Hi Guys,

I need some advise, about 50mm f/1.4. I saw some reviews that shows this lens is not so good if compare with Nikon AFS 50mm f/1.4 or same IQ as D version... this is true?

yuriylux, thank you! I received mine and and if you f/1.4 at infinity of a bit far from the subject the results are very good....

If you have aperture priority 1,4-2,0, the Nikkor AF-S 50/1.4G- best choice. Planar 50/1.4 ZF.2, the aperture 2,8 - 8 - provides an excellent sharpness of letting a very nice color. On the open hole - it works like a monocle, a very romantic image. I think the Planar is better suited for landscapes and still lifes.

Thank you Zeiss Man, I think I will try this lens this week.

Although a great lens, it's definitely not the best form Zeiss. However, it yields great contrast and color.
