Zeiss 25mm f/2.0 Distagon T* ZE/ZF.2 Lens Announced
The Zeiss 25mm f/2.0 Distagon T* ZE and ZF.2 Lenses
were announced yesterday.
I had the pleasure of using the Zeiss 25mm f/2.0 Distagon T* ZE Lens at PhotoPlus Expo in New York City yesterday.
The build quality of this lens is on par with the other Zeiss ZE lenses
- which is to say that this is an incredibly-well built lens. Zeiss ZF.2 Nikon mount lenses are built similarly to the ZE Canon mount counterparts. This lens is rather small (does not take up much space in a bag), but solid feeling (if you fill all the space in your bag with similar Zeiss lenses, your back may regret you having done so).
Image quality from this lens is expected to be on the level of the great Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 ZE Distagon Lens
' image quality.

Just a heads up to let you know that, due to an increase in manufacturing costs, the prices for the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 ZE Distagon Lens
and Zeiss 35mm f/2 ZE Distagon Lens
will increase Feb 1st.
These are two really nice lenses. If either is on your shopping list, now would be the time to place the order.

Cine Lenses with Maximum Flexibility
Compact Prime CP.2 lenses from Carl Zeiss now also with F-mount
In 4th quarter of 2010, ZEISS Compact Prime CP.2 lenses will be available with F-mount. The Compact Prime CP.2 series, presented last April, were the first lenses developed especially for shooting with HDSLR cameras. Since then, the lenses have been highly sought after by cinematographers and film photographers alike. In addition to the PL-, EF- and F-mount, Carl Zeiss will soon also be offering the Compact Prime CP.2 lenses with Micro 4/3 and A-mount.
The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses’ inter- changeable mount means the lenses can be used for many purposes. The lenses have a compact and robust build so that they can handle any demand on the film set.
“With the new enhancement of mounts we want to meet the needs of our customers”, says Michael Schiehlen, Head of Sales of Carl Zeiss AG Camera Lens Division. “The possibility of using our CP.2 lenses flexibly for three different camera systems is not only interesting for new customers. Stores that rent cameras and camera equipment also benefit from the lenses’ enhanced flexibility.”
Just in time for the IBC in Amsterdam, Carl Zeiss has announced two new focus lengths that will also be available with F-mount: Compact Prime CP.2 50 mm/T2.1 Makro and CP.2 100mm/T2.1 CF. They complement the seven focal lengths from 18 to 85 millimeters that are already available.
