Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 Examples on Nikon Z7: Mt Conness Basin East

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist and Nikon mirrorless wishlist and Canon mirrorless wishlist.

These examples with the Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 were taken in the Mt Conness drainage (east) of the Eastern Sierra late in the season. Indeed, the meadow below was blanketed by snow from a very cold storm just two days later—temperatures about 25°F colder!

Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 Examples: Mt Conness Basin East (Nikon Z7)

Includes a variety of full resolution images. The sensor quality of the Nikon Z7 and the Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 are 'golden'—an ideal example of both optical and physical excellence in spite of the Nikon FTZ lens adapter being interposed.

I am concluding that Zeiss Milvus and Zeiss Otus lenses have a great new lease on life given the paucity of lenses available for the Nikon Z7, and the disappointing performance at the wide end of the Nikon NIKKOR S 24-70mm f/4 S, which means the zoom ain’t for me. While I do not like the awkwardness of the largest of these lenses, they work great, and the Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 is a terrific choice on the Nikon Z7.

The Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 was used on the Nikon Z7 via the Nikon FTZ lens adapter. The EVF on the Nikon Z7 is a joy to use for manual focus lenses. The Milvus 18/2.8 balances nicely on the Nikon Z7. It is relatively small and lightweight, unlike its faster f/1.4 siblings, so it never feels like a burden.
