| p.1 #8 · p.1 #8 · Sold: Zeiss 135mm f2 ZF.2 for Nikon. CHEAPEST Ever Listed!! |
No doubt that some of it is the Sigma ART lineup but there are those who are also likely considering the Milvus version which, correct me if I'm wrong, has the same optical formula as the ZF.2 listed here, adds a rubber gasket for "weather sealing", and is $1100 more new than the asking price for this lens.
The 135 ZF.2 is right up there with Otus in quality; microcontrast, colors (especially skin tones), and lack of notable CA make this a compelling lens to consider. Also, if you get really "brave" and switch over to all manual focus it is just my opinion that, after a short while, you won't miss autofocus. There's just a different rhythm to using manual focus with a lens designed for the task and, yes, I realize it's not for everyone. But it might just be for you!
If you buy it for this price there's a good chance that, should you not enjoy using it, you would be able to get most if not all of your money back out of it by re-selling for minimal loss.
Anyway, good luck to all figuring out which lens is for them and GLWS T_Gordon!
