Thanks for your review effort, very good stuff. This site has been the best source for concrete information on Loxias, the report from Photokina was great as well. The lenses look great and I’m a big fan of Zeiss lenses, but the manual only aperture control is a bit bummer: no automatic wide open manual focus regardless of chosen aperture when setting Live View Display to “Setting Effect off”. I’ve grown quite used to it (as it gives best peaking with least color noise on lower light levels) with Sony FE lenses and Canon EF mount lenses with Metabones adapter. Zeiss ZE lenses are best in this regard as they have the fully manual focusing ring combined with electronic aperture.
