All White Mountain Snowmen I’ve Met Prefer Weather-Resistant Zeiss Milvus

Get Sony A7R II mirrorless and Zeiss Milvus at B&H Photo.

This friendly fellow begged me for a top hat, so I obliged with the weather-resistant Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 Planar. He was disappointed that I did not have along the new Zeiss Elephantus 200mm f/1.4, as that would have been a better fit.

But not being too picky, the adornment was accepted with grudging satisfaction, we had a few beers* and all was well until I wanted my Milvus back. I had to bring out a gallon of water and explain that I already had consumed a bit too much fluid and that things might get a little “colorful” and that yellow was the perfect photographic color complement to bluish snow... but in the end we parted on good terms.

Not recommended in general, the Milvus lens hood can be used to scrape snow if need be. Now if only one side were sharp I could lose some beard.

* I don’t drink beer and I don’t take alchohol on my trips (this note to aid the humor-impaired crowd over at dpreview).
