My feeling is that the Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8, Zeiss Milvus 25mm f/1.4 and Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 make an outstanding trio for the landscape photographer. I keep hoping that Zeiss will make a Zeiss Milvus 11mm f/4.

Thank you very much for creating the Zeiss lens review website.
With holiday sales, I could finally afford a Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 this season. Wait! Should save up up for a 21mm or a 25mm instead? Maybe save up for an Otus?
I had difficulty when trying to decide by reading other websites. Online lens testing databases didn't address the feel of the image. Other reviewers did not have a consistent approach to support the comparisons I needed. Sure, they compare a Milvus 35mm to a Canon 35mm, but not to a Milvus 25mm.
Your objective data and images demonstrate what is achievable with good technique. Your consistent approach to reviewing multiple lenses makes it much easer to get a feel for how a lens will work and to make some kind of comparison between very different lenses. That is exactly what I was hoping for when I subscribed.
Above and beyond that, by including an interpretation of what is seen in the images, you educate on thinking about lenses. And that is worth even more. My new Milvus is on its way!
