  • Carl Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar T* 2/50

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Very Sharp, Build Quality, Precision Instrument
    Cheap Lens Cap

    I've recently reverted back to using DSLRs after using Rangefinders; specifically Leica M8.2 and M9. I'm currently using a Nikon D3s Body which has amazing IQ + high ISO performance (something that the Leica's lack).

    The Zeiss Makro-Planar T*2/50 brings very similar image quality akin to the M-System Lens to DSLRs. This lens is very versatile; I use it extensively to make panoramas, take portraits and macro work.

    What I don't understand is why it came with such a crappy lens cap. For some reason its very hard to put back on and I'm paranoid of it falling off.
