    Terrible! Just awful quality at f1.4-f2.8. I was shocked. Based on
    the numbers, you'd be better off buying any old 50mm f1.4 manual lens
    off Ebay at $60.00! Meanwhile, a slew of other Zeiss's they tested
    were stunning, particularly the 100mm Makro which NASA claimed was the
    best lens they ever tested.

    I doubt it. Since when does Zeiss release variable-quality products?
