Owner reviews: Carl Zeiss Apo Sonnar 135 mm f/ 2 Z
Very sharp lens (used on digital cameras from 24 to 50 mpix). Can't think of a sharper 135mm fast lens. Superb construction. Minimal focus distance is quite good. Produces a large image circle when stopped down a bit, therefore it is usable on 0.79x factor cameras like Fuji GFX or Hasselblad X1D.
Quite heavy. Focus ring is smooth but not very comfortable too grip. With this exeptional sharpness and mechanical quality, it could use more that 9 blades in iris.
Probably the best portrait prime lens I have ever used. Although it is not that expensive for the bang when bought new, I would suggest too look for a used option, as sometimes it is possible to find them for a great price.
Extremely sharp with good color & contrast.
One of the best 135mm never build
Buy a second hand.
extremely sharp with good color & contrast
No better lens made at 135mm
