Zeiss Macro-Planar 50mm f/2 ZF.2 lens for Nikon SLR Cameras
The Speed Macro
The Makro-Planar T* 2/50 ZF.2 (with CPU) is the fastest 50 mm macro lens for the 24 x 36 full frame. Very high image quality over the entire focusing range from infinity to the close-focus limit at half life-size. Optical system with floating element and longlife full metal precision mechanics.
The ZF.2 lenses are now available in 8 x focal lengths: 3,5/18, 2,8/21, 2/25, 2.8/25, 2/28, 1.4/35, 2/35, 1,4/50, and 1,4/85 and a Macro-Planar T 2/50 & Macro-Planar T 2/100
Thanks to its electronic interface (CPU), these new ZEISS lenses support all-important operations such as the automatic mechanisms for time, aperture setting and program. The CPU also supports manual exposure settings, including those for camera casings that are not AI-compatible. These quicker and faster handling capabilities of the ZF.2 lenses are especially useful under hectic shooting conditions.
ZEISS lenses truly come into their own in situations that demand extreme photographic creativity and maximum image quality. Carl Zeiss' established fixed focal length lenses are known for their high light sensitivity and precise manual handling, leaving the photographer in full control. The new ZF.2 series will be especially interesting for photo enthusiasts who value creative, high-quality images combined with the comfort of automatic settings.
Martin Klottig, Marketing Manager of the Camera Lens Division at Carl Zeiss AG: 'œThe ZF.2 lenses are ideal tools for photographers who want to concentrate more on the subject than on their camera equipment. Whether at a wedding, a toddler's first steps or impressions from faraway countries, these lenses are perfect for photographers who want to capture once-only moments quickly and accurately. These situations demand first-class technology that captures spontaneous actions without too much effort and delivers fantastic images each time.'
