ZEISS Distagon T* 18mm f/4 ZM Lens (Silver)

BH #ZE184S • MFR #1440-731
ZEISS Distagon T* 18mm f/4 ZM Lens (Silver)
Key Features
  • Leica M-Mount Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/22
  • Three Low Dispersion Elements
  • ZEISS T* Anti-Reflective Coating
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 and three anomalous partial dispersion glass elements are also used to help control chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color fidelity throughout the aperture range. A T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual lens elements to control flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions for increased contrast and color neutrality. Additionally, the lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6' away.

A T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual lens elements to control flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions for increased contrast and color neutrality. Additionally, the lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6' away.

Employing a Distagon optical concept, this lens delivers virtually distortion-free performance that pairs well with the broad angle of view.
Three anomalous partial dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved color accuracy and clarity.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 1.6'.
