ZEISS 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by its fast maximum aperture and advanced optical design, the Canon EF-mount Milvus 35mm f/1.4 ZE from ZEISS is a versatile wide-angle prime well-suited to an array of subjects, ranging from portraiture to landscape shooting. Its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture greatly benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers enhanced control over depth of field for using selective focus techniques. Complementing the focusing control is a sophisticated Distagon-type optical design, which employs one rear aspherical element and five anomalous partial dispersion elements to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved 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.

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 35mm f/1.4 lens is designed for full-frame format Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 56mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also offers extensive control over depth of field.
Five anomalous partial dispersion elements are featured in the optical design, and help to virtually eliminate color fringing and chromatic aberrations for greater image clarity and color accuracy.
Distagon optical concept uses one rear aspherical element to control spherical aberrations and distortion in order to provide a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
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.
Nine-blade rounded diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
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 35mm f/1.4 reviews

    Milvus 35mm f/1.4 ZE Lens for Canon EF is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile upgrade from 35/1.4 Distagon "classic" I bought the new Milvus as an upgrade to my Distagon "classic" version that I've used and loved for years. Having read reviews, I knew that the new version has improved color correction, among other things, but I was concerned that the "classic" wonderful wide-open bokeh would be altered. I needn't have worried. I've tested identical compositions, lens-to-lens, and bokeh is virtually identical from both lenses at both close range (flowers) and medium distance. It also retains the classic's lovely 3D rendering. Color correction has received major improvement. Green and violet "color bokeh" are almost entirely gone, as is violet fringing on high-contrast items (twigs, backlit leaves, etc). Corner to corner sharpness is likewise improved, with even sharpness over the frame. While I can't say that it's at Otus level wide open, it's close, and is basically Otus quality stopped down a few stops. It's a solid refinement over the "classic" that I can see using on increasingly high-definition cameras well into the future. I use it on a Sony A7RII with Metabones adapter.
