Zeiss Announces 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* ZM Lens for M-Mount Rangefinder Cameras

Photography News: Zeiss's New 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* ZM Lens Offers M-mount Photographers Speed and Optical Quality

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 17, 2014) - The new 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* is an exciting addition to Zeiss's family of lenses, due to its large f/1.4 maximum aperture and versatile 35mm focal length. Featuring a ZM mount compatible with M-mount rangefinder cameras, this manual focus lens comprises 10 elements in 7 groups, along with Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings to maximize sharpness, clarity, and resistance to surface reflections. Engineered to produce a flat image field, this lens virtually eliminates chromatic and spherical aberrations for faithful color reproduction and refined edge sharpness.

High-quality optics help to ensure that details are made apparent; while the f/1.4 design offers relatively high shutter speeds, even under low light, along with the ability to precisely isolate subject matter within the frame. The lens's rounded 10-blade aperture smoothly renders out-of-focus areas both in front of and behind the focal plane, and can be adjusted in 1/3 steps for optimal depth of field and exposure control.
