    At about 100 yards or so at F4. Its not bad but I think 5.6 starts it for me at least

    This one has me excited given I would say about 1/2 mile away or further shot at F7.1 and has no direct sun on it this is pretty dang good.

    I would like to try the Sigma 1.4 at some point as well. The Kenko was cheap and given it looks pretty dang good at 5.6 which I think the Zeiss lens makes it better anyway. Its worth keeping unless the Sigma blows its doors off. I would not mind trying the Nikon 1.4 as well but I might have to take the tab off it. Anyone got these converters and want me to try it let me know. Be happy too test them

    So anyone buy this lens since this review. I highly recommend it, best lens yet on the Nikon IMHO.

    Guy,
    The IQ without question seems to be spot on. Guy, you have had this Zeiss for some time now, so I must ask how efficient have you gotten with the manual focus? Are you able to shoot a model thru a series of pose changes, say every second ? ..or do you have to slow down a bit. Do you find yourself using a tripod/camera stand for optimum sharpness when in the studio?
    I so want to buy one of these for christmas and but not sure how the manual focus will work in studio conditions as state above.
    Guy have a Marry Christmas and a prosperous & Happy New year!
