So for many years I dreamed about being contacted by Zeiss, the maker of the finest German lenses on the planet, about my photography. That email finally arrived about a month ago. They asked me to take some photos using a new line of prototype lenses. They had found me on Flickr and appreciated many of my bokeh shots using their 100/2 lens. I provided several images and they were happy with them. This led to them offering me any lens on the Zeiss lineup in exchange for images for their blog and advertising. I was in a state of total bliss. I requested the Otus 85mm and Zeiss 135mm f2. They should arrive next week.
