OMG - KR doesn't like Zeiss
Jul 10, 2012

On 50mm/f2 Makro-Planar:

"It is very dense, so I fear that it will be easier to slip out of my hands when mounting and unmounting. The focus ridges all run parallel, with no waffle pattern to stop it slipping axially out of your hand. This 50mm lens is as slippery as snake guts: be careful!"

"I prefer plastic lenses: these Zeiss are too big, heavy and slipper for me. For manual-focus lenses, I prefer the exquisite Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AI-s, still available brand new today."

Well, you heard it right here on DPR: Plastic good. Zeiss bad.
