Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF (on Canon EOS) - Lab Test / Review

10 September 2009
  • Conclusion: As a German website we'd love to report that we've seen another great Zeiss lens (home, sweet home after all) but at the end of the day the proof is in the pudding (or maybe in the "Kraut" here) and it just doesn't taste good. The Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF performed pretty good in our Nikon APS-C review but it didn't impress during our full format tests. The resolution capabilities are simply sub-standard for such an prime lens (@ ~800EUR/US$).

Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
19 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF is a very good fix-focal lens but it doesn´t reach the quality levels of its sister, the Planar T* 50mm f/1.4. Nonetheless it easily outperforms the corresponding Nikkor AF 24mm f/2.8. The image quality is the center is about as good as it gets on the Nikon D200 but the borders could be a little better. The level of vignetting at f/2.8 is also a little disappointing though no problem at other aperture settings.

  • Conclusion: As a German website we'd love to report that we've seen another great Zeiss lens (home, sweet home after all) but at the end of the day the proof is in the pudding (or maybe in the "Kraut" here) and it just doesn't taste all that good. The Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF performed pretty good in our Nikon APS-C review but it didn't impress during our full format lab tests.
