The new Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/35 ZE is a high-speed, moderate wide-angle lens with a maximum 2.0 aperture that fits all analog and digital EOS cameras. The company said its classic 35 mm focal length is particularly well-suited for advertising, travel and nature photography as it captures dynamic perspectives with high depth of focus and few distortions.
For the growing number of photographers and videographers using DSLRs for movie making, the Distagon T* 2/35 ZE is one of four prime lenses making a core set, joining the Distagon T* 2/28 ZE, Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE and Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE. These lenses are well suited for HD video applications due not only to their exceptional image quality, but for the smooth focus and long focus rotations, according to Carl Zeiss.
The Distagon T* 2/35 ZE will begin shipping on November 16th for a suggested retail price of $870.
