Zeiss Distagon T* 2.0/35mm for Nikon F mount

Zeiss Distagon f2 35mm

I’ve gone from interested to infatuated to almost exclusively committed in just two short weeks. Both images below were shot with a Nikon D700, f2 @ 1/250 second, ISO 200. It’s not a true one-to-one comparison to my Nikkor as I only shot the Zeiss; I was in a hurry, testing bulbs and gear and batteries before a shoot this morning. I experimented with focusing on my son via distance (it’s not as bad as I would have guessed, given my knowledge of the metric system on the fly) and my daughter using my eye.

It makes my Nikon 50mm feel like a tennis ball by comparison.
