They’re coming!
The nice folks at Zeiss have shipped both EOS mount lenses to me for evaluation. I’m going to compare the following:

50mm
ZE 50 f/1.4 vs Sigma 50 f/1.4 vs Canon 50 f/1.4 vs Canon 50 f/1.8

I don’t have access to the 50 f/1.2L, I’ll ask around and try to get one.

85mm
ZE 85 f/1.4 vs Canon 85 f/1.8 vs Canon 85 f/1.2L

I own the 1.2L, will borrow the 85 1.8.

I know I’ve said I’m going to be doing reviews. Honestly… I probably won’t review camera bodies. I just don’t have the time or frankly the technical knowledge. I will offer editorial on camera bodies as I play around with them. Anyway, there are 50 reviews of every camera body out there.

What about Lenses?

I’m completely into comparing them. It’s a pretty quick process and I love shooting. It won’t be an issue.

Thanks a bunch Zeiss, it should be fun.

  1. Hi,

    How is the test going? Any results yet? I´m very eager to see the results since I´m planning on switching my 85/1.8 to 1.2 or a Zeiss 1.4. The Zeiss is very appeling because of it´s smaller size compared to the EF 85/1.2L.

  2. Hi there,

    I got the Zeiss ZE 50mm few weeks ago, and i have to say I pretty happy with it, very precise Focus ring,focus confirmation is perfect, work well in high contrast,
    Have been using it on a 5D, and works very fine. impressive color fidelity…

    I tryed it on 5D mkII and didn’t work, seems we need a Firmware update.

    here is a link to some of my galeries using the Zeis and the 85 f1.2 L as well.
