This moderate wide-angle lens is as bright as the Planar T* 1,4/50 and T* 1,4/85 thus perfectly complementing this product range. Thanks to the excellent "bokeh" in the out-of-focus areas, it opens up new possibilities in background design. Precise focusing mechanics featuring a wide rotational angle allow you to work accurately with different levels of sharpness to create an individual atmosphere. Whether reportage, portrait or landscape photography the new Distagon T* 1,4/35 is a master of artistic expression.

Feels super sturdy, beautiful skin tones, great contrast and so far seems to be working on 2.5k and 4k BM cameras (as far as detail goes)
The only problem is that once you start filming with Carl Zeiss lens you want them all
Well I already had the Zeiss Planar T* 50/1.4 and I fell in love with the manual focus, for me it makes photography much more interesting, in fact I'd say it re-sparked my interest and the image quality that I got from it alway blew me away, much more than any canon lens ever has. The 50 wasn't the sharpest wide open or sharper than my L glass but sharpness isn't everything. It more than made up for it with the color, contrast, and transition from the out of focus areas, and the quality of the bokeh was unparalleled.
I found I rarely went past 50mm with my 24-70 as a walk around anyway and I only shoot past that during sports with my 70-300 IS lens. Take into account that I have a crop sensor camera and 50mm is more or less 80mm for me.
So I sold my L glass, kept the Zeiss 50 as my portrait lens, and split the difference to buy the Zeiss Distagon 35/1.4 as my new walk around. On a crop body it is closer to 50mm prime which is considered a "normal" lens on a full frame camera which basically means it is a similar view to that of a naked human eye. And I can confirm to this because when you look through the viewfinder it's almost as if nothing changes and everything seems the about same as it does when not looking through the lens. This is perfect for me.
Unlike the 50/1.4 the 35 is pretty damn sharp wide open at 1.4 but still has the amazing contrast and bokeh quality of the 50. If image quality is a concern for you, this is definitely best in class. Not to mention the build quality and heft of this lens. This baby is DENSE. It's a little on the big side, but not nearly the biggest lens I've ever held, and it is by far the heaviest. I am confident this lens will outlast any canon glass out there. There are no electronic focusing motors or image stabilizers that can go bad over time. Nothing but high quality metals and glass. I'm sure I will still have this lens for all camera body upgrades that I make. It's expensive, but it's a good investment if you plan of doing photography for awhile. Plus, once you buy this lens, you've already purchased the best, so you won't be compelled to upgrade, unless of course you have the money for Zeiss' Otus collection of lenses.
The only thing I'm missing from my kit now is a Zeiss ultra-wide prime for landscapes, which will definitely be my next investment.
I have nearly the entire set of zeiess distagon lenses. The 50mm 1.4 is very soft at 1.4-1.8, the 85mm 1.4 is soft at 1.4-1.8, the 35mm 1.4 is crisp at 1.4. It's amazing! It's the best low light lens I've used.
Also the charity on the entire line is amazing for the cost. I work in TV and Film and use these lenses for my night time cinematography and have gotten unreal results.
I'm hoping to get the 100mm and 135mm some day soon.
I'm not going to insult anyone by going into too much detail, if you're seriously considering purchasing this lens you probably know what you're getting into. Make sure to check out the Zeiss lens lineup at their website, they have example pics and technical details if you haven't looked into that already.
This lens has exceptional bokeh, perhaps the best I've ever seen, it's smooth and quite unique.
Perfectly sharp at f1.4, even Canon's L glass isn't this sharp wide open.
The only con to this lens is its weight, I think its worth it to get the shots I want, but if for some reason you want lite then look elsewhere.
Oh yea, also the lens cap sucks! Buy something to replace it.
Honestly this is a great deal when you think about what it allows you to do, it opens a world of possibilities.
