  • Summary: Zeiss óptics, the best from years and years!. Zeiss for me make the best lenses for dslr's in world. The zf2 "collection" made in japan by the guys from cosina (voigtlander) have an old style quality and like all the good things from the past is is made to produce excelent photos for centurias.

Outstanding!

  • Summary: Outstanding! I prefer this lens over the Nikon 28mm f/2.8 AIS, which is also excellent. However, the Nikon is sharpest close, and loses sharpness at further distances. Therefore, for lanscapes, I prefer the Zeiss, which gives crisp detailed images.

OMG! This lens is very sharp indeed.

  • Excerpt: I just got this lens after reading many reviews and hours of watching youtube videos to make sure I made the right decision. Boy, was I glad I did. I was leaning toward the Distagon 21mm f2.8 but something told me to go for the Distagon 28mm f2.

Great for Pro Video

  • Excerpt: Having previously purchased the zeiss 50mm 1.4, i figured this lens would mantain that level of quality, well, i was wrong. This Lens is indeed better in many ways, such as no chromatic aberration or purple fringing present in backlight shots.

Dude...WOW

  • Excerpt: I do a lot of street photography and portraits, and this lens is fantastic for both. I could not believe the colors it produces when I first saw them. It is an awesome, magical lens. The manual focusing takes a while to get used to, but if you work for it, it's worth the results.

Excellent wide-angle lens

  • Excerpt: I carried a 24-70 lens and found most of the the time I was using 28-35 range. Given the size of weight advantage, I decided to go prime. I know I'll have to move around to frame a picture, but it is not big problem in general. It is a manual focus lens and It may take a little time to get used to!

Wonderful

  • Excerpt: Great lens, see the comparison below with one of the best lens ever made (no post production); in very low light of a XIII century church near Como lake. I was a little frightened to go back to a mf lens on my D700. Besides, no problems at all also with quick use "on the field".

Very unique and versatile

Kinchi, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I've acquired a variety of the Zeiss catalog from 18mm to 85mm and find this lens the most unique and versatile. The unusual and very appealing captures are due primarily to the fact that this lens behaves as a hybrid of sorts: Wide angle, bit of macro and telephoto.

One of the Best Primes Ever Made

  • Excerpt: My staple 28/2 before I got this lens was the Nikon 28/2 Non-AI (AI-converted). I didn't expect much from it until I took my first photo from it wide-open: I could not believe it, I thought I took the picture stopped down! the contrast and detail is just heads and shoulders above my Nikon!

One more Zeiss gem

UdoinDesert, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Using this lens for street shooting and landscape work makes it quite versatile for me. Mechanics, i.e. built, materials, moving parts are top like all Zeiss lenses in this line up. f/2 delivers a bright viewfinder and allows for more creative composition.
