Comprising a quartet of manual focus prime lenses designed for Nikon F-mount DSLRs, the ZF.2 4 Lens Bundle from Zeiss includes an array of focal lengths, from wide-angle to portrait-length, along with a fitted protective transport case with custom inlays for each of the lenses.

At the wide end of this bundle, the Distagon T* 21mm f/2.8 ZF.2 is a well-corrected lens that incorporates five anomalous partial dispersion elements, as well as a floating elements design, to reduce distortion and deliver a clean image quality. Next in line is the Distagon T* 28mm f/2 ZF.2, which pairs the classic wide-angle perspective with a bright f/2 maximum aperture for working in difficult lighting conditions. A floating elements design is used again, as well as a T* anti-reflective coating to minimize ghosting and flare. Following the wide lenses is the standard, normal perspective Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZF.2 lens, which features a fast maximum aperture and nine rounded diaphragm blades for a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus techniques. Rounding out the bundle is the short telephoto Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2 lens, which combines a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, symmetrical Planar optical design, and longer-than-normal perspective to make it an ideal lens for portraiture. Each of these lenses are housed within durable metal bodies and feature smooth, dampened manual focus control.

Included with the lenses is dedicated Transport Case along with four matched inlays for each lens. This customized case and fitted inlays assures a high degree of protection to the lenses during travel or storage.

  • Distagon T* 21mm F/2.8 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F-Mount Cameras

    The Zeiss Distagon T* 21mm f/2.8 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F-Mount cameras is a manual focus professional lens distinguished by having exceptional color control which allows for breathtaking high contrast pictures without any color fringes. Thanks to the legendary Carl Zeiss T * anti-reflection coating, the Distagon T* 21mm f/2.8 delivers outstanding results. Its wide aperture delivers fantastic performance for both daylight and in lowlight shooting. This lens is equipped with an F bayonet (Nikon) lens mount, and is ideal for landscape, architecture, portrait, group, and commercial photography.

    The new ZF.2 lenses are an enhanced version of ZF lenses. They feature an electronic interface (CPU) that enables support of all important camera operating modes such as shutter priority, aperture priority and programmed auto exposure or manual exposure settings. Photographers no longer have to set the parameters in the camera menu as the lens now transmits standard data such as focal length, speed and the aperture setting to the camera. This data can then be viewed in the EXIF data of each picture.

    The ZF.2 lenses have a mechanical lock on the aperture ring to lock the aperture ring at the lowest setting and prevent unintentional adjustment while taking pictures.

    For technical reasons, these lenses do not have a half-step aperture lock between the lowest (stop position) and the second lowest aperture setting. This guarantees reliable recognition of the automatic position. The lowest aperture on ZF.2 lenses is colored orange to emphasize the automatic position of the aperture ring.

  • Planar T* 50mm F/1.4 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F-Mount Cameras

    The Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F-Mount cameras is a bright and compact standard lens with precise manual focusing with a large rotation angle for precise control. The Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 is designed for medium and longer distances and provides high-performance when used wide open, and improves as the lens is stopped down. The lens construction controls flare and ghosting artifacts, resulting in a brilliant image with excellent contrast and natural color rendition. Combined with a DSLR with a 1.5 crop factor, the lens becomes a compact, lightweight 75mm portrait lens.

    The new ZF.2 lenses are an enhanced version of ZF lenses. They feature an electronic interface (CPU) that enables support of all important camera operating modes such as shutter priority, aperture priority and programmed auto exposure or manual exposure settings. Photographers no longer have to set the parameters in the camera menu as the lens now transmits standard data such as focal length, speed and the aperture setting to the camera.

  • Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F-Mount Cameras

    The Zeiss Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F-Mount cameras is a short telephoto lens which has a classic portrait focal length and performs exceptionally well at medium to longer distances. With a 6-element lens in 5 groups and the Zeiss T* lens coating, you can expect distortion-free performance, which only improves as the lens is stopped down. The f/1.4 aperture is very useful for shooting in low light, creatively controlling depth of field, and its nearly circular diaphragm helps create a pleasing look in your photo's out-of-focus areas.

    This Zeiss ZF.2 lens is designed for use with Nikon F-mount cameras. Thanks to an electronic interface (CPU), ZF.2 lenses support all important camera functions such as the automatic mechanisms for time, aperture setting and program. The lens also supports manual exposure settings. Since the lens transmits EXIF data such as manufacturer, date, metering system and exposure to the camera, photographers do not need to set their parameters manually. The quicker and faster handling capabilities of ZF.2 lenses are especially useful under hectic shooting conditions.
