ZEISS Tele-Tessar T* overview

  • 1Description

Using a classic Tessar design, the black Tele-Tessar T* 85mm f/4 ZM from ZEISS is a sleek short telephoto prime for M-mount rangefinder cameras. Using the simple but effective optical design, this lens achieves notable sharpness and clarity, along with virtually no distortion. Its longer-than-normal focal length produces a slight compression for a unique visual quality that is well-suited to portraiture, as well as landscape and other documentary applications. A T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to resist flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity, and its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3' away.

Using a Tessar optical concept, the simple design is able to achieve a high degree of sharpness and clarity, with virtually no distortion, while maintaining a compact form factor.
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 3'.
A 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality.

    ZEISS Tele-Tessar T* reviews

    Tele-Tessar T* 85mm f/4 ZM Lens (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As sharp as the Apo-Summicron M I wanted a lighter travel 90mm lens as I was leaving the 500g Leica Summicron out of the bag too often. The Zeiss 85mm lens is just as sharp and contrasty all the way into the edges even open at f/4. The lens hood is reversible keeping things compact for carrying; only down side is the hood sits in place, but does not lock in place in the reversed position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens For M-9 Users This lens for Leica M-9 Camera users is a great addition for anyone who wants to add a wonderful Portrait Lens to their collection. Its easy to carry ,comes with it's own Lens Shade, and absolutely lives up to the Zeiss Tessar T* family name.
    Date published: 2011-05-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class for size and weight. Great landscape 85mm I use this lens on my Sony A7RII mirrorless. This is an incredibly small and light lens but tremendous optics. It is slow at f4 but for landscapes and general photography it is incredibly sharp corner to corner. Optimal image quality about f5.6
    Date published: 2016-12-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! This is a great lens for a Leica M digital camera when use as a travel lens. Its sharp and well made.
