Shootout: Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 Distagon vs Nikon 14mm f/2.8D ED: Alpine Creek, Low View

See my Zeiss DSLR lens wish list and get Zeiss Milvus at B&H Photo.

This series is a close-range evaluation of sharpness of the Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 versus the about $1892 Nikon AF NIKKOR 14mm f/2.8D ED. At this close range, many a lens breaks down in the outer zones and/or shows excessive field curvature and/or color correction. and/or reduced micro contrast.

Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 Distagon vs Nikon 14mm f/2.8D ED: Alpine Creek, Low View

Includes images from f/2.8 through f/11 at up to full camera resolution, with commentary and large crops. Also includes a 3-frame focus stack at f/11.

As this was written, the ZF.2 and ZE predecessors of the Milvus 15mm f/2.8 are a whopping $1051 off for both Nikon and Canon mount. Those non-Milvus versions differ only in slightly less good lens coatings and are priced essentially the same as the about $1892 Nikon 14mm f/2.8D ED, making the Zeiss lenses a screaming deal.
