Standart angle FX everyday lense.

hash_rus, Ebay
6 February 2014
  • Summary: This Distagon have a good build quality as others CZ lenses. Its a little wider than standart 50mm lenses, and its much better for myself now, after using him for two mounth. But Distagon have little perspective, and straight vertical lines have little angle at the borderes of frame, bit its not high and critical. Quality of pictures and especially colors much interesting than from Nikon lenses, for me. Its metal body give fantastic feelings of handling.

Great Optics and Build Quality

A. Larson "Film Buff", Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: For years I had used a 35mm lens as my "normal" lens, not the usual 50mm lens. I used a Leica 35mm f/2.8 on a Leica R6 film SLR. When I bought this lens, I was looking to duplicate that great Leica build quality and optical performance on my Nikon DSLR. I prefer using good prime lenses in lieu of kit zoom lenses, even though kit lenses these days have good optics. I wanted to have that assurance of Leica quality, but hooked up to digital capture, not film. I got my wish.

The best 35mm I've ever owned.

Riceboy2049, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: I've owned a lot of 35mm len's prior to this. I've had canon's f/2.0, f/1.4, nikon's f/2.0, f/1.8g, f/1.4g, and older ais. The Zeiss is much better and in it's own class. Outstanding contrast, color, bokeh, and of course sharpness. Just buy it already! When you see your photos, they're out of this world. There's something about the photos that this lens produces that's just "right." That being said, it's manual focus only.

Zeiss is King!

  • Summary: Everyone knows Zeiss makes the very best lenses in the world. What people may not know is that their Nikon made ZF Distagon, Planar, and Makro lenses are almost optically cousins of the much more expensive CP2 series. The Distagon 35mm f2.0 is no exception to that rule. Zeiss does also make a 1.4 for about 500 or so dollars more but I think it is more worth it to get this one.

A must have!

we-co_seller, Ebay
5 July 2011
  • Summary: Great lens. This is the real deal, but if you have oodles of cash go for the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4, it's a bit faster and more light is always better, but for the price on this. I couldn't pass it up.

sleek, heavy-weight lens with the quality to match the price

frhout "frhout", Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: This Carl Zeiss Distagon 35mm ZF.2 is an expensive manual lens, three times the price compared to the Nikon 35mmD which is automatic. My first impression is that this lens is very sleek and svelte, but gosh, that weight ... it weighs like a rock. It comes with an individually signed quality control-cum-test certificate and we'll need to go to the Zeiss site within four weeks after purchase for registration to benefit from the free extended 3-year warranty.

Super Objektiv. Ein Immerdrau!!!

lykoudos, eBay.de
16 February 2014
  • Summary: Absolutes Spitzenobjektiv. An meiner D300 als auch an der D700 und F100 liefert es brillante Bildqualität. Der fehlende Autofokus ist mehr als entbehrlich und ermöglicht erst genau diese Bauart: reduziert auf das Wesentliche und Garant für atemberaubende Bilder.

  • Excerpt: Один из лучших, по праву называется "легендой" всей линейки Цейсса.
  • Pros: - Качество сборки и картинки, это что-то не с этой планеты. На это стекло хочется снимать и снимать, от портретов, до пейзажей. - Фирменный микроконтраст придает картинке удивительный объем. - Резкий как нож на полностью открытой диафрагме. - Минимальная дистанция фокусировки в 30см позволяет творить удивительные композиции.
  • Cons: Родная крышечка. Это проблема всех Цейссов.

  • Excerpt: Великолепный объектив, один из лучших, когда-либо созданных в своем классе. Будучи установлен на Nikon d800 заметно превосходит по резкости любой из никоновских зумов и родной Nikkor 2/35 (справедливости ради замечу, что последний втрое дешевле). Как минимум не уступает (в плане качества картинки) Nikkor 1,4/35, будучи заметно его дешевле. Отсутствие автофокуса ругать не буду, т.к.
  • Pros: Высочайшее качество сборки, безупречно плавный ход кольца наводки на резкость, отличная резкость на всех диафрагмах, до f|11$ отлично держит контровый свет.
  • Cons: К недостаткам условно можно отнести большой для его светосилы вес и незначительный хроматизм.
