Zeiss Milvus 2.8 / 18mm ZF.2 Nikon F


New perspectives:
This compact super wide-angle lens is ideal for spectacular landscape and architectural photography. Its unique field of vision offers you a range of creative possibilities for composing your photographs. Get very close and give the impression of being right in the middle of the action. Extend the depth effect of your image or highlight an object against a wide background. The high performance of the ZEISS Milvus 2.8/18 ensures impressive image quality across the entire image field. It allows you to capture unique perspectives at any location.

Outstanding image results even in difficult lighting situations:
All lenses are coated with ZEISS T*® Anti-Reflective Coating. Optimised scattered light reduction is achieved by combining finely coordinated measures. In addition to the ZEISS T* coating, all lens edges are finished by hand with a special deep black lacquer. Light traps in mechanical components and specially calculated surfaces are integrated to prevent reflections. Each focal length is characterized by an individual optical construction with partial use of special glass types with anomalous partial dispersion. This minimizes the tendency to color fringing on high-contrast edges.

Future-proof for high-resolution camera systems:
Due to their high imaging performance, ZEISS Milvus lenses are especially designed to meet the requirements of current and future high-performance digital cameras. High-contrast images are possible even with increasing dynamic ranges of the sensors (HDR) due to the low stray light level in the lens. The minimization of imaging errors such as coma, astigmatism and spherical aberrations enables a consistently high resolution across the entire image field. Optics has the potential to get the most out of high-resolution systems. No matter what the future brings - with the Milvus lenses from ZEISS you are optimally equipped.

Creative photography and videography through precise, manual focusing:
Operating a lens manually means controlling the image result gently and precisely from the fingertips and thus shaping it consciously. Ergonomics is everything. The ZEISS Milvus lenses convince with a large angle of rotation, which enables perfect focusing to the point. The high-quality focusing mechanism is smooth-running and without play: This supports the creative play with the focal plane of bright fixed focal lengths. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder or display. The engraving in meters and feet as well as the depth of field scale offer additional assistance for manual focusing. The stepless and noiseless aperture adjustment (De-Click function with ZF.2 Mount) enables the best conditions for videography in addition to the long focus range for these photo lenses.

Durable product with protection against environmental influences:
Optimized ergonomics ensure optimum handling, making photography fatigue-free and reducing the risk of camera shake. The all-metal housing turns every grip into a haptic experience. The dynamic, precise body design sets new standards in the world of photo lenses. But the ZEISS Milvus lenses not only impress with their outstanding housing optics and haptics, but also with their inner values. Special seals to protect against dust and splash water expand the creative possibilities in various recording areas - this guarantees reliable function even under difficult conditions.

Lens mount

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Wide angle lens

Wide angle lens

In photography and cinematography, a wide-angle lens refers to a lens whose focal length is substantially smaller than the focal length of a normal lens for a given film plane. This type of lens allows more of the scene to be included in the photograph, which is useful in architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may not be able to move farther from the scene to photograph it.

Gewohnt gute Zeiss Qualität zu einem stattlichen Preis.

Wäre das Objektiv nicht manuell fokussierend wäre es das perfekte Weitwinkelobjektiv.
Besonders toll ist die Wetterfestigkeit und die 77mm Öffnung, da man damit einfache Filter ohne Aufsatzsystem benutzen kann.
Weiterhin ist die Verarbeitung insgesamt sehr schön und das fokussieren sehr angenehm.

Insgesamt gewohnt unglaublich gute Zeiss Bildqualität.
Die Farbdarstellung sucht ihresgleichen und die Schärfe ist ab Blende f/5.6 atemberaubend.
Teilweise wirken die Fotos echt dreidimensional was ich so bei keinem anderen Weitwinkelobjektiv gesehen habe.
Der einzige negative Punkt ist wohl das Vignetting bei Verwendung ganz offen (f/2.8).
Da ich das Objektiv aber sowieso für Landschaftsaufnahmen benutze und dabei eher mit einer Blende von f/8-f/13 fotografiere gibt es so gut wie kein Vignetting.
