Zeiss 50/2.8 macro for portraits?
Oct 21, 2012

Would the Zeiss 50/2.8 macro due out next year also make a good portrait lens?  I know it is slower than the SEL50/1.8 and without OSS, but wanted to know if would be able to do double-duty in most situations?

The quality of the Zeiss 24/1.8 is so phenomenal in all regards I'm wondering if the SEL 50/1.8 will really hold any advantage over the Zeiss 50/2.8 macro, beyond probably video and certain very low light situations?
