Carl Zeiss 2.8/21 from Contax G
Aug 5, 2011

I recently got this lens on somewhat of a whim and am loving it. I actually got it the day after my daughter was born, so most of my shots over the last week have been of her and related subjects. Forgive me the bias, if you can.

I welcome feedback on the lens. This thing is, as far as I can tell, amazingly sharp and has great contrast. I don't see any CA or vignetting, but I'm not pixel peeping, either. I love the output!

However, this lens WILL show off poor focusing (as noted by Ken Rockwell). I have more than a few that I missed focus slightly with.

PP is limited to curves and NR in LR3 except in the first and third shots, where I cropped. C&C is welcome.
