ZEISS Milvus 25mm f/1.4 Overview

An impressive wide-angle lens featuring an equally impressive bright maximum aperture, the Nikon F-mount Milvus 25mm f/1.4 ZF.2 from ZEISS is a versatile prime well-suited to variety of shooting applications, including landscape, nature, architecture, interior, and astrophotography. Its fast 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 two aspherical elements and seven 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.

The 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.

Wide-angle prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 37.5mm equivalent focal length.
Impressively bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Distagon optical concept affords high sharpness, well-corrected image quality from edge-to-edge, and very low field curvature.
Seven anomalous partial dispersion elements are used to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and color fidelity.
Two aspherical elements control distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and more accurate rendering.
ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections and provide greater contrast and color fidelity.
Floating elements system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range, from 9.8" to infinity.
Manual focus design is benefitted by focusing and depth of field scales along with hard stops at both infinity and minimum focusing positions.
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.

Hi, is this lens suitable for astrophotography?
Asked by: Anas
Yes, however like the answer below, the 18mm is better. It does not have a true infinity focus. You must focus and tape it down before you lose the light.

With an adapter canon to sony FE, does it share metadata with a FX9, does it let the Gyro data and recognize the focal lenght?
Asked by: Yann
From information made available to us, adapted lenses that have electronic contacts/communication will share lens EXIF metadata, such as focal length and manufacturer. In regards to Catalyst stabilization, according to Sony, the FX9's gyro-data for post-processing is recorded using the camera's gyroscope and the lens will likely have no bearing on it.

question

Is this lens compatible with the Nikon D500?
Asked by: Hans-Dieter
I have used one on the D850 for four months and it is exquisite. The dynamic range is better than I remember the scene with my naked eye. Doesn't seem possible but the proof is there --- shadow detail, no washed-out highlights.

question

Is this Manual Focus?
Asked by: Shawn
As with all the ZEISS Milvus lenses, the Milvus 1.4/25 ZE lens is manual focus. The lens does couple to the camera, meta data is transferred, aperture is controlled electronically and focus confirmation is active.
