From The Phoblographer Conclusion:

The Zeiss 135mm f2 is an absolute dream when it comes to portrait lenses. It is sharp, contrasty, produces beautiful bokeh, and has an excellent build quality. But in the end, it is still quite expensive. However, if you can save up for it and justify the purchase to yourself, you won’t be sorry at all despite a couple of other needs when it comes to focusing.
