Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 ZK Lens

Lens maker Carl Zeiss has the new ZK Series of SLR lenses for the K bayonet mount.

Lenses for the K bayonet will initially be available as Distagon T* 2.8/25 and 2/35, Planar T* 1.4/50 and 1.4/85 as well as Makro-Planar T* 2/50 and 2/100.

The manually focused Zeiss SLR lenses (with their transmission elements) for the K bayonet fulfill the SMC-A standard and thus permit the utilization of the shutter priority, aperture priority and programmed auto exposure on all camera models with these features.

The first lens, Planar T* 1.4/50 will be available this month for about $680. The others will ship in Q4 2007.

Distagon T* 2.8/25 ZK – $906

Planar T* 1.4/85 ZK – $1190
Makro-Planar T* 2/50 ZK – $1190
