Hope the OP got Zeiss 50/2, which is better than the other models that were mentioned.


considering the 50mm 1.8 is a $50 lens and the Zeiss cost $1,500 it should be better !

One must consider which Zeiss we're talking about here. The Makro may indeed be way better but optically speaking, I'm not sure the more common Zeiss Planar design is better at all. Might not be as good as many more modern designs.
