  • Excerpt: i have the otus 55mm and 85mm, so i've been getting comfortable shooting in manual, mostly with landscape shots, but also some street and people shots. The 21 mm for Nikon just arrived, yesterday. I put it on my Nikon D-810 and shot this sunrise in Central Illinois this morning.

  • Summary: I am primarily a landscape photographer using Nikon bodies. I have the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 which is also a great lens. I purchased the manual focused Zeiss due to the great reviews. The color from the Zeiss is every bit as good as the reviews indicate.

Perfect wide angle lens

  • Excerpt: I bought Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 almost a year ago and after a couple of thousands of photos I can say it is by far the best wide angle lens I ever mount it on my DSLR. I've tried Nikon 14-24mm which is simply fantastic performer but when comes to color rendering, macro contrast and sharpness, Zeiss 21/2.8...

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction

An outstanding wide field lens

  • Excerpt: As a long time user of Hasselblad Zeiss lenses, I can tell you Zeiss is pretty much as good as it gets. This one performs (including test targets) as expected with the exception noted below. Lens distance markings are very accurate.

Great Lens for Low-Light Landcapes

  • Excerpt: I have three Zeiss ZF.2 lenses. This is the lens I use the most. The removable lens hood works very well, and allows this lens to adapt to the Lee Filter System. For this reason, I use the Zeiss 21mm for twice as many photos as the Zeiss 15mm, especially during low-light situations.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Weak Casing
