Thornwood, N.Y. – Carl Zeiss introduces two completely new wide-angle lenses for Nikon F mount cameras. They cover the full 35mm frame and can be used on both analog and digital SLR’s. The lenses focus manually and can produce sharpness well beyond the capabilities of the best color films today. Both lenses feature a long-life all-metal barrel of very high precision.
The Distagon T* 2/35 ZF is a versatile all-round lens with moderate wide-angle coverage and high speed, a classic standard for photojournalistic work. Due to its high performance, this lens can capture very detailed scenes with high accuracy and information content.
The Distagon T* 2.8/25 is a lens with pronounced wide-angle characteristics. It excels in dynamic architecture, landscape and travel photography. Its sharpness goes far beyond any current color film. The minimum object distance of just two inches from the front element enables unique wide-angle close-ups.
The new lenses will begin shipping at the end of 2006. The list prices are:
* Distagon T* 2/35 ZF: $824.00
* Distagon T* 2.8/25 ZF: $824.00
