Zeiss has just announced the Milvus 25mm f/1.4 lens, adding the 11th lens to the Milvus family of full frame DSLR lenses. It’s the fourth Milvus lens to have fixed aperture of f/1.4, joining the 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm.
The Zeiss Milvus 25mm f/1.4 was developed for Canon and Nikon DSLR users who shoot landscape and architecture, as well as for photojournalists who need a wide lens for photos and videos.
“The completely new optical design ensures superior performance across the entire image field,” says Zeiss Product Manager Christophe Casenave. “This results in high-contrast photos and a harmonious bokeh.
“Even at full aperture, there are hardly any color fringes. The finest details can be reproduced in high definition and contrast all the way into the corners.”
The lens features a durable metal body that’s protected against dirt and dust. The focus ring has a 172-degree focus rotation angle that allows for precise manual focusing. The Nikon version of the lens has a de-click function for smooth and continuous aperture adjustments.
