Carl Zeiss Launches New Distagon T* 3.5/18 ZE Wide Angle Lens

The new Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 3.5/18 ZE ultra-wide lens for Canon EOS SLRs will start shipping in autumn 2009 at a retail price of €1,049 or about US$1,530.

The new lens boasts an extremely wide 99°-angle view that is suitable especially for full-frame sensor cameras in landscape and architecture photography.

Carl Zeiss said despite its short focal length, the Distagon T* 3.5/18 ZE has an extremely compact design compared to other zoom lenses in its category. Internal focusing also helps to reduce its size while delivering extremely precise and smooth focus control.
