Re: Zeiss 100mm makro planar f/2, fringing and f stop advice

Until the OP responds, I offer this: My copy of the ZF 100/2 delivers outstanding imagery except in those specific, classic situations where axial CA is accentuated:  high contrast silhouettes with wider apertures;  you want to see the lovely out of focus stuff in front of- and behind the thing that's in focus, but those OOF shapes are contaminated with color fringing that doesn't go away until f/11 or f/16.
