Reviews and Problems with Carl Zeiss ZE 2/25mm Lense
Showing 1-10 of 10
Best lens in my kit
23 March 2015
Summary: Though the 25mm seems like it's the unwanted little brother of the nearby 28mm and 18mm lenses, I would highly recommend it. This lens has the same solid feel and quality glass you expect from Zeiss. I actually find it to be the perfect compromise. It's just wide enough for most applications.
Excerpt: Another outstanding Zeiss lens in my lens collection. This is my sixth Zeiss lens and I continue to be delighted with the quality and character that each lens brings to my photos and video. I use them on a Canon DSLR and a Sony NEX FS100 (using a metabones adapter).
Excerpt: I love this lens. It's my favorite focal length and it's manual focus. It produces stunning images with great color, contrast and sharpness. I don't care for auto focus so this was the only alternative for me.
Excerpt: Its a tank - all metal. My camera is a Canon 5D Mark II. Silky smooth focus for about 130 deg, down to 10" for very fine control. All modes work and it delivers full EXIF data. Also, auto focus points light up along with green focus confirmation LED.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I came into photography / videography knowing that I wanted to use primes – at least get started with them, partly for aesthetic reasons but also for the discipline. My first lens was a 50 and I used that exclusively, Ozu-style, for about a year before adding this lens to my kit.As someone working...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I recently moved from camcorders into DSLR photography/videography with a Canon 5D Mk III. I bought the 24-105mm kit lens and a Zeiss 50mm f/1.4. Well, the Canon lens stayed in the bag most of the time because of the outstanding image quality and incredible "feel" of the Zeiss lens.
Pros: Awesome build quality, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Video Quality, Great Picture Quality
Excerpt: A wide angle with such a large aperture has more benefits than just shallow depth of field. While this provides ample creative uses with a wide angle lens, the greater light gathering and brighter viewfinder is the greatest aspect.
Excerpt: Alright, I gave this a 5 star rating really I wanted to give it 4.5 stars. This is my first Zeiss lens, I bought this and sold my 24-105 Canon lens. I shoot landscape photography and wanted to get a prime. After doing some research I choose this new lens from Zeiss.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Feel's good, Good Video Quality, Great construction, Great Picture Quality
