Zeiss ZF.2 25mm f/2 Distagon T*

Examples (Yosemite, White Mountains)

All examples on this page with the 21MP Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

Many shots on this page were handheld, manually focused by eye and some were “pushed” with some exposure compensation.

I chose this selection of images to demonstrate the characteristics of the 25/2 Distagon with a variety of subjects and distances and lighting and apertures, but with an emphasis on shooting at f/2.

Images presented in AdobeRGB colorspace. Be sure to view these images with a colorspace-aware browser like current versions of Apple Safari or Firefox, not Internet Explorer or Opera, etc.
