Attach any additional accessories for that added effect to your photos with its M 67 x 0.75 filter thread. It features the "Floating Elements" design which reduces aberration even in closer details. It has 9 lens elements in 7 groups, and made of a special glass with anomalous partial dispersion engineered to give you a spectacular photographic experience with every use. Go for a narrow angle of view and higher magnification with its 100 mm focal length. This lens is suitable with F Mount (ZF.2) cameras. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.
Product Features in Detail
Seduce from afar
Backdrop mountain ranges blended with prayer flags create a rich overall composition. The Makro-Planar T* 2/100 fuses expansive landscapes with key foreground details.
The fastest macro lens
The Makro-Planar T* 2/100 is the fastest macro lens currently on the market and bridges the divide of distance to create breathtaking closeness. The lens creates interrelationships where distance used to be, and enables the photographer to design unique compositions. This high-speed macro lens is perfectly suited to long working distances, e.g. portraits. Its precise mechanical components with a long angle of focus rotation allow for accurate control, critical for close-focus macro photography.
The famous symmetric lens design invented by Dr. Paul Rudolph at ZEISS in 1896. The Planar lens is the most successful camera lens design – and, by the way, the most plagiarized – ever created. It provides the lens designer with numerous means to correct aberrations extraordinarily well. And its performance is very constant over a wide range of imaging ratios, enabling such a versatile lens variety as the Makro-Planar lens. It features the following: Planar with 9 lens elements in 7 groups, lens made of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion, and the "Floating Elements" design.
Homogeneous image quality throughout the image field
ZEISS lenses are famous for their extraordinary image quality. Even with challenging subjects, perspective, color and light are optimally rendered – throughout the entire 35 mm image field. For this reason, we place great emphasis on particularly high image quality, e.g. low distortion and outstanding stray light reduction for rich colors.
Excellent image quality
The ZEISS range of T*® lenses offers the highest possible standards in terms of performance, reliability and, of course, image quality. Quite simply, they are superior in every way. You can count on highly advanced flare control for crisp and brilliant images, for example. And virtually zero geometric distortion, ensuring precise accuracy when reproducing shapes – especially useful when photographing products and architecture.
Precise manual focus
Manually focusing a lens means controlling the image result from your fingertips. A good ergonomic design makes all the difference. ZEISS SLR lenses stand out with their large rotation angle which enables precise focusing. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder. The high-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without play, thus also supporting the intuitive interaction with the focal plane. The precise engraving in meter and feet, and the depth of focus scale provide additional support for manually focusing.
High-quality all metal mounts
Noticeable quality and high value stability qualify ZEISS lenses for decades of intense use. The high-quality craftsmanship of the all-metal mounts, the easy-to-grip metal focus and aperture ring and the robust front bayonet and filter threads ensure an amazing photographic experience.
Floating Elements Design
Today’s camera technologies and high-resolution sensors demand continuous improvement of lens performance. Thanks to the use of the latest floating element design principles, optical aberration effects in ZEISS lenses are reduced to a minimum throughout their entire focusing range. This is achieved by variation of the axial distance between individual lens elements or groups. This adjustment of the lens-to-lens distance is coupled to the distance setting to ensure correct compensation at all times. The mechanical construction of these lenses is extremely complex and they must be assembled with utmost precision – both of which are key competencies of ZEISS.
