Product Highlights
  • Wide Angle

The Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZK offers a popular wide-angle view, with a minimum focusing distance of only 1.8' (0.5 m). It allows the creative photographer to shoot wider vistas, inspiring landscapes, cityscapes and architecture.

Now offered as a "ZK" lens, for Pentax K-mount cameras. This lens will fully support Program mode, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and full Manual modes with any K-type camera introduced after 1998 (e.g. PZ, MZ, ZX, and all digital SLR cameras).

The Carl Zeiss range of T* SLR mount lenses offers high standards in terms of performance, reliability and, of course, image quality. You can count on highly advanced flare control for crisp and brilliant images. And virtually zero geometric distortion, ensuring precise accuracy when reproducing shapes, especially useful when photographing products and architecture.

Control of flare and ghosting are outstanding, so that even extreme highlights in the image field do not affect the quality of the image.
Precise mechanism enables exact manual focusing.

        super sharp and very easy to focus using single matrix mataring in my d60. A bit heavy but i love to carry around. Macro is very versatile and you can compose incredible photoes. most of my creation are for food and cousine plates.

        buy it!!

              Comments about Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 ZK Distagon T* Lens for Pentax K-Mount Cameras:

              I use this lens for anything from macro to landscapes. It is very sharp and operates buttery smooth. Specs list that it only focuses to 6.7" but, that is way off. It focuses down to 2"!! No kidding.
              The only thing I don't like is the wieght. It's a brick but, so is my K10D so actually it kid of helps keep the camera even more stable. I can live with the wieght since the buuld quality is excellent.
