Thanks orchidblooms !

Great shots, great lens, and true to your moniker -- magnificent blooms !

How would you compare the new 135 to your 100 Makro: Performance (specifically and predominantly), but also to a lesser extent handling, focusability (new word) etc.

If you could only have one of them, (the position I am in at the moment, for use w/D800E) which would you choose ? If macro capability were not an issue, would your choice be the same ?

I have used the 100 and am enamored of its capability and "magic", but have been waiting for the 135 before pulling any trigger.

Of course, I realize that they are both stellar lenses, and being a lifelong Zeiss owner, my expectations of the new 135 are very high, as is my own hands-on opinion of the 100.

Thanks again.
