Why Did I Wait So Long?

Roowad, B&H Photo
15 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to use on my D7100. It's probably one of the finest lenses that I've owned in a long time. The images are clean and tack sharp. To manually focus is easy with the in-camera focus indicator and it is silky smooth.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: NONE

Great Wide-Angle Lens

  • 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

Eric, B&H Photo
16 May 2014
  • 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

  • Summary: wonderful wide lens. Heavy, durable, closer characteristics to a cine lens vs photo. Only wish it could be a f2 or 2.8

  • Summary: Awesome lens. Matches the look of the 35 and 50mm Zeiss we currently own. Wish it was a little faster but it works for most of our shooting situations.
