Re: Why Zeiss doesn't make Autofocus ZF ZE lenses?

With lenses like these you'd be looking at where the depth of field lies rather than just the plane of focus. That is I'd say the main reason why asking for auto focus is somewhat misplaced. Auto focus as it is, only tries to get the focus plane on your subject. That simply is too limited to be useful.

Perhaps in the future auto focus systems will become smarter and be able to get the depth of field in the right place for us. Who knows...
