I absolutely love my new CZ 25mm, and thinking over things overnight, my Tokina FX 16-28 may just have been made obsolete. Whilst it still has value, should I trade it in, and what CZ would you recommend given my lens collection below?

I`m thinking of the 85mm. After that my ultimate is the Nikon 200/2, but what CZ would you recommend as a next dream purchase?

Many thanks!

I would recommend the CZ 35/2 and 50/2 Makro-Planar, but I noticed that you already have the Nikkor 35/1.4 and the 50/1.2 AI-S so those would be very redundant. I would say the CZ 85 or the 100 Makro-Planar.

I would go with the 100 MP over the 85, unless you are strictly doing portraiture. Even then the 85 can be tricky with it's focus shift. The MP is soooooooo versatile. It's a critically sharp near-macro, great for portraits, and will outresolve your sensor for telephoto landscapes. I love shooting this lens at f/5.6 set near infinity for landscapes, it gives the foreground a great mild blur, with crisp rendition of distant objects. Also, one of the best part of these Zeiss lenses for me is that very little PP is needed as long as you nail the focus and exposure.
