IMO, if Canon releases a new 50mm, it won't be an L version. I think it'll be either equal or slower than f/1.4, have IS, and be around the $600-$800 USD, so it fits right between the 1.4 and 1.2 L. A 50mm L II won't happen for a while and a 50mm w/ IS will just be good enough until Canon can come up w/ an answer to Sigma.
If they were talking about a camera, why would they state "Get your camera ready"? My guess -a new online photo sharing service
I have 3 Zeiss lenses: 15mm. 35mm 1.4 and 135mm f2.
I am thinking of selling the 15 and 35 because:
Anyone has any advice for me?
Well since you don't see any value in keeping them and you don't want them, I think you should just give them to me :-) Selling them will come with all kinds of unwanted stress and you don't need that either. I can promise I won't make you feel bad about it by gloating about how I can take amazing pics using them
Why does everyone respond to dilbert's nonsense? Can't we just ignore his posts and hope he goes away? It would make this forum much more enjoyable.
Sanj, I have found this to be the case with my Zeiss 21mm f/2.8, an incredible lens, which I bought for its true superiority over the Canon, 16-35mm f/2.8L II, in both sharpness and contrast. ...BUT after selling my Canon zoom and purchasing the new Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS, I have the same dilemma as you...the image quality from the new Canon zoom is so close to my Zeiss that I (horror of horrors! LOL), am considering selling the Zeiss. Same deal as you...the f/2.8 aperture just isn't enough that I find myself using it, and the IS and the AF on the Canon are making it my lens of choice.
There is that other reason not to sell the Zeiss, though....I get such real enjoyment out of just holding it and lustily coveting it.
The Canon pales in comparison there!
Sanj...I also notice...eh hem....that you are holding on to your Zeiss 135mm f/2.0 which (according to Dustin Abbott's timely review), blows away the Canon counterpart for sharpness and micro contrast. Very wise of you...as that Zeiss still has practical AND coveting qualities that are second to none!
So...with that in mind it should be easier for you to pry your little fingers off of your 15mm and 35mm Zeiss's and let someone else have a little coveting time, at a discount...c'mon...you can do it...just close you eyes and hold you 135mm...that's a boy.......
Carefully reconsider buying Zeiss lenses. I have had them and with the new Canon lenses I do not think the Zeiss I worth it. My opinion.
Thanks for the reply, but the thing is, I really want to use a manual focus lens (I know, it's all in the mind) so that I am forced to slow down and think more about what I am about to shoot.
So please ignore the brand mentioned and try to help me choose between a 35mm or a 50mm focal length
Canon... has very similar qualities and has autofocus, is lighter and cheaper.
That is exactly how I feel about Zeiss lenses I've had in the past. They are sturdy and cool-looking, but they don't do anything Canon lenses can't do (and Sigma it turns out), and they are heavy, expensive, and lack auto-focus
