hi Harj. the zf 50 is a great lens & a bargain. so is the zf 85. the only images ive seen from oly land that can compare are from zuiko top grade, which are much more expensive.

for 25mm, it came down to the leica or a zeiss zf 25 2.8 @ roughly the same price. the zeiss focuses much closer andhas a better build. i still want one, but the 1.4 of the leica won out. its the only af lens im inclined to use. the sharpness w/o is a revelation. just a great lens. expensive yes, but nothing compares.

hey ss: yes, the good glass is expensive. but its worth it. and if you get used to using manual lenses, there's lots of great older prime lenses out there for cheap, relatively speaking getcha a rokkor x 50 1.4.

so imho, for 25, 50 & 85mm, i got it covered as good as it gets. now i just need some gorgeous models.

Hi, G

I haven't used Zeiss camera lenses but I've worn Zeiss eyeglass lenses for years. Everything they're known for in optical quality applies to their eyeglass lenses as well. I can just plain see better with them, and their high index of fraction makes the lenses very thin and lightweight. Curiously, they aren't that much more expensive than the competition.

Ted

PS: I understand that Nikon also makes excellent eyeglass lenses, but we won't mention that in an Oly forum...

Hi G!

Thanks for posting the pic and I've seen quiet a few shots from the D now which show what a good lens it is - a very good altrenative to the 14-35F2 and at a 1/3 of the price.

Good thing that panaleica rumour was rubbish as I can see the price on the F1.4 going straight through the roof if it had been and with or without the red badge on the barrel!

Cheers

HArj

:? :O
