Carl Zeiss Lenses - "Stress test"

[Thanks to Bert]
Zeiss lenses have long regarded as almost the only lens brand which could hold its own against the exceptional quality - and cost - of Leica lenses.

Zeiss currently makes a line of lenses which fit modern digital SLR cameras like Nikon and Canon, and I think a couple of others. But (perhaps because they don't have any licensing deal), there's limited electronic communication to the camera, which means no autofocus. So it's hardly the lenses to use for lively subjects.

Au contraire...
I find manual focus much better than either slow or inaccurate or uncooperative auto focus.
