Carl Zeiss has added new leness to its ZE (Canon) mount series: the Distagon T* 28mm f/2 ZE with EF bayonet mount fits Canon EOS cameras, including the 5D and 7D. For HDSLR shooting, the attractive features are the smooth mechanical focus, sharp optics, and compact size. You set the aperture through the Canon camera’s controls, via electronic contacts in the lens mount. Other lenses in the ZEISS ZE series are 18mm f/3.5, 21mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, and 85mm f/1.4, with more to come.
The Distagon T* 2/28 ZE begins shipping on October 20, with a suggested retail price of $1,080. For more information, go to www.zeiss.com/photo.
