Great Wide-Angle Lens

Benchshooter, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I use Zeiss ZF.2 lenses with a Nikon D800. I have the 35mm f/2.8 and the superb 25mm f/2. I also use Zeiss lenses from a Hasselblad on this camera. A full frame camera demands excellent optics. This 18mm lens is absolutely superb.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction

Another fine Zeiss lens.

  • Summary: I've had this lens for a couple of years now. It renders color and contrast with great crispness and clarity. Some minor distortion, vignetting, and slight color fringing along high contrast edges when wide open at f/3.5...as is the case with most lenses in this focal length when opened up.

Fantastic lens

  • Summary: I also have the 15mm from Zeiss, which is much more expensive, but I'm just as happy with this lens, the image quality and sharpness is amazing, lighter, and 1/3 the price. It also works well with existing filter systems, where the 15mm does not. Highly recommended!

Great fixed focus lens

  • Excerpt: Incredibly sharp out to the corners, great contrast. A far superior lens to any of Nikon's equivalent or even close focal length lenses. I have the Nikon 16-35mm F4 VR zoom and it is very sharp, though not so much as this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Solid Wide Angle

Amudgarden, B&H Photo
21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: If you purchase this with the intention of using it as a wide-angle landscape lens, outdoors at sunset or sunrise, you will be very satisfied. It's not overpriced (see Leica), won't auto focus, but will do what any well built lens should: offer the experienced photographer the ability to produce...

Solid-built wide angle lens

Weny, B&H Photo
11 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Overall, it is a solid-built lens from Zeiss. Feeling tough holding in hand. I don't shoot large aperture with this lens because it's for landscapes, so the f/3.5 is OK for me. The image quality turns out pretty good as expected.
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Plastic Lens Cap, Small focus ring
