The down sides are- cost and bulk. The upsides are- extremely bright through the viewfinder aids focussing, even in low light; very sharp even at f2.0; weight actually helps in balancing with a Contax camera; 100mm focal distance lets you catch portraits with the subject unaware of what you are doing for a more natural pose (which also works for wildlife); at f2/2.8/4 you can throw the background out of focus for startling in-focus images; highest build quality.
With an adapter, it can be used on Canon EOS film and digital SLR's. On digital SLR's the focal length becomes 160mm, but the aperture stays at f2. A 160/f2.0 telephoto lens. Just imagine. Of course, you focus manually, you must sop down manually and you can't use auto metering.
This is a really nice lens on Canon systems.
I own about 40+ lens including the Zeiss / Leica R lens / Pentax / Canon L lens.
This lens is one of the best I have used so from Zeiss.
The CA is noticeable at wide open. The flare resistance is quite good.
Only wish they have 1:1 option instead of 1:2. However, I don't really shot macro photography as much, it is a good all around lens.
AS good as the nikon 85 2.8 pc only this nikon is 2.8
100 f2 mm has CA in some tyni litle areas of images in f2 ..
I expect 100% CA free in this lens....
any way very good lens
