The Best Lenses of 2012

Lenses that are new in 2012 and are actually shipping and that I have reviewed and used extensively.

I am very picky, so this list is short.

Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon (for Nikon or Canon DSLR)

Amazing contrast and color correction with ultra low distortion, some regrettable field curvatre. Still, nothing quite like it. About $2950, Reviewed in Guide to Zeiss.

Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar would likely be on this list, but it has not arrived as yetx.

Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II

Canon’s best wide angle zoom, ever. Superb contrast and sharpness, though with some unavoidable field curvature.

About $2300, Reviewed in DAP.

Olympus 75mm f/1.8 ED (Micro Four Thirds)

Fast but compact lens offering superb sharpness.

About $899, Reviewed in Guide to Mirrorless.
