You are such a talented photographer that I can not see the difference between $1000 Zeiss lens and a cheap kit lens! Very nice set ! Every lens in your hand should give great pictures!

Thanks for the kind words. I do shoot RAW and these pics have been edited. But straight out of cam the Zeiss images definitely are sharper and much better color and contrast than the other two.

I'm sorry for off topic but I'm on market getting a fast prime. I can not decide between Zeiss 24mm and Sony 35mm which will be available soon.

Would you think the Zeiss is worth the price tag if we don't talk about the different focal length ? Thanks !

I love my Zeiss lens, it's one of the reasons why I am shooting with a Sony NEX system. As I mentioned before the clarity, sharpness, bokeh and contrast are awesome! For me the image quality I am getting is similar to my Canon L lenses. For me it's definitely worth the price I paid for it.

I haven't seen the reviews for the Sony 35 but if it is like my SEL 50/1.8 it will be an excellent lens. For me though comparing the IQ of the SEL 50 vs. the Zeiss, without a doubt the latter is superior.
