some people are mentioning the Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar ZE Macro as a replacement for the 50mm 1.2 or the sigma 1.4, any feedbak please?
I have both, and while I love my 50L for some stuff you can't even really compare the two in terms of sharpness, the Zeiss absolutely smokes it, especially on the edges. 9.5" minimum focusing distance/Macro capability on the Zeiss is awesome too. And honestly I rarely shoot my 50L below F2 so I don't feel like I'm missing much. The focus ring on the Zeiss is butter smooth and has hard stops and Macro and infinity. As for the bokeh, I think the 50L might blur a little bit better, but the Zeiss bokeh is beautiful in it's own right.
I guess the biggest thing is whether or not you can live without AF, as the Zeiss is totally manual focus (although it does have focus confirmation). For video, the Zeiss is superior without a doubt, same goes for sharpness. I still love my 50L for some stuff though.
