Re: Considering the Carl Zeiss 24mm

I bought the Zeiss 24 and regretted spending the $$$. So I sent it back. I then regretted sending it back because I liked the images being produced with that lens. I've now bought it again and I am keeping it. Love it. I've tested it at f/5.6 against the kit lens and have decided that the Zeiss is well worth the money if you want sharper images . . . and this doesn't even get at the huge benefit in lower light photos. A shot I took the other night with a bunch of 6th graders out looking for frogs in the wetlands using my 5N and the Zeiss 24 (with the flash turned all the way down):

EXIF data notes that the flash did not fire. I find that hard to believe since it was dark. Hmmm.
