Re: Zeiss 135 F2 vs Nikon 135 F2 DC

Yea, the Zeiss looks superb. Offhand, I'd put it in similar category as my 200/2G Nikkor, which is saying something, and it pretty much shows how weak the Nikon 135 is wide open on such a high rez body, not that the 135 DC was meant to be as sharpness monster. Nikon definitely needs a 105 and 135 upgrade. Badly.

Now I have to try and figure out a way to get the Zeiss. My lens budget for the year is shot with me picking up the Zeiss 21, Nikon 28 and Sigma 35 all this winter, so it might be a long while...

LoL, no kidding. I sold my Nikon 35mm f1.4G to get the Zeiss 2/25. After that I got the 2/100 and then the 2,8/15mm. Tax return might come to my rescue, but even if you have the cash..Zeiss does not seem to be shipping these puppies out.

Nikon really needs to replace the 135mm. As far as the 200 F2G, this is the same level as the Zeiss 135mm but as far as price, makes the zeiss seem like a killer deal.
