A versatile wide-angle prime designed for M-mount rangefinder cameras, the silver Distagon T* 18mm f/4 ZM Lens from Zeiss provides an immense 98° angle of view to suit photographing wide-open expanses or tight, narrow interior locations with dimensional fidelity. Employing a Distagon optical design, distortion is significantly reduced for a realistic portrayal of scenes and both brightness and sharpness are maintained from edge to edge. A T* anti-reflective coating has also been added to individual lens elements to control flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions for increased contrast and color neutrality.

Sporting a modest f/4 maximum aperture, this lens is comfortable to use in a variety of lighting conditions and also maintains a compact form factor that is well-suited to inconspicuous rangefinder photography. An all-metal design affords both durability and excellent response, especially in regard to the manual focus control, which is further benefitted by an integrated finger rest for improved focusing speed and precision.
