Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1,4/50 User Reviews

I have just tested the Zeiss 50mm 1,4 and Canon 50mm 1,4 on my Canon 1Ds Mk3. Focus was approximately 1 metre on books on a shelf. At all apertures (1,4 to 8) the Canon was the clear winner (sharpness/focus) with the Zeiss appearing rather soft centre to edge. The Zeiss is being returned. This was by no means a scientific test, but rather what one could expect with your 'average day to day' usage at close range.
