Lloyd Chambers has been shooting it for a week and has examples up on diglloyd.com although you'll have to subscribe to see the full results - but that's small change if you're interested in this lens

I have read the review.

The lens looks very impressive. The 70-80% MTF for fine structures (40 lp/mm). Very high contrast and saturation. Almost no CA, very nice bokeh and low distortion which is unusually in a 15mm.

Looks very impressive. Should perform well on the new generation of Canon/Nikons.

I have noticed on the last few Zeiss lenses released they have upped the performance and the price.

I am in the market for an ultra wide. Perhaps this or the Canon 17tse.
