Hey y'all,

Have any of you Nikon people shot with any of the Zeiss lenses for Nikon? I'm a huge fan of the Zeiss lenses for my Contax, and I was considering getting the 85mm f/1.4 or the 100mm macro f/2.

Here's a listing of 'em at B&H:

Thanks!

Sam

So, in other words, Zeiss wants me to spend more money on a comprable lense to the Nikkor version. Zeiss has always been known as great glass, but Nikon compets strongly with them in the vast majority of all depts.

Not definitive of all of them, but here's a comparison of various 50mm lenses for the Nikon mount: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/50-...ison/index.htm

from Chip's link
--------------------
These lenses have similar, actually almost identical, designs and performance, but different names and mechanics.
Zeiss owns the trademark to the name "Zeiss" and to its trade names like "Planar" and "Tessar." The patents to these designs expired many decades ago. Anyone may manufacture and sell a lens using expired patents, but they may not use the trade names like "Planar" unless they get Zeiss' permission.
Because the designs are almost identical, so are the performances. All of these lenses are made to sufficiently tight tolerances to realize the full performance of the designs.
