Product Highlights
  • M42 Screw Mount Lens/35mm Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • One Anomalous Partial Dispersion Element
  • Floating Element Design

Pairing manual focus precision with a versatile wide-angle perspective, the Distagon T* 35mm f/2 ZS Lens from Zeiss is an ideal all-around lens that is particularly well-suited to journalistic applications. Featuring a fast f/2 maximum aperture, this lens also excels in difficult lighting conditions and offers fine-tuned control over selective focus placement. Utilizing the Distagon optical design with a floating element system which includes one element made from anomalous partial dispersion glass, distortion and aberrations are minimized and high sharpness is afforded edge to edge. Additionally, a Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to elements in order to suppress lens flare and ghosting for maintained contrast and clarity.

The sophisticated optical design is housed within a robust metal lens barrel, which features an aperture control ring with 1/2 EV click-stops. The manual focusing ring offers a dampened 113° rotation angle for fine-tuned control, and engraved depth of field and distance scales benefit the use of pre-focusing techniques. This ZS-series lens is designed for M42 universal screw mount cameras or adapters and does not support any electronic communication between the lens and camera.

Prime wide-angle lens is designed for M42 screw mount 35mm film cameras.

    Comments about Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/2 ZS Lens for M42 Screw Mount:

    Had it for a week but returned it. Took about 200 photos and compared them to a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 EX. Tested with sigma SD14. I took photos at different apertures of 4 motives:- flower closeup (zeiss slightly better, almost no difference)- a bike (no difference)- backyard (sigma better)- thermometer/numbers (no difference)Manual focusing is not that hard. That wasn't the problem. Also the Sigma SD14 wasn't the problem.great: - build quality is outstanding (metal) - focus ring is perfect to handle not so great: - inconsistant output(straylight problems) - blue shifted color / photos look kind of cold - low value/price ratioI really wanted the Zeiss 35 f/2 and i gave it 4 trys but only the flower close-up convinced me. Not enough for [$]. I expected much better image quality. I will look into the new sigma lenses.
