Carl Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* 1.4/35 review by Momiziano

  • Summary: This is one of my favourite gear, has a colour rendition simply astonishing!! I shoot 3/4 of time at 1.4 and there's a very very good detail in the focused area with an extremely pleasant bokeh.. The gear is made with the high zeiss-cosina standard glass and brass, the focus ring is fantastic. Some CA at 1.4.
  • Pros: Oh what a lens!!
  • Cons: CA

  • Summary: I just got this lens. (01/30/2012) It's an unbelievable piece of glass. The Zeiss coating is just different than others. I can't explain what it is but this lens renders images beautifully. Contrast, colors, sharpness etc. etc. are all top notch. I simply love this lens despite the fact it's a manual focus lens. Zeiss website shows movies on how to deal with that (if you're not familiar with manual focusing) and how/where to get focusing screens for your camera.
  • Pros: Image quality, build,
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: what can I say? this is an outstanding lens and best 35mm prime ever made by any one. its central resolution is just insanely high even at f1.8, even at f1.4 , it is usable and sharp (at least in the center of FF). my copy is a ZE version and I would probably buy a ZF 2 version as soon as it becomes available here.
  • Pros: the best lens ever made , sensational central sharpness , very well made, very precise focus ring.
  • Cons: size (a bit too big), weak flare resistance.

  • Summary: I know I rated this a 10 in all categories but it is well worth it. This lens is simply amazing and amazing to use. The build quality and focus is the best I have seen of any SLR lens period! Color rendering and contrast is amazing! The only drawback is CA when shooting against a bright background. However, all the other qualities of this lens make up for that and then some.
  • Pros: Image quality, build, contrats,

"une tuerie" cet objectif.

17 May 2013
  • Summary: Objectif de très haute qualité, bokeh, couleurs... N'a pas peur du noir (excellent en faible luminosité). Construction robuste digne de chez ZEISS. Je fais pas mal de clip pour des chanteurs avec mon 5D Mk2 et mon ZEISS 85mm, la qualité me semble parfois trop élevée par rapport aux autres objectifs... Concernant le ZEISS 35mm, l'absence d'autofocus est VRAIMENT gérable et d'une très grande précision.

SUPER lens

  • Excerpt: Alle verwachtingen die ik had van deze lens komen uit. De beeldkwaliteit is uniek en dan vooral bij diafragma 1.4. De scherpte is fluweelachtig, de onscherpte (bokeh) zacht en de naar de hoeken toe loopt het beeld langzaam iets donker weg. Een eigenschap die als negatief wordt gezien maar wat mij betreft bijdraagt aan het totale unieke beeld. Gebruikt op een full frame camera (D700) is de scherptediepte minimaal, dus goed scherpstellen is essentieel.
  • Pros: Unieke beeldkwaliteit, Prachtige bokeh, Oersterk, Inclusief goede zonnekap
  • Cons: Prijs?

  • Excerpt: L'obiettivo Zeis distagon a focale fissa (35mm) che apre a 1.4 è uno strumento da maestri della fotografia. Innanzitutto chiariamo qualche aspetto: il fatto che sia a focale fissa vuol dire semplicemente che non ha possibilità di aumentare o diminuire lo ...
  • Pros: la serietà della casa costruttrice, la luminosità, la robustezza
  • Cons: il prezzo
