Very nice lens

  • Excerpt: This is a very nice lens. Very well made. Focus ring is smooth and the long throw makes it easy to focus. Minimal distortion considering the focal length. Bright lens, very good contrast and color rendering. Resolves well on a Nikon D800.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Summary: The best,tact sharp,however am planning of re-selling in favor of Nikkor 14-24mm. Highly recommended though. My preferrence is 14-24mm so I have some leeway on my photography,otherwise this is cream ala cream lens and fast.

Second to none.

Tycoop, Amazon

  • Summary: As an architectural and real estate photographer, I use this lens about 95% of the time for the interior of homes and buildings. I cannot imagine a lens other than the Zeiss 15mm Distagon being better suited for this purpose...I need the ultra-wide angle to compose as much of the rooms as possible.

Stunning Quality

Enormus, B&H Photo
9 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I've only had this lens for a few days, but so far the images I've made have been exceptional. I have to say, though that it does seem a little soft around the corners at apertures wider than f5.6. This lens shows some vignetting that can be easily corrected in software.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Simply Superb!

Tampa Bay Photographer, B&H Photo
1 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I do dislike the price tag, but after using this lens for the past two weeks, I have fogotten that only downside. I rented a number of very wide lenses made by Nikon, Zeiss and one other manufacturer while researching this purchase and the Zeiss 15mm proved the best at corner-to-corner sharpness,...
