With an angle of view of 110°, the Zeiss 15mm f2.8 Milvus ZF.2 for Nikon is a super-wide-angle, high-quality lens. Designed to prevent chromatic aberration and colour fringes, it is made up of 15 optical elements in 12 groups which include two aspheric lenses, special glass materials with exceptional partial dispersion, and a floating elements design. A detachable lens hood is also included.
Key Features Zeiss 15mm f2.8 Milvus ZF.2 – Nikon Fit
Excellent Imagery, Even In Difficult Light Conditions
This lens features a T* antireflective coating from ZEISS, which achieves outstanding stray light reduction by combining a number of optimally matched measures. In addition, the edges of the lens are provided with a special pitch-black lacquer in a complex manual process. Light traps in mechanical components and specially designed surfaces are integrated to prevent the occurrence of reflections.
Future-Proof Solution for High-Resolution Camera Systems
Thanks to the low level of stray light allowed by the lens design, high-contrast images are also possible with increasing high dynamic ranges of the sensors (HDR). The minimization of coma, astigmatism and spherical aberrations enables constantly high resolution over the entire image field. The optics are designed to ensure full utilization of the performance provided by high-resolution camera systems. Regardless of what the future holds – with the Milvus lenses from ZEISS you are optimally equipped any time, any place.
Creative Still and Video Photography Through Precise, Manual Focusing
Manually focusing a lens means controlling and therefore actively composing an image gently and precisely from your fingertips. Here, a good ergonomic design makes all the difference. ZEISS Milvus lenses feature a large rotation angle which enables pinpoint focusing. The top-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without backlash, optimally supporting the photographer’s creative interplay with the focal plane of high-speed fixed focal lengths. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder or display. The engraving in meters and feet, and the focus scale provide additional support for manual focusing. The silent, continuous aperture setting (de-click function with ZF.2 mount) and the long focusing range lay optimal conditions for video photography.
Long-Lasting Product With Protection Against Environmental Influences
An optimized ergonomic design enables fatigue-free photography and reduces camera shake. The all-metal housing makes every adjustment a haptic experience. The dynamic, precise barrel design sets new trends in the world of camera lenses. However, the ZEISS Milvus lenses will impress you not only due to their visual and haptic excellence, but also thanks to their inner qualities. Special seals for protection against dust and splashes expand the photographer’s creative potential by guaranteeing the system’s functional reliability even in environmentally difficult situations.
Stable Image Performance Over The Entire Focusing Range
State-of-the-art camera systems and high-resolution digital image sensors are now demanding more and more performance from the lenses. The Floating Elements Design permits constantly high image performance in the focal plane – from the minimum object distance to infinity. This is accomplished by changing the axial distance between individual lens elements or element groups. The adjustment of the element spacing is coupled to the distance setting so that it always results in the right correction. The mechanical design of the ZEISS Milvus lenses is highly complex and the workmanship must be extremely exact – both specialties of ZEISS.
