My favorite all around lens

Ray, B&H Photo
17 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm a wide angle guy and I shoot a mixture of everyting, from landscape to close up to street. I have the Zeiss 21, this 25, and the 35 f2.0. I love the 21 like nobody's business, but this is my most used lens - perfect focal length for me, right between 24 and 28, previously my two favorite focal...

A Lens to Love

The McKenzie Kid, B&H Photo
8 September 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is sharp and captures incredible detail, especially in the near and middle distances. Color and contrast are wonderful and the files straight from the camera are the best. There is some vignetting wide open but I have not found that to be an issue.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Smooth Focus Throw, Strong Construction

Best Of My Three Lenses in 24/25mm Range

James, B&H Photo
29 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This is my third lens in the 24/25 range and definitely the best. One nice feature is the aperture ring. I can use it on both my FM2 and D800. Center sharpness is outstanding. Chromatic aberration is well controlled and this alone makes it my best lens in this focal range.
  • Pros: Ca Is Controlled

Too difficult to get super sharp

Andrew Macpherson, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: Honestly I was quite disappointed in this lens as it over focused at infinity, meaning to get the crispest images on my D800e you had to back it off fractionally from infinity, and in my tests I found it to have almost no depth of focus or field, even using it f8 which is where DXO Mark say is it's...

Better deal than the f2 version

Sunglasses, B&H Photo
19 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The more you pay for a product, the more you want to believe it is the best... The Zeiss 25mm f2 is great, but not so great as to justify paying $700 more than the already great f2.8 version. I ordered both. I compared them side by side. And I was ready the throw the $700 IF it proved to be better.

Excellent fast wideangle

SteveDK, B&H Photo
4 February 2014
  • Excerpt: If you can live without autofocus, the 25mm/2 Distagon is one of the best wideangles ever made. It has very well corrected lateral and longitudinal chromatic aberrations, high resolution and contrast, and superb all metal build quality.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great value for people who shoot both motion and stills.

mallowrpg, Ebay
5 November 2013
  • Summary: I got this lens to use as a wide-angle option for shooting motion on my RED Epic and also stills on my DSLR. It is a solidly built lens, made from real metal and real glass. This is apparent in the weight of the lens.

A Wide Angle Lens of Rare Quality

A. Larson "Film Buff", Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this lens to go with a new Nikon D800 DSLR. Because the D800 has a full frame 36 megapixel processor, it requires excellent lenses to get the most out of it. The Zeiss ZF2 25mm f/2 is a great wide angle lens for this camera.

Superb Optices

TampaBay Photographer, B&H Photo
9 September 2013
  • Excerpt: After being spoiled with auto focus, it takes awhile to get used to focusing with a manual focus lens agian, but the efforts are well worth it. This lens is smooth and crisp with superb tonality and microcontrast. I doubt I will ever purchase other than Zeiss optics again for my Nikons.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
