Carl Zeiss Unveils Super Wide Angle Distagon T* 2.8/21 Lens

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2.8/21 Lens

Carl Zeiss has introduced the Distagon T* 2.8/21, a new new 21mm super wide angle lens for SLR cameras with EF, F and K bayonets. This is the modern version of the lens from the former Contax system.

“The outstanding correction of chromatic aberration enables photos without color fringes even in high-contrast light conditions”, says Martin Klottig, Marketing Manager, Carl Zeiss Camera Lens Division. “Even at full aperture, the floating element design ensures optimum edge-to-edge image quality over the entire focusing range. And even in difficult light conditions, the new Distagon provides excellent results thanks to its T* coating, optimum reflection reduction and exceptional chromatic correction.”

The new wide angle lens will start to ship by the end of this year. Its selling price is estimated at about €1,400 (including German VAT), which should translate to less than $1,900 in the U.S.
