Pros: Product quality, product specifications, reliability

Cons: I found no shortcomings. The only flaw is that we are moving away from reality. We rely on autofocus, on stabilisation, with our hands and our intelligence at the core

Opinion: I have sold off all my Canon optics because they do not meet my needs. The price is just marketing. Although I am a Canon dealer I tried Laowa - a disaster, but cheap :) Works flawlessly when the background is black. I apologised and after some experimentation went back to the Zeiss Milvus. Only those who don't use them or have hands that are out of place can say bad things about Zeiss.

Pros: Excellent image quality for all purposes : High sharpness at all apertures and distances. Weather sealing. Good to excellent bokeh. No distortion.

Cons: Not quite APO, although close to it. A bit heavy and bulky.

Opinion: Probably my best "fifty" on all counts. It is suitable for all sorts of assignments, and corrects the few slip-ups of the previous version (ZF2), namely the yellow cast and the contrast loss on stopping down when shooting against the light. Focussing action is relatively short at long distances, but very precise. The hood is a big piece of metal that can fortunately be dispensed of in most cases, since the front lens is deeply recessed. Suitable for day and night, macro an non-macro (long distance IQ is excellent too).

Pros: Very high sharpness, high brightness, typical Zeiss image, neutral, alive and with very clean colors, excellent anti-reflective treatment, very pleasant blurring, low geometric deformation, not high vignette and only to large openings, MaF of extreme precision, R.R. engraved on the barrel that extrudes, mechanical construction of excellence, tropicalization.

Cons: Front cap that closes badly, tends to come off, high price.

Opinion: Global judgment: very good optics. The Milvus 50 F2 is a patterned optics dated compared to the most modern Zeiss optics, has few lenses and no aspheric, and this gives it advantages and disadvantages: compact size and weight, clean and natural colors, readable shadows, very pleasant blurring, medium vignette, and very high sharpness always in the center, at the edges only from F 4.5 onwards. The mechanics are excellent, very fluid dials, you can operate the diaphragm continuously to make movies (my version, Nikon), perfect lampshade, with velvet carry inside like all optics made properly. The MaF ring stops at the sign of infinity but still allows the MaF indefinitely on my three cameras, and is extremely precise thanks to the very long ride. On the barrel, are e recorded the various R.R.s that you have focusing closely.

Pros: Materials, assembly, extreme sharpness, bokeh, manual very accurate MAF

Cons: Rrmartin 1:2

Opinion: The Lemte is fantastic, there is little to say, and the rest we talk about a Milvus, 700 grams of noble materials assembled to perfection, Tropicalization Vera (on that of Nikon and Canon is better to roll out a pitchy veil), excellent surface treatment of lenses, A resolution and a detail that solve in an embarrassing way the most pixellated sensors while maintaining (I think is a unique case in the scope of the objectives) a moving blurred. Focusing on the Milvus is a pleasure, the long demultiplied helicoid allows a MAF with extreme precision. Ideal lens for generalist use, outputs only with the 50 Makro Planar and you do everything with extreme satisfaction, its playback ratio of 1:2 allows you shots that no Chinese plasticone could afford and the whole thing with Zeiss colors, Zeiss three-dimensionality and absurd sharpness. As for the ratio of reproduction I would have preferred the 1:1 but you can not have everything, and besides the real macro is made with tubes, bellows and Flash dedicated, at that point the lightness of a plasticone makes it successful. In short, it is an incredible lens that knows no rivals in the limited range of 50-58 mm, a lens that you fall in love immediately, a lens to buy also because the value for money is unbelievable. And to finish the usual advice: as soon as bought replace the plugs (the Zeiss ones have always sucked) and put the Nikon, at that point you will be ready to have fun with your new Makro Planar!

Pros: Optical and mechanical quality at the top, bright to be an almost macro (RR 0.5), still quite compact and lightweight to replace a standard throughout

Cons: Nobody if the manual MAF is not a problem

Opinion: I use it on Canon Eos 5Ds (50MPXL) and 6d for when I have to use high ISO values. On the latter I have mounted the slide Eg-S that allows an easy manual focheggiatura, as in the old days (frosted glass). The paired Milvus 250 and Canon EOS 6d is winning and... fun. On the 5Ds returns files with exceptional sharpness and brilliance.
