 14-30s f4 and rarely with samyang 14mm 2.8. First adventure in Zeiss, first disappointment. Then all the other pros are there and make it a superb lens for all those non-backlight shots! (seeing other reviews online if even in a less marked way than my specimen, flare and above all ghost there is, I do not understand how no one noticed and emphasized the problem) excellent lens but far from being the perfection they say, defects also he has just understand them and know how to overcome them, then he should not defend himself with a sword because he is a Zeiss

Pros: Colors, smooth and soft dial, minimum focus distance, performance price ratio if taken used

Cons: Full-opening vignette

Opinion: Taken at a ridiculous price - compared to the average - and mounted on the Nikon D750 gives huge satisfactions. The colors are fantastic, especially they maintain natural brightness and do not knead. The manual focus is not a problem because it is used almost exclusively for landscapes from f8 to f11 it focuses smoothly with a wide-angle focal. Fluid, lustful, precise. The vignette is there at TA but it is irrelevant, when it bothers you will rise with a click with any post-production program. Don't miss, if you find one.

Pros: THE Wide Point

Cons: nobody considering the ridiculous price of the used otherwise 1600euro for the new was decidedly a con with the capital C

Opinion: Since I abhor at the mere thought of mounting a wide under 20mm, this focal is perfect in full never too long nor too short I do not see a single reason not to take this distagon, it is simply perfect in all and now, for general madness and joy pers you can recover in human numbers. virtually absent distortions vignette does not know what it is (I begin to assume that it can cover even a good part of a digital mediform) micro and macro contrast exceptional that make everything much more vivid almost three-dimensional.

Pros: According to my expectations, knowing already xrchè used to borrow during photographic services. I decided to flank it as a fixed wide angle at the even great Nikon 14-24.

Cons: Nothing Partricolare

Opinion: An excellent glass without shouting at the miracle. Being a fixed clearly, at the same focal point than the 14 24 has some more physiological dots. The other one, however, on his side, everything else... So we're talking about two very respectable glasses. I am not one of those who, pulls the water to their own mill according to that... I am sincere and I evaluate according to their own experience. To those who have the possibility/need, I recommend them both.

Pros: Deus Ex Machina.

Cons: The Caps!? Just take them off before you photograph.

Opinion: I bought it used on the Juza market in October and now I can finally make a judgement. Perfect both from the optical and mechanical point of view. The focus ring with the perfect infinity at the end of the stroke ideal for the starry and not only. The merciless comparison I could do it with the Sigma 20 Art but this is light years away. With the Canon 16-35 F4 L IS a 21 mm and a F 8 if it pulls but up to only about fifty meters, then the power of this lens comes out, especially in the definition of the foliage in the background. In the Nocturnes is a marvel: Point and without smudges from side to side at 2.8, minimum distortion, absent AC, vignetting not received.
