ZEISS 1970-246 overview

  • 1Description

The 95mm Carl ZEISS T* Circular Polarizer Filter from ZEISS helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. A polarizer is able to absorb much of this polarized light and, in turn, increase the saturation of skies and foliage, cut through distant haze, and minimize reflections in glass and on water.

A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it integrates a quarter wave plane within a linear polarizing filter. The addition of this helps to circularly polarize reflected light, which enables your camera's autofocus and auto-exposure mechanisms to function properly.

The T* anti-reflective coating helps to reduce reflections on the filter's surface and promote a better light transmission for high quality imagery. The filter ring is designed with a slim profile to allow its use on wide angle lenses, but front filter threads are still available for the use of additional filters.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
T* anti-reflective helps to reduce surface reflections in order to produce greater light transmission for a higher quality image.

    ZEISS 1970-246 reviews

    95mm Carl ZEISS T* Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Polarizer, but.... Nice filter, but I experienced vignetting at all apertures when used with the Zeiss Milvus 15mm and Canon 5 DSR combination. Some corners were black or darkened while other corners were lighter with a purplish shade, making it very difficult to correct in Lightroom. Other than this issue, the filter is fine. Spins smoothly and does what a polarizer does. However, I returned to B&H who processed the return in a courteous and timely manner. B&H was a pleasure to work with. I'll try another filter with the store credit that I received for the return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proper utilisation of Zeiss 15mm 2.8 T* First a clarification: you should always use polariser on wide or ultra-wide lens for nature/landscape photography. Only caution is with the blue sky, try to have blue sky less than 90 degree angle of view on your frame. If there are loads of cloud, ignore the caution. Now about the 95mm Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer Filter, optically it well match with Zeiss 15mm 2.8 Distagon, no degradation. I would say they are made for each other. This filter makes proper utilisation of Zeiss 15mm 2.8 T* Distagon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good results. I see no addition vignetting when used with the Zeiss 15mm lens, just the vignetting intrinsic in the lens design itself. Vignetting will occur if UV filter is left on when using the polarizer. Cost is very steep, but reviews of some other brands had described vignetting and I figured if I'd already sunk a lot of money into the lens, that I wouldn't want to take the chance of not being happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey... but worth it. The only polarizer that has no discernible vignetting on the Zeiss 15mm. I tried to go the less expensive route on two separate polarizers... no go... and I ended up spending nearly the same after it was all said and done. Lesson learned on this one... go with the manufacturers matched product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used on the Otus 28mm Great colors coming off the Otus when using the CP. If I had to mark down a half star, it's the price and the fact that you can't put the Otus front cap on this filter (which I found strange).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This is the only filter I've found that works well on the Zeiss Distagon 15mm ZF.2. No vignetting that I can see, even wide open. It's expensive, and from what I've heard it's slightly optically better than the Heliopan, although I've not had the chance to try out that one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit on Zeiss 15mm Lnes It adds a great asset to this great Zeiss 15mm wide angle lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, no vignetting on Zeiss 15mm Distagon Works great, easy to put on and remove, and no visible vignetting on the Zeiss 15mm Distagon, which is of course why you're probably looking at this CPL.
