Zeiss zf.2 thoughts

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I'm on day 3 with the A7s and I'm definitely sold. I've got it for a week, so i'll wait until then till I make any decisions, but assuming I do buy it, I'm looking to buy a new set of lenses. 


Does anyone have experience with Zeiss Zf.2s or similar? General thoughts for video and/or photography? I've read some reviews online, but reactions seem to be all over the place.

Somehow I had a feeling you'd chime in here Andy! Thanks for that tip. There are so many Zeiss lens mounts options out there its almost hard to research them. A different world than canon ef glass for sure. I assume the optics and coating on the CY mounts are roughly the same as the nikon versions?

these are the lenses you should be looking at


the general thought of view is that zeiss stopped their deal with Contax Yashica then made new sleeker housings and its the same optics inside these newer zeiss lenses you where looking it ,



these are all C/Y mount

50mm f1.7



25mm f2.8



28mm f2.8



35mm f2.8



I dont know the exact focal lengths you want but this is the range of Zeiss that are very very good and still affordable - stick them on a speedbooster and they become wider and sharper and f2!!



Or just get a Nikon 28-70mm f2.8 IF ED  - it covers the above and is killer glass and on a speedbooster is also f2!
