Zeiss has announced a collection of 6 lenses in its new Milvus line for Canon (ZE) and Nikon (ZF.2) mount cameras.
The new lenses consist of the following:
- Zeiss Milvus 21mm f/2.8
- Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/2
- Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4
- Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4
- Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/2 Macro
- Zeiss Milvus 100mm f/2 Macro
The lenses are manual focus only; however, the communicate electronically with the camera body to provide compatibility with program, aperture priority, shutter priority and manual modes. Additionally, they will communicate lens EXIF data to the camera.
The focus ring is a longer throw for precise focusing and enhanced use with video. Zeiss says the lens quality meets the latest standards for 6K video capture. The ZF.2 lenses offer the ability to declick the aperture for video use.
The new Zeiss Milvus lenses range in price from $1177 to $1843 and will be available in October 2015.
