BH #ZE8514ZEC • MFR #1677-838
ZEISS Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZE Lens for Canon EF
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • ZEISS T* Anti-Reflective Coating
  • Manual Focus Design
A classic portrait-length prime, the Canon EF-mount Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZE from ZEISS is a short telephoto lens, ideal for producing shallow depth of field effects and isolating focus on subject matter. Beyond offering increased control over depth of field, the bright f/1.4 maximum aperture also excels in difficult lighting conditions and suits handheld shooting in low-light situations. The Planar-type optical concept is a tried-and-true design that yields consistently high sharpness throughout the focusing range with even illumination throughout the aperture range. Also, a T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy.

question

Help. I can't seem to find in any discussion whether the Zeiss Planar T*85mm f/1.4 ZF (not the ZF.2) will work on a Nikon d810. May I know the difference between the ZF and th ZF.2?
Asked by: Dino Q.
ZF lenses act as any AI lens would on the D810 you have to enter it in the non-cpu lens data on the setup menu you then have access to the aperture priority and manual modes only on the camera you also gain ttl flash and center weighted and matrix metering... if you don't enter the lens data you only get manual and center weighted metering with the lens of course you have to set the aperture ring like the good old days bu you get a display in the viewfinder ... my 35mm ZF works great and I only ever use manual anyway (sometimes A mode)
