ZEISS 15mm f/2.8 Distagon Examples

See my initial review of the Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon in my Guide to Zeiss ZF / ZE Lenses, as well as my previous post on the 15mm f/2/.8 Distagon technical details.

I would have liked to shoot the 15/2.8 Distagon while in Death Valley, but it arrived after I returned from my trip. But I already have some places I am sure to put it to use there.

It was rainy yesterday (California winter in March), but I found that the built-in lens hood of the Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon does a suprisingly good job of keeping the front element well protected. In 3 hours, I only had to clean off raindrops once, during a steady drizzle.

None of these images have any color saturation added. The 15/2.8 Distagon just has exceptional color saturation naturally.

I had to add a ton of Fill Light to this heavily backlit image (less than ideal lighting to be sure!). No color fringing— amazing. Though I converted to B&W in the end.

Close up goes to 1:9. Careful! There is only 3.5" of clearance to the front element. I got the bezel around the front element wet while taking this shot.

Distortion is impressively low, a gentle barrel distortion. Professional work might demand correction, but it’s awfully good as-is.

Winter brought a record drought this year, but spring rain has come with a vengeance!

The color saturation of the 15/2.8 Distagon combined with its high contrast and almost complete freedom from color fringing brings exceptional realism to images.
