Thornwood, NY—The Zeiss Milvus 1.4/25 is the latest focal length to be added to Zeiss’s largest range of lenses for full-frame, single-lens reflex cameras. The lens was developed for Canon’s DSLR system as well as Nikon’s.
The new Milvus is suitable primarily for landscape and architecture photography, and also for photojournalism and recording video.
“The completely new optical design ensures superior performance across the entire image field,” said Christophe Casenave, poroduct manager at Zeiss. “This results in high-contrast photos and a harmonious bokeh.”
Milvus 1.4/25 Features
Thanks to a maximum aperture of f/1.4, this lens can even capture images in poor light. “Even at full aperture, there are hardly any color fringes,” added Casenave. “The finest details can be reproduced in high definition and contrast all the way into the corners.”
The lens features a robust metal housing and is dirt and dust protected. As a result, the Zeiss Milvus 1.4/25 will operate in adverse weather. In addition, its large 172º focus rotation angle enables manual focusing for adding creative touches to photos and videos.
The Zeiss Milvus Lens Line
Featuring eleven focal lengths ranging from 15mm to 135mm, including two macros, the Zeiss Milvus family covers a host of applications. These include portrait, landscape, architecture as well as street photography. “We can offer every photographer just the right lens,” said Casenave.
Moreover, four Zeiss Milvus focal lengths—25mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm—with an aperture of f/1.4 are suitable for filming. Due to their high speed, they are particularly suited for interviews and documentaries where the videographer can utilize natural light. And, as a result of the de-click function in the Nikon-mount version, the aperture can be adjusted continuously.
The Zeiss Milvus 1.4/25 retails for $2,399 starting this month. zeiss.com
