DRode - I don't think the whole advantage of any of these lenses is in their resolving power. The Sigma 30 is very sharp in the middle, but there's noticeable fall-off toward the sides and corners unless the lens is stopped down to 5.6 or 8. The big advantage I see in the Zeiss lens is its color, which I think is far superior to the Sigma. Also, the Zeiss seems to have a wonderful microcontrast which I haven't seen in the Sigma. Possibly a careful photographer could compensate for the color and microcontrast during processing. From what I've seen, the Zeiss is capable of producing significantly more impressive images. But the biggest question of all remains - am *I*capable of taking advantage of the superior qualities of the Zeiss?
