The Zeiss Distagon T* 18mm f/3.5 ZE Canon EF Mount Lens is a compact and ultra wide lens ideal for a superb architectural and landscape imagery. Its unique photography is collaborated by an Aperture range of f/3.5 – f/22 that limits the amount of light passing through in M 82 x 0.75 Filter thread. The possibilities of capturing creative compositions in your photographs are made possible by the lens' Focal length of 18 mm. You can get in touch of the clarity of your target with a combination of a wide background. The lens as well is made compatible with EF Mount (ZE). Special glass with anomalous partial dispersion is incorporated to the body with Floating Elements design to ensure perfect quality of the image. The lens offers perfect pictures even in low light areas reducing distortion and chromatic aberration, thanks to its lens construction with 13 elements in 11 groups. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.


Product Features in Detail

Master the dramatic
Spectacular urban expanses, majestic mountains, breathtaking cloud formations and tumbling waterfalls - the super wide-angle Distagon T* 3,5/18 lens has an eye for dramatic vistas. Just like you do.

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.

Design
When wide angle views go to extremes and beg the control via an SLR viewfinder, which means that the back focal distance has to be much larger than the focal length, a retrofous design called Distagon is the right choice.

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. 

Elaborate stray light reduction
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. Image contrast is lowered; the image appears dull and bleached. We combine various, elaborate techniques to reduce unwanted stray light. For example, all lens elements are coated with the famous ZEISS T*® anti-reflective coating. Additionally, a jet black special paint is applied by hand to all lens element edges to ensure that reflections are prevented from the start.

ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating
All lens elements in SLR lenses from ZEISS feature the T*® anti-reflective coating and an optical design that produces brilliant pictures even in unfavorable lighting conditions. We vacuum deposit very thin, transparent coats on the surfaces of the lens elements to make them anti-reflective. Special substances, one by one, are vaporized with very high energy in a high vacuum, which are then deposited on the glass surface as a coating with precisely controlled thicknesses to achieve the desired reduction of reflections. The first coatings were applied by ZEISS back in the 1930s.

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.
