A new lens just arrived via Fed Ex for review and it is a beauty. The Zeiss ZM 85 Sonnar F2 (see this lens at Amazon) is absolutely gorgeous. One of two ZM lenses made in Germany, this lens may just be the sweetest portrait lens I have ever laid my hands on for 35mm photography. I will be shooting it for the next 30 days and a review will follow. For now, I will leave you with the first two images I shot with it just minutes ago. Opened the box, attached the lens, and headed for my sons room. No light outside due to rain and the grey dreary weather but he had a 40 watt table lamp on his desk. I snapped off a few shots at F2, ISO 1250 and was delighted with the quick results. I also have a 75 Summicron here so it may get interesting 😯
Can’t wait to shoot this lens more! The full review of this lens will be up sometime in February!
