Capturing perfect moments with exquisite detail is what this lens is all about. No matter if you are photographing landscapes or architectural features, the outstanding edge-to-edge quality ensures impressive results.
The completely redesigned ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 will impress you thanks to its remarkably consistent performance in a variety of areas: outstanding edge-to-edge quality enables you to even position your main subject far away from the center of the image. Even at full aperture, outstanding results with high-contrast, crisp images, make this lens the go-to choice even in low-light conditions. Both the finest structures of the subject in the foreground as well as distant image elements can be rendered perfectly due to the advanced floating elements design of the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25.
Originally developed for SLR cameras requiring a long back focal distance for short focal lengths because of the mirror box (the distance between the back lens element and the film plane must be considerably longer than the focal length), the Distagon lenses (retrofocus design) are also ideal for mirrorless system cameras thanks to their optimized ray path. Even with longer focal lengths, the high-performance Distagon optical design enables consistently good correction all the way to the corners of the image and very low field curvature.
