Zeiss ZF.2 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar for Nikon released for sale

Zeiss ZF 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar

Carl Zeiss USA informs me that the Zeiss ZF.2 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar for Nikon has been released for sale in the US, which means it should show up in the channel this week, perhaps as early as tomorrow.

You can pre-order the Zeiss ZF.2 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar from our trusted sponsor B&H Photo , a smart move if you want one soon; I suspect that it will be a popular lens, as some buyers have no doubt held off the original ZF 100/2 anticipating the new model.

The 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar is a standout performer in the Zeiss ZF / Zeiss ZE line (lenses are all optically identical for Canon/Nikon/Pentax). It's a reference lens whenever I test new cameras or lenses, with corner-to-corners sharpness wide-open at f/2, as well as gorgeous bokeh, a flat field, and high performance close up and at infinity.

There isn't really anything else like it, nor anything else I'd rather shoot in that focal length range (unless I needed autofocus). The 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar makes an excellent complement to the 100/2. Those two, along with the 21/2.8 Distagon make a versatile high performance kit. See all Zeiss ZF.2 lenses for Nikon and all Zeiss ZE lenses for Canon.
