There has been quite the epic thread on the Fred Miranda board for the last week discussing the image quality of the Canon 100 f/2.8L IS lenses versus the Zeiss 100 f/2 Makro Planar. Since I own both lenses, I've tried to present data in an objective manner. I've starting putting some of it together on my 'Reviews' page.

This morning, we had some soft light due to clouds so I grabbed a couple of images of Chrysanthemums growing in the front yard. I then figured I should do some real photography. The above image was made from a burst of 9 shots, taken at f/2, hand held, manually focused. The images were focus stacked in Photoshop CS 5.1. I used a Zacuto Z-Finder attached to the back of the 5D2 and I have to say that I'm really liking it for hand held manual focus photography.
