Carl Zeiss Rolls Out New Distagon T* 2/28 ZE Lens

Carl Zeiss introduces the wide-angle lens Distagon T* 2/28 ZE with EF bayonet for use with all analog and digital EOS camera models. With an initial aperture opening of 1:2, Carl Zeiss says it is among the fastest lenses of its kind in its focal length. From landscape photography at dawn to interior shots under available light, the Distagon T* 2/28 ZE offers photographers plenty of room for creativity for hand held photography, the company said.

The new Distagon T* 2/28 ZE boasts a compact build while offering fast aperture and complex retro-focus construction.

Even with its wide angle, the lens enables photographers to play fully with an image’s depth of focus. With a wide aperture opening, for example, the photographer can effectively separate the motif from its background. With a small aperture opening, photographers can use the sharpness of the lens system for the entire image range. Carl Zeiss adds that the new lens is also ideally suited for shooting HD video due to its wide focus rotation, superb image quality and minimal breathing characteristics.

The Distagon T* 2/28 ZE will begin shipping on October 20th for a suggested retail price of $1,080.
