FOREWORD
Here is my small Zeiss Makro-Planar  T* f2 100 mm ZE review. I’m not a pro reviewer, I’m just going to have fun with this lens and use it.  Share what I think about it and post the images.

First of all, this lens is MF ( manual focusing ) only. This lens is all about build and image quality. Perfect lens for portraits, macro, landscape, product and architecture.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

C0138_Ulf-Greger-Carl-Zeiss-2014
Starting with unboxing pictures. My Makro-Planar 100 is ZE, the Canon EF mount, this lens is also availible with Nikon mount named ZF. Shot with Zeiss Distagon 2/35.

C0137_Ulf-Greger-Carl-Zeiss-2014
A solid metal lenshood. Warrenty card and so on. Shot with Zeiss Distagon 2/35.

Here is a picture of me with the Makro-Planar 100. Shot with a Canon 650D & Canon 100 L 2.8 IS. That lens is also a very good 100mm macro. And you get IS and AF. The owner of this lens prefer this over all her other Canon lenses.  Photo by Stine Norheim.

BUILD QUALITY :
This lens FEEL  expensive. Heavy, all metal with a focus ring that is smooth to turn.

OPTICS :
Bokeh : This lens delivers smooth and wonderful bokeh. All Carl Zeiss lenses I have 2/35 mm Distagon – 85 mm 1 ,4 Planar ( sold ) – Makro-Planar 2/100 mm  really kicks a** when it comes to bokeh.
Only Leica lenses comes close ( or better in some cases ) in my opinion.
Nikon and Canon also has some wonderful bokeh lenses:
Canon 50 L f1.2
Canon 300 L f2.8 IS mk II
Canon 200 L f2.0 IS
Nikon 105mm Macro
Nikon 58mm f1.4 G,
Canon 85 L f1.2 mk II
Canon 135L f2.0 …..to name a few of the best.

Sharpness : Very sharp wide open and great microcontrast, maybe the sharpest lens I have ever used. . At f4 and up it’s ridiculous sharp. Great for lagre prints way beyond A3.
Colour: This is what I bought this lens for, the colors from this lens is very good. In low light it really shines.

Other samples from the  Makro-Planar 100.

I personally love this lens. If you should choose this Zeiss over a Canon 100mm L macro or a Nikon 105mm macro you have to figure out for yourself.

Hope this small review helped you in some way.

I used a Canon 5D III for this review.

My best buy ever. The Carl Zeiss Distagon 2/35 ZE. Three years I have had it, for one of those years this was my only lens for my Canon 5D.  So sharp and produces so good colors and contrast that it put all other lenses I have tried in the shadow. Love that Zeiss lens. Has some magical fairy dust or something..  It’s only manual focus, but if you can live with that I recomend it.

A Common Eider ( Ærfugl in Norwegian ); i have not much knowlegde about birds but a woman that was watchin them told me it was a male.  Picture taken at Kirkøy, Hvaler in Norway March 8.
Wiki says . (Somateria mollissima) is a large (50–71 cm body length) sea-duck that is distributed over the northern coasts of Europe, North America and eastern Siberia. It breeds in Arctic and some northern temperate regions, but winters somewhat farther south in temperate zones, when it can form large flocks on coastal waters. It can fly at speeds up to 113 km/h (70 mph).

A friend, Hans that was actually shot with a pistol here. I treated the injuries before hospital and doctor took over. Smiling as always, but this wound was serious.

Some time later I was in a chainsaw accident,  and it took the hospital 2 hours to stich me up. 50 stitches. My bad, not wearing helmet and chainsaw safety clothing.  So I have had a rough couple of months, not taken many pictures with my Canon 5D. My Ricoh GR have been used a lot since it’s always in my jacket.

Penicillin and painkillers. Not a good picture in any way, but a reminder about these days.

The photograph itself doesn’t interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.

Upgrading my HiFi. Bought a pair of 2012 model Klipsch Heresy III speakers playing on my Harman/Kardon stereo amp and a  Seas D1004-04 L26RO4Y 10″ element to go with a Zachy DSW-400 ( 70-3428 ) subwoofer amp, just have to make a cabinet first .
Seas is High End elements.  Cold here in Norway now so have to wait until it get warmer in my garage. Also bought a English handmade Podium Slimline HiFi rack.
