    Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 Announcement

      News

    Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 is yet another Zeiss lens which enlarges the series of manual lenses intended to be used with full-frame Nikon and Canon cameras. Professional Milvus family are designed to work without any problems with the cameras having high resolution sensors.

     

    Inside the new 35 model, we will find 14 optical elements placed in 11 groups, including 5 lenses made of special glass and one aspherical element. Such an advanced optical system should translate into the above-average image resolution, high contrast and proper color transfer.

     

    Thanks to the use of special elements, chromatic aberration is almost non-existent in this lens. What's more, due to anti-reflection coatings, the lens should fulfill its role perfectly in the contrasting lighting conditions.

    Thanks to f/1.4 aperture, we will be able to successfully separate a photographed object of its background and achieve bokeh as well as the malleable blur of out-of-focus parts. The minimum focus distance is 30 cm.

     

    The advanced optical system has been enclosed in the tube made of metal, which is additionally sealed against the influence of weather conditions.

      Sigma has announced a new 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens, designed for the cameras with APS-C and Micro Four Thirds sensor. It is a second model (after 30mm f/1.4) designed for this system. We had to wait for it for more than one and a half years.

      The optical system is based on 16 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we will find 2 asheric lenses and 5 low-dispersion lenses (FLD and SLD). The lens is of course supposed to offer the highest possible optical quality and focus within the whole frame.

      The autofocus motor is to enable smooth and fast focus adjustment, which is to positively influence film-making. The minimum focus distance is 25cm.

      The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture. It is also sealed against dust and weather conditions. The lens has the dimensions of 72×92mm and it weighs 405g.
