What is the de-clicked function? I have a used Loxia lens, how to tell if the de-clicked function is disabled/enabled?
Asked by: JIONG
If the aperture ring stops at every f/ stop, the ring is "clicked" mode. If it does not (i.e., it turns smoothly) it is in "de-clicked" mode. You can click or de-click the lens by inserting the special Zeiss key (which comes with the lens) into a small slot in the back of the lens and turning it 90 degrees.

Has anyone tried this with the Anamorphot 1.33 ...

Has anyone tried this with the Anamorphot 1.33 Adapter? I know the 35mm Loxia is beautiful with the Anamorphot adapter from SLR Magic.
Asked by: James
You could attach this adapter with a step up ring such as the Sensei PRO 52-82mm Aluminum Step-Up Ring, B&H# SESURPA5282. However, your results may vary.

how much do I gain going from f2.8 to f2.4? Also how is this lens compared to Zeiss Batis f1.8?
Asked by: Anonymous
The question is inherently flawed. There is always a give and take with photography. Your question suggests the "best" lens is a f1.8 followed by a f2 and finally a f2.8. Sure a 1.8 sees more light but you also loose a lot of DOF/ focus is much trickier shadows can be muddy. Lenses are tools. You choose the right tool for the job so it depends what you are shooting and what the conditions are.

Will this lense work on the Lifepixle IR conversions w/o the Hot Spot ... I have with my Batis lenses... the Batis is all but useless due to this flaw. Please does anyone know ?
Asked by: Anonymous
The ZEISS camera lenses are designed for the visible spectrum and are not promoted for use with cameras with NIR or IR capability. The 'flaw' you refer to with the Batis lenses is not a problem with the lens, since it was never intended for use outside of the visible spectrum.
