ZEISS 100mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

A portrait-length prime featuring a high 1:2 maximum magnification, the Canon EF mount Milvus 100mm f/2M ZE Lens from ZEISS features a floating elements system for consistently high image quality when working with both near and distant subjects. Using the classic Planar optical design, this lens incorporates two anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to control aberrations and distortions for even illumination and sharpness throughout the aperture and focus ranges. An enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to lens elements to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and clarity.

Designed for macro applications, this lens' 1:2 maximum magnification ratio is benefitted by a 1.4' minimum focusing distance along with printed magnification scales on the barrel. Its manual focus design is complemented by a rubberized focus ring for fine-tuned, precise control over your focus position. Additionally, Milvus-series lenses also feature an equally aesthetic and durable frosted, anodized metal lens barrel surface along with a weather-sealed construction to protect against dust and moisture.

This 100mm f/2 lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF mount DSLRs, and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 160mm equivalent focal length
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also enables extensive control over depth of field.
Floating elements system maintains consistent performance when working with both close-up and distant subjects.
Planar optical design incorporates a pair of anomalous partial dispersion elements, which help to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing.
Enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and flare for high contrast, color-neutral imagery.
A maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 pairs with a minimum focusing distance of 1.4' and dedicated macro markings on the lens barrel for close-up shooting.
Manual focus design is benefitted by laser-engraved focusing and depth of field scales, along with an IR position dot and hard stops at both infinity and minimum focusing positions.
Weather-resistant construction includes internal seals to guard against dust and moisture as well as a blue sealing ring at the lens mount to protect the lens-camera interface.
All-metal lens barrel has a frosted, anodized surface along with a rubberized focusing ring for both durability and improved tactile control.

    ZEISS 100mm f/2.0 reviews

    Milvus 100mm f/2M ZE Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from POP! It's expensive, a bit heavier than most, only 2X, and no autofocus. But the Otus image quality is worth it. This is the visual equivalent of listening to music on a tube amplifier - you can't chart it, but you know it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens. Zeiss lens = premium quality Picked this lens over a Canon 100mm macro. The extra money is well worth the quality of the pictures. Did a lot of research and the manual focus was the only downside. Once I got used it no problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5 Stars For Exception Lens and Image Quality When you have the time and with a good tripod, you can get exception images with this Zeiss.� Best, if you use the live view's 10x focusing aid or with a good quality view camera magnifying loupe, you certainly can nail the focus on the live view without any problem.� I use all the above most of the time.� The colors, sharpest, contrast and the overall image quality is pretty amazing.� Yes, it is heavy but if you want good glass that is what it is!� Now, it makes me wonder what the real Zeiss lens that is made in Germany and has the 15 round shutter blades can do for me in the background areas in any given pictures taken?� Can anyone tell me the difference if you have both of these kinds of lenses and used them in similar situations? I have an opportunity to use my daughter's Canon 100mm L macro lens for sometime, that I told her to buy about two years ago, I like it better than the Zeiss 100mm, in most instances.� Without saying about the auto focus feature with the 100mm L, the quality of the L lens is outstanding when used with or without a tripod.� I am an old photag, manual everything is no stranger to me.� In macro shooting, I mostly use auto focusing on touch screen when possible with Canon macro lenses.� In other times, I use manual focusing too with the L lens.� You can't beat the speed and easy of use when you use the touch screen with the L 100mm.� That you can't do with this Zeiss lens!� However, if you are used to auto focus on everything or use the 100mm L as a good all around lens, if I were you, I would buy the Canon 100mmL instead. I have no regrets what so ever with the Zeiss purchuse.� It is worth the investment.� I love the pleasant images it takes! Nothing is 100% perfect.��I think I want others know.� I found the focusing black band of this 100mm Zeiss is too narrow.� I wish it is positioned more toward the forwarding area of the lens.� Yes, the long focusing throw is exception.� I have to place many big rubber bands just below the lens hood area to help me to focus better and faster.� The present focus band position on this lens makes the Zeiss front heavy and adds to the camera/lens shake. Hope this will help.� I have been a very happy customer for BH Photo for decades.� I told my kids to buy from them too.� We bought all the above items from BH.� The focusing loupe I use was made by Toyo (bought from BH in the 1990's) of which I didn't see it listed anymore here at BH.� Like others, I also wish (pray) when BH ships,� hard drives, lenses and/ or cameras to all of us, they will put the bubbles on the bottom of the shipping box to soften the impacts to these items during shipping INSTEAD OF PUTTING THE BUBBLE sheet on the top of these items??!!!.� If BH can do that all the time, I will be a 105% happy customer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If You Can Buy It I thank all those good reviews in helping me to make the dive in buying this Zeiss 100mm 7 months. Don't spend your money on it if you are pressing for time or you need a lens to take fast action shots because until you master the manual focusing skills on using manual lenses, regardless which brand, you need that fast focusing ability of modern lenses to capture your action shots! Buy it only if you can afford the time to focus it right by using the focusing aid on you live view or screen. Focus confirmation on the camera helps a lot but it is not very accurate in all cases. The contrast and colors this lens and a few other of the Zeiss lenses that I have also used produced can bring out ordinary scenes amazing results that my other L lenses can't. You can easily search online videos and images on the quality of the Zeiss lenses. Buy it only you have already have other normal and decent quality auto focus lenses because only then you will realize what you have missed. There is no bad things about this lenses other than it is it is not light. I use it with a tripod about 85% of the time. I don't remember how heavy was the then new Leitz 90mm tele Elmarit I used in the 60's but I think this 100mm is heavier and bulkier than the 90mm. The end result of any thing you take with this lens as compare to your normally use auto focus modern lenses, it out shines them all easily. I like the natural colors, brilliant contrast and fine details this 100mm recorded on my shots. I like to give a thought to those who like to take close up pictures of insects and anything that is small and moving, in the Canon line, the Canon 180mm L is a must have lens, as least it is to me for years! The 180mm is one of the sharpest lenses money can buy in that focal range. Enjoy your shopping!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional resolution Really nice for close-ups and macro. I like the DOF that the 1:2 magnification provides; especially with crop frame.
