Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 Lens Review (Ephotozine)

Zeiss Milvus 85mm F1.4 mounted on Nikon D600John Riley has just posted a full review of the new released Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 lens at the Ephotozine. It is an ideal portrait lens with low distortion and very fast manual focusing. If the price can be afforded and the lack of AF is acceptable then the Zeiss Milvus is one of the very best 85mm lenses available.

Conclusions From the Ephotozine “The Milvus 85mm f/1.4 is without doubt a superb lens. It is fairly bulky, quite heavy, but well balanced. It is a gorgeous example of fine engineering. But above all the fast 85mm is a very exciting lens to use, offering a very pleasant perspective on the world, whether for portraits, landscapes, street photography, close range sports or any other short telephoto applications. The wide aperture offers the ability to continue shooting as the light fails. The price may be high and there’s no AF, but the other qualities shine out and certainly justify giving it very serious consideration…”

They also posted several beautiful sample images taken with Nikon D810. Just enjoy!
