Replace Zeiss 24 with a Canon EOS lens?
Oct 31, 2012

I really love the Zeiss 24 for its sharpness but I dislike the feel of it in the hand compared to using the larger lenses by Canon. I also dislike how the focus ring just keeps moving past infinity and beyond the minimum focusing length. Another complaint is not knowing what the distance is of where the focus point is (if I ever wanted to do some focus stacking).  Thats another thing I like about using my Rokinon 85 1.4 and the Canon 100 2.8L (which I haven't used yet)

I am contemplating on selling the Zeiss and getting myself a similar focal length but by Canon.  It would work out fine when I receive my AF adapter and everything works like it should. Any suggestions? Comments? Thoughts?
