Its relatively bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is suitable for working in difficult lighting conditions while shooting handheld.

Also, a T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual elements, and a lens hood is integrated into the lens's design, to control lens flare and ghosting.

Ultra wide-angle prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 22.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in available-light conditions and is also well-suited for astrophotography use.
Distagon optical design affords high sharpness, well-corrected image quality from edge-to-edge, and very low field curvature.
ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections and provide greater contrast and color fidelity.
Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 9.8".
All-metal lens barrel and mount offers high durability and rigidity.
Built-in petal-shaped lens hood blocks stray light and helps to reduce flare and ghosting.

Is the hood removable?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
It's not removable by the user, but Zeiss has a service that charges you $350 that removes the hood. It has to be shipped to Germany and it takes about two weeks.

question

Can I use this on a D500 or am I wasting my money seeing it's not full frame?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can certainly use it, and it would work wonderfully for things like astrophotography. The only potential downside is that it does not have an autofocus motor so it would not work best for other scenarios that involve more action or movement.

question

Can you put filters on this lens - the rectangular grad filters or a big stopper? Is there a bracket to attach the filters? I know it takes 95mm screw on filters, but I like to use the rectangular type.
Asked by: John
to use the big stopper i had to get the barrel modified by zeiss japan. the thread interface is now flush and will accept any filter mount that will screw onto 95mm.
