Personally, I find the rendering of Zeiss lenses very pleasing. They have strong contrast, bold, warm colours, extraordinary micro contrast and that legendary "3D pop" that is caused by the way the lens renders the transition from in-focus areas to out-of-focus areas. This was the other reason for me to get Zeiss glass. And I'm very happy with the decision

+1. I like the Zeiss a lot for the same reasons. If anyone is considering a Nex 5n or 7 to supplement (or replace?) their Leicas, I find the micro contrast a real boon when using focus peaking. The peaking lines snap in and out quite clearly and precisely, even more so than with other lenses, making it very much an RF experience.
