Huge thanks to Zeiss USA

The Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO Sonnar in my hands today - makes up for the 10 month wait for the 15 zf.2

I will be shooting with this lens all weekend / d800e starting this evening -

Lots of glass in this lens - it is beautiful and i can see immediatly it will be much easier than the zeiss 100 makro-planer to focus... much longer throw...

are there any considerations - type of shots folks would like to see this run thru?

i will do my best to run this beauty thru the paces

i can see this lens will be 'bright' and will really bring my images to light!
