The Zeiss 50mm f/2 ZF Makro-Planar T* Manual Focus Lens is a fast 50mm macro lens that provides up to half life-size images. Living up to its reputation, this Zeiss macro lens offers exceptional high resolution and image quality over the entire focusing range, from infinity to close-focus. This lens serves double-duty. It is the ideal close-up lens for the exacting 35mm SLR photographer who doesn't mind using a manual focus lens and is a superior "standard" lens when mounted on a full-frame SLR - not a bad choice for rounding out your lens arsenal.
This manual focus ZF lens (for F bayonet mount cameras) is equipped with the AI aperture coupling as well as the non AI coupling. It does not include CPU coupling. Due to this, exposure metering and control is possible with all corresponding camera models. Used with camera models without AI or fork coupling the aperture is closed to the pre-selected value, but metering and automatic aperture control are not possible.
- Durable all-metal lens barrel and precision mechanics.
- Precise mechanism enables exact manual focusing.
- To ensure outstanding sharpness and clarity across the entire focusing range, Zeiss has incorporated a floating lens element into this lens' optical design.
