Zeiss Distagon ZE 35mm vs. Canon 35mm L

Hello All,

I'm contemplating getting some high quality primes for a 5DII and I'm thinking about starting with the 35mm Zeiss. I know that the Zeiss primes require manual focusing (and that the camera can confirm focus). I haven't done a lot of manual focus work, but I like the 3D quality of the images I've seen from the Zeiss.

I'd like to hear opinions from experienced users on image quality (and any practical issues) regarding the the Zeiss primes vs. the L primes -- especially the 35mm.

Many thanks,
-Hans
