Zeiss 24mm being returned to Amazon - Not impressed!
Jan 2, 2012

After having the Zeiss 24mm for 48 hours and lots of playing around with it i am utilising the returns policy of Amazon to return it.

After having massive expectations for a highly priced product like this i had the biggest anticlimax ever after analysing many photos i tried with it using different styles, apertures, lighting, scenarios etc. It just doesn't cut it for £850!

Worst thing in my opinion is the amount of Green CA on a piano keys picture. Was horrendous (and yes i do have the 5N with lens correction and all that turned on and was looking at the jpeg straight from camera).

Highly disappointed after always wanting a Zeiss because of their legacy and bigging it up in my mind.

Sticking to the 18-200 and 16mm and macro for now.
