The bokeh is not great, but also not bad for this focal length. It is in the same ballpark as the Canon and Nikon 24mm f1.4 there, I think.
Thanks for the link BC... I think except for the purple flower shot, the bokeh looks very pleasing and the color rendition is great in all samples... And by the way, I'm not sure if Canon 24 or Nikon 24 could do better at that purple flower shot. Other than that; almost the same MF distance, same max. magnification, same ballpark with regard to bokeh... Maybe better color rendition and better BQ, but no AF, not weather sealed and corners are darker... Not hard to make a choice... or is it <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='
Zeiss 25 has a relatively smaller front element compared to Canon and Nikon. I guess this was considered to be able to compete in prices <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='
