After having this photo being tweeted by @CarlZeissLenses, I won our club’s yearly photo competition.
May with Zeiss Distagon T* 1.4/35mm
Just a photo of May taken with the new Zeiss Distagon 35mm. Both are worth every penny!
Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 Samples
I just figured out how to replicate photos into a specific gallery under the Gallery 2 software. So check out my Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 samples gallery. I’ve been patiently waiting for Zeiss to release their new Distagon T 35mm F/1.4 ZF.2. Too bad I can’t be a tester, like Lloyd Chambers!
Congratulations Zeiss on 120 years of lenses!
Carl Zeiss turns 120 years old this month. While I only have one of their lenses, I’ll probably purchase them from now on. Hopefully the rumors are true that they’re releasing some new lenses this year!
My Review of Zeiss Ikon 100mm f/2.0 Makro Planar ZF Manual Focus Macro Lens for the Nikon F (AI-S) Bayonet SLR System.
Zeiss Ikon 100mm f/2.0 Makro Planar ZF Manual Focus Macro Lens for the Nikon F (AI-S) Bayonet SLR System.
Pros: Consistent Output, Strong Construction, Durable, Beautiful Color, Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp Focus
Cons: Lens cap
Best Uses: Macro, Portraits
Describe Yourself: Photo Enthusiast
The colors, contrast, and sharpness make this one of the most amazing lenses you can buy.
The only thing that I would change is the lens cap which can be difficult to use; however this is only a minor quibble.
Zeiss is releasing new “.2″ models which are chipped and send the data to your body, which may be helpful if you’d rather not mess with “Non-CPU” lenses. I purchased this lens before they released these new models, and I’m certainly not bothered by this.
All in all, a fantastic product!
