Carl Zeiss Unveils Distagon T* 1,4/35 Lens

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 1,4/35 Lens

The new Distagon T* 1,4/35 fixed lens from Carl Zeiss is a fast lens with short focal length and harmonious bokeh. It promises crisp, sharp images every time, whether at dusk or in the weak lighting conditions of a café, and without the need for a tripod.

With its 35mm focal length, Carl Zeiss says the Distagon T* 1,4/35 matches the classic and versatile standard focal lengths when used on cameras with APS-C sensor formats.

With its large focus ring, the company said photographers can also create highly accurate, sharp pictures, even at maximum aperture opening, according to the company. In addition, the optical construction of the lens guarantees high image quality across the entire image range, Carl Zeiss adds.

The Distagon T* 1,4/35 will be available in the first quarter of 2011 at an MSRP of €1385, or about $1800.
