ZEISS Lens Sets Overview

  • 1Description

The Carl Zeiss ZE SLR Lens Case Set For Canon EF Mount consists of five powerful T* lenses and a specially-designed waterproof case.

The lenses can be used for both photography and filmmaking. They are designed with Zeiss' famous T* anti-reflective coating which allows almost 100% light transmission and thereby reduces light loss and highly increases sharpness and contrast. Each lens comes with its own hood, front and rear caps, test certificate, manual, and 2-year manufacturer's warranty. All five lenses are Canon EF mount.

The case for the lenses is tough and relevant. Lightweight, waterproof, dustproof and crushproof, it contains six inserts, five of which the accompanying lenses fit perfectly into, and in which they are protected from any shock or vibration. The sixth insert can take on another lens, or can conveniently be used to hold anything from a sandwich to a set of keys (or both). The case is 19" x 14" in L x W.

The entire set offers a substantial savings over its contents sold separately.

The lenses of the set, each designed for creative precision with a particular type of photography, are:

21mm Distagon f/2.8 T* ZE
A super wide lens that can close in just over 8". It's non-reflecting and distortion-free, and so outputs images with contrast and color. Made with floating lens elements, it keeps performance from edge to edge at all distances. A great color control prevents color fringes even along high-contrast contour edges.
28mm Distagon f/2.0 T* ZE
A moderate wide lens with a large rotation angle allowing precise focusing. Compact, lightweight and wide at f/2, it can be used to great effect in handheld photography. Designed with floating lens elements, it maintains consistency across all distances.
35mm Distagon f/2.0 T* ZE
Medium wide, its short focus rotation and wide f/2 aperture enable it to quickly shoot handheld at sudden, unexpected moments. Built with floating lens elements, it maintains performance across the entire image area.
50mm Planar f/1.4 T* ZE
A normal lens designed for medium and longer distances, it captures images in as natural a look as possible under the various light conditions. It performs very well wide open, but does even better when stopped down. Sporting a large rotation angle, it captures in high contrast with its standard 50mm focal length.
85mm Planar f/1.4 T* ZE
A short telephoto lens with a standard focal length of 85mm, it reaches 128mm when attached to a DSLR with a crop factor of 1.5. A long barrel rotation offers precision with either focal length. Fully wide, it attains a shallow depth of field; and an almost completely circular diaphragm produces an excellent bokeh.

ZEISS Lens Sets Reviews

ZE SLR Lens Case Set For Canon EF Mount is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome be thy name The Bokeh produced by this set of lenses is excellent. I find my imagery taking on new life. The price was fair and the product has been nothing but top of the line. Ziess and B&H Photo have outdone themselves in this arena. Thank you for giving me something that can truly take my business to the next level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For filming use These lenses have to be the best value money can buy. As a RED user, I've used the CP2 many times and its cost me more to rent them. The ZEs are the same glass therefore the same picture quality. They are only a still lens and some mods are required. They can be tedious as they are not all the same length so follow focus has to bee adjusted each time. But for the money, its well worth the effort if CP2s aren't within your budget. The only drawback is that they don't have manual aperture as the ZFs but still works well with RED cameras. The contrasts are nice, the color is bluer than Canon, the bokeh is nice and creamy, a good lens set. The case is great Pelican case with laser foam however if you add follow focus gearing, the foam will have to be modified or replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent set, Excellent value I use these lenses for music video and reality TV production. They're razor sharp, even wide open, built like tanks, and include a stand that seems to be able to withstand any sort of abuse. The only issue I have with the product is the limited resale value of the lenses, since no boxes are included for each, and limited documentation compared to when purchasing them separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ***** Amazing set of lenses. The build quality is fantastic. Comes in a very nice pelican case which I'm sure you could take into combat. A little heavy so I wouldn't recommend carrying them around in it, but very nice none the less. The lenses themselves are great. Amazing contrast and the manual focus is very smooth and easy to use. In my mind the IQ, bokeh and briliant color make these lenses well worth the $$$. I would buy them again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit for great video I've been using this kit to shoot video with a 5D, 7D and RED with EOS mount set up. They work great on all three, giving a sharp image with a more blue/magenta flare and image in general. I love the resistance of the focal rings on these lenses, it gives a smooth focus rack and with the right gear, can instantly be turned into a CP style of lens. In fact, these lenses yield a similar result to the more expensive CP set of lenses. The 85mm is currently my favorite. It is extremely sharp and is great for any type of shot involving a person/people. The case works very well and is definitely bullet proof. It would work great for a rental house or for someone who is looking to rent the lenses out personally. For me, it was a decision between these lenses, or a camera body and I am happy that I invested in the lenses rather than a camera body that will only produce professional level production for a limited time. Hoping that these lenses will last me for a very long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best prime set I've seen Professionally packaged and carefully inspected. The lenses take the most crisp and vivid videos and pictures then any other lens I've used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My videos have acquired a new level. I was uncertain at first about buying the whole set, but after testing them out and doing video with them this is my conclusion: I got well priced set, which feels like a good investment. A crispier image and more cinematic look/feel. (I used regular Canon EFS lenses) Less noise on my camera which I use in night or low light.
