35/1.4 ai-s vs. Zeiss 35/2
May 23, 2012

I've got a bit of a conundrum - there's nowhere to rent a 35/1.4 ai-s. I'm almost set to grab a Zeiss 35/2, but there's a nagging in the back of my mind about the Nikon 'classic' look I might get with their 35/1.4.

I'd be using either lens for all-around work, some documentary-style photography, some cityscape / scenics, some landscapes. Primarily documentary. Variable lighting, but not a large amount of serious low-light. I will rarely be below f/2.

Does anyone have an opinion on the characteristics of Nikon's 35/1.4 as compared to the Zeiss? Saturation, contrast, color rendering?

Thanks!
