Carl Zeiss Makes EF Lenses for Canon

Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE Prime Lens for Canon EF Mount

German lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss today announced new lenses for the Canon EOS mount, the Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE and the Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE.

The company says both lenses, just like all EF lenses, transfer all information exclusively via electronic contacts. This means that all exposure modes such as programmed auto exposure, shutter priority, aperture priority and manual setting are supported. The camera’s automatic focus confirmation also remains available to an unlimited extent with these manual focus lenses, Carl Zeiss said.

The Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE (50mm/f1.4) and the Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE (85mm/f1.4) will be available in the last quarter of this year. The former will be priced at about €579 while the latter will retail for €999.
