Depends on the copy
In reply to Dandrewk, 5 months ago

My first copy of the lens was extremely (worse than kits lens) soft at 70mm and I found that out in few minutes. Still I couldn't believe Zeiss can be that bad so I picked up another copy and although not perfect it was night and day when compared to the first one.

So in this case I feel you can't really judge someone's else reaction fully based on your experience.

So you folks are -really- judging the lens after two hours of usage? Or... PRE-judging the lens based on some (but NOT all) posts here?

If it's too expensive for that slow of a lens, why was it even ordered in the first place?

BTW, I've yet to find the issues with this lens that some here seem to have. Perhaps I got lucky. Or perhaps I already know that there has never, ever been a zoom lens that is "spot on" sharp at all apertures and at all focal lengths.
