    Not any better than a 50 f/1.4 AI S nikkor when I test drove one. YMMV.

    My experience with the Zeiss lenses is that they mix a pinch of magic into them. Whether this is worth the price is a question for you to answer.

    Are they made by Cosina? I have a 58mm Auto-Topcor recreation by Cosina in AIs mount, it's better in every way than the 50mm 1.4 Nikkor.

    I have a Sigma UC zoom AF 70-210 that blows away all of my D lenses

    Do you mean this lens? http://www.kenrockwell.com/zeiss/zf50.htm

    I had a friend who had one and I saw the results. VERY sharp and contrasty. Try looking around Flickr and maybe PBase as I'm sure there are lots of examples.
    Those who know, shoot film
