Zeiss Announces Milvus 135mm f/2 for Nikon and Canon DSLRs

See my Zeiss DSLR lenses wish list and other wish lists at B&H Photo.

Get the new Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 at B&H Photo.

See also last year’s Understanding the new Zeiss Milvus Lineup.

With the same optical formula as the Zeiss ZF.2/ZE 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar but improved lens coatings, the Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 drops the APO designation, this being the new naming approach and not one I’m a fan of, but there it is.

The Milvus badge means the Milvus ergonomics and weather sealing, a big plus for the 135/2, which I can testify to by direct handling.
