Camera Labs It is an excellent lens, no doubt, surpassing the image quality of Zeiss’s own 85mm f1.4 Otus which is no small feat. It can be confidently used even at f1.4 with little to no compromise in optical performance. It may lack autofocus and image stabilization [...], but that is of less concern when used on a modern mirrorless body. And its build quality is unsurpassed. It earns a Highly Recommended, albeit with the caveats mentioned [...] and of course price.
