To my Guide to Zeiss ZE/ZF Lenses, I’ve added a new page showing the performance of the Zeiss ZE 100m f/2 Makro-Planar on the 21MP Canon 5D Mark II with an aperture series from f/2 through f/5.6 on a strongly backlit subject. Regrettably, 21 megapixels is far too low a resolution to explore the limits of the 100/2 Makro-Planar, so patience is in order for a future offering from Canon.
The ZE 100/2 Makro-Planar will be available in early February for Canon (and also in ZF.2 guise for Nikon), I’ll be noting its availability in this blog when it shows up. In the meantime, check out my wish list of ZE Lenses and wish list of ZF/ZF.2 lenses, most of which are in stock. If you’re looking for a very versatile macro lens which is also outstanding at infinity, consider also the Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar.
