My review of the Zeiss ZF 18mm f/3.5 Distagon is now complete, though I plan to add additional material for it and the other ZF lenses on a continuing basis, not to mention the ZF 21mm f/2.8 Distagon when it arrives on our shores. Existing Zeiss ZF Lenses subscribers please see the revision page for details on what’s been added for the ZF 18/3.5.
I think that the 18/3.5 Distagon will appeal especially to those who prefer black and white. Its superb contrast and tonal rendition is especially beautiful on the Nikon D3. (I am not so fond of its color rendition, details on that are in my review.) The image below was converted using Photoshop’s faux infrared filter; I am certain that such images can be made to really “sing” by someone well-versed in black and white post-processing techniques.
