Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 Distagon T* 35mm Primes

5 star rating
                      5 / 5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $1004.00

Product Description

This wide-angle lens is the most advanced version of the legendary Distagon, a high performance lens with close focus capabilities, that was first introduced in 1961. The Distagon T* 2,8/25 is a recalculation of this design for use with modern SLRs and DSLRs using either full-frame or smaller sensors. The close-focus capability increases the versatility of this lens, providing a wider perspective than the usual macro focal lengths. Combined with a digital SLR with a 1.5 crop factor, the lens has an effective focal length of 38 mm and becomes a moderate wide-angle lens. The Distagon T* 2,8/25 is available with the F bayonet (ZF), K bayonet (ZK) and M42 (ZS) lens mounts and is ideally suited for nature and landscape photography or for any situation requiring a wider perspective.

Strengths:    Minimum shooting distance
Color rendition
Build quality

Weaknesses:    None (beside of price)

Bottom Line:   
The lens is just fantastic. Sharp, excellent color rendition, fine contrast. I compared the Zeiss to Nikon's 24/2.8 AIS. The Zeiss is sharper, the colors are more vivid, and it doesn't blow out the tiny little details in the highlight areas.
