Goodbye Canon Red Rings Hello Zeiss Glass

Well it’s official I just sold my last Canon L lens and replaced it with the new Zeiss 135mm f2 ZE. Over the past year I have slowly replaced all of my lenses with Zeiss glass, the love affair started when I brought the Zeiss 15mm f2.8 ZE. Some people will think that I am nuts because all of the Zeiss lenses are manual focus only, but shooting with these lenses really makes me feel like I am a old world film photographer. I also love that all of the lenses are prime lenses because it doesn’t make me lazy by zooming in on my subject, I need to think about all aspects of my composition.

  1. I hope the new glass and you work well together. I think your right about zoom lenses making us a bit lazy as a prime lens forces you to move and also can help you find new or even better compositions.
