Carl Zeiss 3.5/18 Review

You've asked for it, so here is my spin on the Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 3.5/18 ultra-wide angle lens. Once again, I won't get all geek/techie on you, rather I'll just give you my experiences, thoughts and impressions on using this lens. As you know from other reviews, I shoot with a Nikon D700 in full manual and keep my post-work in CS5 to a minimum - usually a contrast adjust or the occasional cross-balance when the mood strikes me. I love to keep my shots as close to SOOC as I can. With my Zeiss glass, I really find no need to do much post work. No need for color correction, sharpness layers, curves or what have you. A few people have questioned if the shots I post here are truly that good from Zeiss - I assure you they are. I keep my EXIF in tact so you can see for yourself.
