Carl Zeiss 50mm-f 1.4 manual lens ??
Apr 8, 2011

Hi guys,

A quick question about the 50mm Carl Zeiss lens. Is it worth the money for maybe just a little more sharpness??

I presently own the 50mm- f 1.4 G automatic lens with the D-700. Unfortunately, I find

the Nikon lens not very sharp when shooting landscape pictures. For relatively close

shots it is not too bad. I also find that the Nikon lens has very poor depth of field.

Am I too critical ?? Would appreciate your experience and thoughts about this issue.
I should also mention that I usually don't blow up pictures above 16x20 !!

As always, thanx for your help,
