    Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 Announcement


    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.



    2). Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4


    Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 will be available on sale with Nikon and Canon mounts already in July this year. It will cost around $2000.

      Nikon has just presented a prime, wide-angle AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED lens, which can work with both FX and DX sensors. The lens is a perfect choice for both portrait and landscape photography and, as the producer assures, that lens reproduces the natural expansion of a space.

      1). Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED
      The lens consists of 14 elements placed in 11 groups, including two lenses made of ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass, and three aspherical ones.

      The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture, thanks to which it should create beautiful bokeh.

      A well-known Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is responsible for adjusting focus. The lens is also equipped with Rear Focusing System (RF), thanks to which the lenses placed at the rear are the only moving elements so the lens does not change its length during the adjustment of focus. The minimum focus distance is 0.92 ft. (0.28m).

      2). Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED Lens Construction
      Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED weighs 22.8oz. (645g), has the dimensions of 3.2x3.9in. (83x100.5mm) and is, of course, sealed.

      The lens is available on pre-sale and it costs $2100.
      Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is the newest lens for macrography equipped with a flash, which frames the front lens. Thanks to this function, we will be able to illuminate a photographed object and neutralize the shadows casted by a camera and a lens. The flash has a possibility of illuminating one or two segments at the same time. 

      1). Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM
      Inside the flash, we have the optical system consisting of 10 lenses placed in 6 groups. As would be expected of a real macro lens, it has a 1:1 mapping, and the minimum focus distance is 30mm.

      The lens has been equipped with the Hybrid IS image stabilization technology, which corrects angular and linear displacement of an image, and a quiet, precise STM autofocus motor. 

      2). Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM
      Canon EF-S 35 mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is to appear on sale in June 2017. It will cost $350.
      Zeiss presented today the next version of a lens from Batis family, which is dedicated for cameras with E-mount.
      The lens with such a focal length is designed especially for portraitists and wedding photographers, who more and more often choose mirrorless cameras, not heavy and uncomfortable reflex cameras. Similarly to other Batis models, also this one is equipped with the OLED screen displaying information about the depth of field range, current aperture, and the distance from a photographed object.

      1). Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8
      In the sealed housing of Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 we will find optical system consisting of 14 lenses placed in 11 groups. The lens is the first one to have the focal range of 135mm for E-mount, and to be equipped with AF motor.

      2). Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 & Sony a7R
      Zeiss Batis 135 mm f/2.8 also possesses image stabilization.
