BestExposures: Just curious, how many folks here got the 5d3 yet? I just got mine :) Would love to chat about "how to's" not just the age old question of Nikon vs Canon
Lucky you, i hope mine 5d will come tomorrow. I pay €3299,00 euro's for this baby. Today i saw the price was raised in the photoshop where i ordered the 5d. It"s now €3495,00 but i'll get it for the ordered price.
JesseBrennanPhoto: WOW, a lot of Zeiss haters. Having a ZF.2 100mp and having compared that to just about everything Nikon has in that range (I work at a camera store). The ZF has a much higher apparent sharpness because of the great micro-contrast, and due to the great color reproduction i find that i can shoot my cameras on the neutral setting and get great results where my Nikon glass needs a little push in the right direction in post. The build of the Zeiss really makes my Nikon glass feel like junk (and I do love Nikon lenses) but holding a 100zf and a 100mm nikkor the build quality is lacking by comparison. Manual focus lenses aren't for every type of photography but if you are manually focusing your Nikon lenses like I was, the Zeiss is a much better lens. Don't hate on Zeiss unless you have actually used and compared their products to the competition.
I also hate Zeiss, but that's becouse of the price. I own the CZ ZE 50mm f/1.4 and the beautiful ZE 21mm f/2.8. They are very sharp and sollid as a rock. My next CZ lens will be the 100mm macro and maybe i'll save for this baby. For all the people who are so negative about Zeiss I would say. Go to a photoshop and rent a Zeiss and you also will be lost like i did.
