Comparison: Zeiss 100/2 Makro Planar to Leica 100/2.8 APO, Nikon 105/2.8G

Just published in my Guide to Zeiss ZF / ZE Lenses is a 3-way comparison of the Zeiss 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar vs the Leica 100mm f/2.8 APO-Macro-Elmarit-R and Nikon AF-S 105mm f/2.8G macro.

I decided to make a fresh comparison after being asked several times in the past few months about how the Leica 100mm f/2.8 APO-Macro-Elmarit-R does by comparison with the Zeiss 100/2 Makro-Planar. The Leica 100/2.8 APO can only be had on the used market, as Leica ceased making “R” gear in ~2009.

Well, it’s not a sexy scene, but quite instructive nonetheless.

NOTE: I expect to present comparisons with other Zeiss focal lengths over the next few months (and Leica 28mm lenses also), but I’m currently swamped with the new Zeiss 15/2.8 Distagon, and the Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 arriving shortly. Also, I might reshoot new material if I deem the Nikon D800 or 5D Mark III significantly better enough to warrant shooting new material on those cameras instead of using the Nikon D3x material from Death Valley.

Nikon D3x + Zeiss ZF.2 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar @ f/2
