Zeiss 21 mm. f/2.8 Prime

Michael Flaherty, Amazon
22 August 2015
  • Summary: Here is an initial impression on this lens. I've been using it for a few weeks on almost a daily basis, but still I really think most reviews are done with insufficient use of the product. So this is my "first take". It' s my 2nd Zeiss; have the 50 mm. f/1.4 also, which I love.

A great lens

  • Summary: This lens is just wide enough for me for wide shots. The 15mm and 18mm bend the image too much for video. It's very sharp and has a very loose focal ring. I do however wish it was a 1.4 or 2.0.

As close as it gets to wide angle perfection!

  • Summary: This is a premium piece of glass. I'm not really sure what adjectives to use in order to emphasize how amazing this lens is. This is one of the best lenses that you will ever own. Construction: It's a top quality, all metal construction with a truly elegant design.

Excellent for Landscapes

  • Excerpt: I traded my Canon EF 16-35 f/2.8 L USM II for this lens. I liked the 16-35, but was unhappy with the corners.The Zeiss 21 is simply incredible. Tack-sharp and contrasty from corner-to-corner.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I haven't had the lens long enough to thoroughly evaluate it, but from what I've seen so far, it's amazing. What I noticed immediately was the wonderful color saturation. The clarity is sparkling. I am taking this to Yellowstone in a few weeks. I love this lens.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction

The Sharpest Wide Angle I've Ever Used

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: I rented this lens for 2 weeks during a photography road trip to the Midwest and it did not disappoint. My main requirement was sharpness and in that respect the Zeiss delivered the goods. The good points out weighed the bad points but please read my blog to see example photos and my full review.

The ultimate wide angle lens for full-frame cameras.

David Siegfried, Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: This is it. The One. This is the magical "just right" wide angle lens that every serious 35mm landscape photographer *must* have in his or her kit. It's not so crazy wide that it reduces everything way down in the far horizon, capturing mostly massive sky and foreground, but wide enough that it...
