Pros: Incredible, solid and fluid construction in motion. A real zeiss. Great sharpness, soft blurred to Ta. Modest cost

Cons: Minimum distance of maf, chromatic aberration to ta.

Opinion: When I started shooting I had a yashica, and I looked admired this optic without ever having it, now thanks to the ductility of the Ml I can use it with adapter ring (on a6000, aps-c). Of course his death is on a ff, here he becomes a bit too long for his native purpose, that is, the portrait. But it's a real pleasure to use it on fairly static subjects, complicating the mafia with moving subjects too close. On sharpness at the edges I can not say anything, because on aps-c they are not used. Highly recommended.

Pros: exemplary mechanical construction. Sharpness / clarity, depth. Blurry well digradato and relaxing. Price flea.

Cons: MAF minimum distance (1.6m.). Bayonet with C / Y (so you need to use an intermediary adapter ring, or to a permanent intervention of attack change). F8 begins to feel the effects of diffraction. He works in stop-down: from f11 is virtually impossible focused.

Opinion: My first Zeiss.rnC'è to emphasize the fact that it is (are) a tool (tools) constructed (i) in a superlative way: the various components are assembled perfectly with each other, and moving parts flow beautifully than fixed. rnOtticamente is commendable: perfectly sharp focus the parties, and well digradate blurry parts. Crazy color rendering, as 'cruel' for its realism. Has a thrift price absolutely accessible to all budgets (I paid € 240, like new, with box and soft bag leather) .rnÈ rather lightweight and compact (length / diameter content) although the chassis is entirely metallic. The quality of finish is ineccepibile.rnOtticamente: significant chromatic aberrations do not see, I would say that it behaves quite well from this point of view, apart longitudinal AC, especially at the edges of the chrome surfaces or glossy finish (green reflections, blue, purple, purple ... even large, depending on the incidence2C is the absence of 'fixed' parties to hold during its tightening on the camera, which means almost grotesque action in overcoming various flottanze the ferrules of MAF and diaphragms (in practice, try to screw the lens, and you do not have firm points on which to grip with your hand!). Whether using it with the adapter and with the permanent engagement of Leitax, the room does not detect the changes in aperture, and remains nailed to the minimum. This is obviously a matter also missing in Exif.rnLavorando data in stop-down, the eye is affected by the current brightness to the various openings, and f11 on, the camera does not respond practically.

Pros: Very sharp already wide open, vignetting almost absent, solid construction, built-in hood view and removable when you need it, good resistance to flare and bokeh excellent color rendering and excellent contrast and above all, for the shots that gives, is priced really ridiculous!

Cons: This very aberration at full aperture in conditions of extreme light and contrast, focus at least a meter and a half

Opinion: Being a happy owner of a 50 F1.7 Zeiss Planar, was looking for a medium-telephoto bright for my Canon 60d and the choice fell on another vintage Zeiss optics! It 'was a very thought-out and designed, and considering that I have a weakness for "shots studied", I have to say I was again greatly and pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Zeiss 135. You have to work a bit to focus properly subjects being a manual lens and with a reduced PDC mounted on a APSC, but with a little practice and perhaps with the aid of a viewfinder, you do not miss a beat! If you do not fear maf manual, it is a must to have optics that will give you a lot of satisfaction and, in my opinion, is second only all'insuperabile canon 135 f2.

Pros: Construction, brightness, price, manual focus

Cons: No one!

Opinion: I put my hand between the pro maf because for me there is absolutely no weight at all! Using the adapter ring for Canon, with focus confirmation chip, the only "hard", so to speak, is to turn the dial. For portraits is the ideal lens, razor sharp and one blurred very nice, pellet, say so. Other advantage is the strength, solidity of construction. In part 100 Macro L is much smaller, but weighs more, all metal and glass, a truly solid. Another thing that I like very much, is the yield of neutral colors. Each photo gives the colors exactly as they were in reality, not saturated nor out, is perfectly real. I really appreciate this, because sometimes, certain goals, they tend to charge the hue, but I prefer this feature, made a real color. And if one wants to saturate the colors in post takes a second. Last positive note, the price. For rendering, blursand sharpness is comparable to, or slightly below, the Canon 135 L, which costs about 1000 €. I've paid this Zeiss 200, the network if they are even less. If one exceeds the "blocking" of the maf manual is in our hands a MR target, with few rivals.
