- Zeiss Milvus 25mm F1.4 Lens— Pre-Order— B&H
High-speed wide-angle lens
Thanks to a maximum aperture of 1.4, this lens can capture exceptional images even in poor light conditions. “Even at full aperture, there are hardly any colour fringes,” says Casenave. “The finest details can be reproduced in high definition and contrast all the way into the corners.” The metal housing is what makes the lens robust, and its dirt and dust protection makes the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 ready for action even in adverse weather. The large 172-degree focus rotation angle enables precise manual focusing for adding creative touches to photos and videos.
The largest ZEISS lens family yet
Featuring eleven focal lengths ranging from 15 to 135 millimeters, including two macros, the ZEISS Milvus family covers a host of applications, such as portrait, landscape, architecture and street photography. “We can offer every photographer just the right lens they need” says Casenave.
Perfect for videographers
The four ZEISS Milvus focal lengths 25, 35, 50 and 85 millimeters with an aperture of 1.4 are perfect for videography. Thanks to their high speed, they are suitable primarily for interviews and documentaries where the videographer can utilize natural light. Thanks to the de-click function in the the Nikon-Mount version, the aperture can be adjusted continuously. In addition, ZEISS Lens Gears available in a range of sizes allow the use of follow-focus systems.
