Thank you for this comparison. How does it look in the corners? I find that the biggest difference between a good prime and a good zoom is that the prime is sharper in the corners especially at wide apertures.

Yep - pretty much my experience too.  My 100/2 MP experience is that it's extremely uniform in sharpness across the frame - even wide open.  Hence there is no real hesitation to shoot it at f/2 even if your subject is off-center.

Looking forward to someday getting the 135/2 Zeiss to replace my very good 135/2 AIS Nikkor . . . .
