Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 Examples: Eastern Sierra

Get Zeiss Milvus at B&H Photo. See also my Zeiss DSLR lenses wish list.

I hadn’t shot the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar for a while, and I caught some images at sunset and dusk a few days ago that reminded me just how good it is.

Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 Examples: Eastern Sierra (Nikon D850)

Includes images up to full camera resolution. Some images shown in both black and white and color.

With all the excellent new Sigma and Canon lenses, and while manual focus is a real limitation for some shooting, the color/spectral transmission and high contrast of Zeiss lenses still seems to have something special to my eye.

My all-time favorite trio of wide angles are the Milvus 18/2.8, 25/1.4, 35/1.4. Unbeatable! The 15/2.8 is terrific also, but I find that 18mm works better for me in most shooting situations, and the 18/2.8 is more compact than the 15/2.8. I wish Zeiss would give us an Otus-grade 11mm f/3.5.
