Hi Pieter , Thanks for your reply. The Zeiss lens is compact and I understand that it has very good micro contrast , as does the Loxia. I am really attracted to the Loxia though. As you quite rightly point out , it has a D of F scale on the lens barrel.
Hi, I’m new to the forum and would be grateful for your advice ....... please. I have saved my pennies and would like to buy a Sony A7Rii and Zeiss Loxia 35mm F2. I have used manual focus lenses back in the day. My questions are : Is it easy to manual focus on the A7Rii - I have read that the flickering EVF hinders this ? Can anybody who has used this combination advise of their experiences and the IQ ? I realise that the Zeiss Sony Sonnar 35mm F2.8 is auto focus however how does its IQ compare to that of the Loxia in your experience ? Thanks so much
