Re: And you thought Pentax lenses were expensive


This is an expensive lens, but there's good reason, this lens is designed to have practically no faults and is a true aprochromatic design, it's probably the one of the best lenses ever made and is apparently tack sharp from F1.4 across the frame, OOF green/red fringing is non-existent.

I would love to see a full review of this lens. Is it worth the money?  Definitely!  If you're a pro working often in studios and doing seriously demanding work printing  50X30 cms  and you want the best, this is it! this lens is the closest to perfection that you can get and is a lens for life and knocks spots off Leica equivalents (which are after all standard but refined designs ) for a similar price.

Tap Zeiss 55mm 1.4 on you tube to watch the video.
