The Emperor's New Clothes aka the E Mount Zeiss 24mm
Sep 17, 2011

For those of you not familiar with this cautionary tale...

Never before have I seen it as evident in a camera forum as I do now with the current Zeiss 24mm talk.

It seems the more a lens costs the more people will mindlessly defend any possible flaw it might have. It amazes me even after seeing it in the past with the obvious flaws of the Nikon D70 and D200 bodies. Keep in mind I still use a D200 and love it but the flaws of it are quite obvious even without the in your face bad bokeh samples I keep seeing from the new E mount Zeiss.

Maybe bad is just too hard a word for some of you to stomach? How about harsh with a busy background at wide aperture settings? Is that better?

Honestly if you love the lens and other qualities of it hold a greater priority for you then get it, use it, love it, and live a happy life. Don't expect everyone to fawn over your images when you put a subject in focus and a busy background near it out of focus.

Your clothes are magnificent after all. Only the best of course.
