ZEISS 135mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

A prime medium telephoto characterized by its apochromatic designation, the Nikon F-mount Milvus 135mm f/2 ZF.2 Lens from ZEISS features a bright maximum aperture along with a sophisticated optical design. The Sonnar design utilizes four anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to nearly eliminate chromatic aberrations and other distortions for clean, well-corrected imagery. A floating elements system is also used, for consistent performance throughout the focusing and aperture ranges, in order to achieve even sharpness and clarity. An enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to significantly reduce ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in difficult lighting conditions.

Its manual focus design is complemented by a rubberized focus ring for fine-tuned, precise control over your focus position. This ZF.2 lens also features a manual aperture ring that can be manually de-clicked for silent, stepless switching between aperture setting to benefit video applications. 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 135mm f/2 lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, and can also be used with DX models where it will provide a 202.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also offers extensive control over depth of field.
Apochromatic Sonnar optical design utilizes four anomalous partial dispersion elements to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for increased clarity, sharpness, and color fidelity.
Floating elements system maintains consistent performance when working with both close-up and distant subjects.
Enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and flare for high contrast, color-neutral imagery.
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.
The manual aperture ring has clicked indicators throughout aperture range. Using the included De-Click Tool, this ring can be mechanically 'de-clicked' for smooth, silent rotation throughout the aperture range; making it ideal for video applications.
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 135mm f/2.0 reviews

    Milvus 135mm f/2 ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful monster First: this lens is huge and heavy. Bring your A game, because you will need it to focus this bad boy. That said, when you nail it, this lens will reward you with some of the best results you can find. So practice practice practice. Spectacular? Sublime? I don't know how many adjectives you need. It lives up to, and in my opinion even exceeds its reputation. Easily one of the best lenses I've used; a lifetime investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portrait lens I used this lens with my D800, very sharp focus and colors are wonderful, I like background and foreground diffusion and images are 3 dimensional, I own Nikon 85mm F1.4 g, but this lens is way better for portrait. This my 1st manual focus lens, I like it. I'm now fan of Zeiss, and will be adding more prime lens to my collection

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the Industry Zeiss overall is the best in the industry. Anyone and everyone knows that. Now for this lens. It's great! The focus ring is very smooth and accurate. Wide open it's extremely sharp. The quality and difference with the picture taken SOOC is awesome. It's a great foundation for editing and to make your images pop. It is heavy. But again you get into that with this particular lens and quality. The hood I have mixed feelings. With the great glass and coatings theres no flare, CA, etc. With the size of the lens I really don't think you need a hood. So it's more of a personal choice at this point. Works great though. Snaps in really well, all metal construction. This is a lens that you keep. It's an investment. Main uses: Portraits ONLY. Wedding Portraits and Engagement Portraits in particular. I say this cause of the manual focus. Grown adults know how to hold still. So you can really zero in on focus wide open or any AP for that matter. Kids and family, I would say no way. Just not going to happen with this lens unless you're a freakin stallion with focusing LOL .
