Fantastic for its purpose.

  • Excerpt: Blows away my previous ultra-wide angle (canon 10-22 for a crop). Love the contrast and rendering, not sure what could be better. Get the focus correct and you'll be happy.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Manual Focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

Beg to Differ

  • Excerpt: OK, I get it. <br />Every person has a different purpose for their photo thing. If you buy this lens, I'm guessing it may be that you are into architecture or landscape work.<br />If so, you have a winner here. For architectural images, keep it level, keep it focused, and you have images that rival not so long ago Hasie ultrawide stuff.<br />Seriously. <br />I do not think such users will be let down.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Excellent IQ but poor quality control

  • Excerpt: I am a Zeiss fan. I have a Zeiss 21mm f2.8 that I use on a Leica M9 and it is extraordinarily sharp and contrasty corner to corner, so I really looked forward to getting this 15mm lens to use with my Canon 5DIII. Ultra wide lenses are a big hole in the Canon line. Both the Canon 14mm and the 16-35 zoom are great in the center but poor to useless in the corners.
  • Pros: Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Defective Lens Cap Design, Poor Focus Calibration, Poor quality control

Zeiss Distagon T* 2,8/15 – eine kleine Präzisionsmaschine

Bruno Musikus "manny", Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: In Anbetracht des sehr stolzen Händlerpreises war ich "in froher Erwartung". Als ich das erste Mal das hochwertige Zeiss in den Händen hielt, fühlte sich das recht gut an. Die ersten Probefotos mit den Distagon T* 2,8/15 ZE (für Canon) sahen farblich und perspektivisch perfekt aus. Es schien so, als ob auch die Schärfe so einiger Maßen sitzt. Am Bildschirm, nach genauer Analyse, kam schnell Ernüchterung auf.
