Zeiss ZE 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar for Canon EOS released for sale
I just learned from Carl Zeiss USA that the Zeiss ZE 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar for Canon EOS has been released for sale in the US, which means it should show up in the channel this week.
Update Jan 26: the ZE 100/2 is now in stock.
You can order the 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar from B&H Photo , a smart move if you want one soon; I suspect that it will be a popular lens.
The 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar is a standout performer in the ZF/ZE lines. It’s a reference lens whenever I test new cameras or lenses, with corner-to-corners sharpness wide-open at f/2, as well as gorgeous bokeh, a flat field, and high performance close up and at infinity.
There isn’t really anything else like it, nor anything else I’d rather shoot in that focal length range (unless I needed autofocus).
