Dr. Hubert Nasse Explains The New Zeiss 55mm f1.4 Lens Design.


Here is a great description by Dr. Hubert Nasse about the new Carl Zeiss Lenses 55mm f1.4 lens. This looks like one of the best Fast Fifty lenses on the market. I can’t wait to get me dirty little hands on one! Here is a rip from the post by DPreview.

A must-see attraction is a high-performance, full-format SLR camera lens with manual focus. With a focal length of 55 mm and aperture of f/1.4, this lens is the first model of a new product family designed for demanding users. Thanks to a newly developed optical design, this lens is superior to conventional full-frame lenses, and it achieves with powerful full-frame, full-format cameras an image performance that until now has only been seen with medium-format systems. The first prototype of this new range will celebrate its world debut at photokina. The family of lenses is expected to be on the market in the second half of 2013 for EF bayonet (ZE) and F bayonet (ZF.2).
