This lens captures amazing and rich colors, that will blow everything else out of the water. Sometimes there's a tad too much color and you'll have to turn it down. Note: attached photos are not RAW captures. They've been processed, though not extensively.
the build and IQ are excellent as you would expect from Zeiss, sharp across the range, excellent control of CA especially compared to other fast wide lenses, very little to no distortion, a little bit of light falloff when you shoot wide open but again compared to other lenses it is fantastic, the lens is made of steel so it is a bit heavy for its size, the focus is a bit stiff but that is good because you don't have to worry about lens creep.
as you probably all ready know this is not a 1:1 macro but still is capable of delivering fantastic close-up's, I have not tried using it with an extension tube yet so I cannot say much about that.
this is definitely a lens that lives up to its reputation, I highly recommend that you rent it and try it out to see if you can deal with the manual focus but I am sure the IQ will win you over once you see that manual focus is not that big of a deal, well depending on the types of shots you are taking.
the attached photo was taken at the St Louis Art Museum at f/2, its a bit noisy as you are not allowed to use tripods or flashes and I had to bump up the ISO.
For landscape use to infinity, if managed right, is great also. Like many of the reviewers mentioned, the metal hood is kind of in the way if you have a polarizer filter there and you want to turn, even the snap in and out is a struggle with the lens cover. Oh well, I guess the optical quality is still worth the 5 stars. Can't wait to get my hands on the new 135mm f2.0.
