Sample images from the new Zeiss Distagon 55mm f/1.4 lens

The guys from PCH were able to snap few images with the new Zeiss Distagon 55mm f/1.4 lens attached to a Nikon D800E during the 2012 Photokina show. The new high-end lens from Zeiss is specially designed for high resolution (over 30MP) full frame DSLR cameras like the Nikon D800 and D800E. Shipping is expected to start in September 2013 with a price tag around 3,000 EUR. As far as I know, those are the first Distagon 55mm f/1.4 samples available online:

    I wish Nikon had a truly Pro-level fast 50. The 50mm f/1.4 AFS just doesn’t have the look that the 24, 35, and 85mm f/1.4 AF-S brethren have. It has great bang-for-the-buck, and perhaps it is unfair to expect it to perform as well as lenses that cost three times as much. I hope Nikon engineering buys this Zeiss and gets inspired for a $1200-$1600 pro 50.
