I like the new compact design, and the optics have been upgraded from thr CP2 line. I wish i had the budget for a couple, especially the 28mm f/2. I do have experience with the ZF2 series, same optics as the CP2s. They are nice and crisp, good micro contrast, but not too sharp.

Prime lenses are usually better than Zooms, but with high end Zooms, the difference has grown smaller.

Z= Zeiss, F=Nikon 2=correct, 2nd generation lens, so a ZF2 is a Zeiss full frame prime lens with Nikon Mount (vs Canon EF) and the current version.
