Zeiss Milvus 100mm f/2M: Many Examples + Bokeh Aperture Series

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

The about $1843 Zeiss Milvus 100mm f/2M is my preferred all-around telephoto. While marketed as a macro lens, it is also superb at distance with “high and flat” MTF free of field curvature plus no focus shift and no distortion and unrivalled bokeh. It delivers richly saturated colors with very high contrast. No other lens in its range can pull all that together. So many shots just have that special quality to them that I don’t see in other lenses in its range.

I’ve published a whole range of examples, including an aperture series showing the very special bokeh style as well as a second bokeh page:

All pages include images up to 28 megapixels.
