Re: d800e - and now Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO Sonnar in my hands

Congrats orchidblooms,

Well, since you're asking, and I myself am considering this lens vs the 100 Makro (on a D800E) . . .

How about:

1. ClosEST Focus:

A. Portraits (faces) as well as objects, wide open f/2 to demonstrate max bokeh and image                 separation, AND

B. some stopped down for absolute maximum "cut yourself" sharpness and overall performance. Use lowest ISO, of course . . . let's see what this latest Zeiss can really do !!!!

2. Close Focus (not closest)

3. Random Medium Distance

4. Random Infinity

Along with your own personal impressions of it -- results, quality feel, handling, focus, image view thru OVF, and Screen, etc etc.

In other words, as you said, just put it through its paces, baby !!

Also, If, as implied in your post, you also have the 100 Makro, pleeez compare the two.

Very Best of luck and success with it -- enjoy, enjoy, enjoy ! (did I mention, enjoy ?)
