Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar as a Landscape Lens

The Zeiss 135mm f/2.8 APO-Sonnar is covered extensively in Guide to Zeiss.

One of my goals for my upcoming trip to the mountains is to put the Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar to use as a landscape lens, where I expect it to be a superlative performer.

As its MTF chart shows and real-world images confirm, its performance qualifies it as perhaps the best lens available today for Canon or Nikon. Available for about $2122, mandatory for anyone who wants the very best DSLR optics.

The downside (or upside depending on usage): manual focus. So on that basis it’s not for everyone .

Holy cow. These are measured results, not fantasy graphs as from most vendors.
