Distagon T* 2.8/15 and Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 lenses

Share this on social media:

Carl Zeiss has introduced two new lenses: the Distagon T* 2.8/15 super-wide angle lens and the Apo Sonnar T* 2/135. Both lenses are available with F-mount (ZF.2), EF-mount (ZE) and M42-mount (Z-M42-I) and are designed for use in creative photography as well as industrial applications.

The Distagon T* 2.8/15 features an extra large field angle of 110° and speed of 1:2.8. Through its extremely large field angle, the lens allows either foreground or background emphasis. The Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 has a 135mm focal length. A special, variable arrangement of the lens elements ensures excellent image quality across the entire focusing range from 0.8m to infinity. As it is an apochromatic lens, chromatic aberrations are corrected by lens elements made of special types of glass with exceptional partial dispersion.
