Holding true to the Zeiss reputation you can expect awesome color, superb micro contrast and excellent control over distortion and chromatic abberation.
It's a manual focus lens which is only a bother if you're shooting fast action stuff. You do have the benefit of the AF assist indicators depending on your camera body and its setup (they blink red when you've achieved focus).

I used this lens to shoot some historic architecture from the 1940's. I couldn't imagine a better lens to take than this one (other than another Zeiss we offer, the 50mm, it was used for cropping in a bit). This lens performed beautifully. Many of the images will be converted to B&W, but that's where the great contrast control and minimal distortion comes in to play. I did notice some vignetting when it's opened wide, but it quickly goes away and is largely imperceptible anyway. Give this lens a try. It's a top performer.
