Can this lens be used on a Nikon Z7 with the Techart adapter?
Asked by: Photographybyyervant
While it could work being completely manually controlled there are probably better options available to you.

Is it true that with this auto focus lens for ...

Is it true that with this auto focus lens for astrophotography you can achieve infinity focus for stars by turning the focus ring all the way to the end where it stops? I have a difficult time focusing in the dark and this sounds too good to be true.
Asked by: Cheryl
This is NOT an auto focus lens. But yes because it is manual focus you can just turn the focus ring to INF and you are done.

How does the Loxia 21mm f2.8 compare to Leica's 21mm M 3.4 lens?
Asked by: Robert
The ZEISS Loxia 21mm f/2.8 Lens for Sony E is very comparable to the Leica Super-Elmar-M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH. Lens, but with a wider maximum aperture. The Leica lens has the edge optically, which is why the price is more than twice that of the Zeiss Loxia lens.

question

Searching for a video lens, and auto aperture is useful to me in certain situations. If I have auto aperture selected on the a9, will the camera be able to change the aperture value of the lens, or is this lens true manual ? The description only says its manual focus.. Thanks,
Asked by: Chris
The camera cannot change the aperture. This has to be done manually but you can de-click the aperture so for video you can open and close the aperture very smoothly. ps. I ordered two of these lenses from BandH and they sent me ones that had obviously been previously used. Make sure that you test the lens for sharpness and signs of wear if you buy it here!

question

Does this lens have focus breathing?
Asked by: Angelito
Yes, definitely noticeable in my copy when comparing closest focus to infinity. No doubt there are scenarios where this phenomenon matters but as an amateur enthusiast Ive never encountered any problems because of it. Definitely a fabulous lens.
