Bringing things closer and faster. The Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 135mm f/2.8 ZF.2 Nikon Mount Lens is a mid range telephoto lens that weighs 920g (2.03 lbs) and has a 128mm (5.03') dimension with the caps. The 11 lens elements in 8 groups arrangement found in this lens is fashioned from the Apo Sonnar design created by Dr. Ludwig Bertele in 1930 which specializes in high-speed photography. This lens lets you capture anything on or with the horizon with its 135 mm focal length and an image ratio of 1:4. This lens lets you further your limitations, by having a f/2.0 – f/22 aperture rangenine diaphragm blades, apochromat lens, and a "Floating elements" design. These four characterisics lets you capture images faster, more crisp,more vivid, and relatively free from chromatic abberations even under unfavorable light conditions. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.


Product Features in Detail

Design
A lens design with relatively few glass-to-air surfaces, invented by Dr. Ludwig Bertele at ZEISS in 1930 to provide the fastest lenses of that day for 35 mm photography offering speeds up to f/1.5 and well controlled veiling glare. This is where the name comes from, containig the German word for sun, ’Sonne’, the symbol of utmost brightness.

Apochromat
Because this lens is an apochromat, chromatic aberrations (axial chromatic aberations) are corrected with elements of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion. The chromatic aberrations are therefore significantly below the defined limits. Bright-dark transitions in the image, and especially highlights, are reproduced almost completely free of color artifacts.

High-Speed Lens
Impressive photographs captured in low light always begin with a fast lens for a system or SLR camera. Because, a fast, high-performance lens captures as much light as possible. And a lens with a large maximum aperture leads to the best results when shooting in unfavourable light.

Close focusing distance
The lens design ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focusing range as well as sharpness to the periphery of the image. The asphere's more complex surface profile can reduce or eliminate spherical aberration and also reduce other optical aberrations compared to a simple lens.

Excellent resolution
Rich, vibrant colors are vital to creating a lasting impression. Stray light in the lens, however, would lead to a brightening of the image, which is particularly visible in shadow areas.

High contrast
Image contrast is lowered; the image appears dull and bleached. We combine various, elaborate techniques to reduce unwanted stray light.

Ideal aperture
Photographers want to guide the observer through the image. Minimal depth of focus is often used as a design element. This keeps the background intentionally blurred to keep the attention of the observer on the main subject. These different representations of the blurred areas, as well as the quality of the transition, are referred to as the Bokeh of a lens. The finely tuned features of the optical design on ZEISS SLR lenses ensure a particularly harmonious effect of the blurred areas of the image. 

Nine blades
The nine diaphragm blades and the resulting, virtually circular aperture on ZEISS SLR lenses are crucial to favorable rendition of highlights in the fore and background.
