For those photographers out there who like to get very close to their creepy crawly subjects; this one's for you. For those photographers who lament the death of the aperture ring; this one's for you. For those photographers who like lenses that can be used in hand-to-hand combat; this one's for you. Ladies and gentleman, the Carl Zeiss 100mm f/2 macro.
Carl Zeiss produces two macro lenses in its ZF series: the 50mm and the 100mm. The Carl Zeiss 100mm f/2 macro model is available in the Nikon F-mount, the Pentax/Samsung K-mount and the M42 screw mount. The 100mm f/2 is a full-frame lens, built to "old-school" specifications that guarantee compatibility with older camera bodies. On a sub-frame digital sensor body, the lens will have an effective field of view of 150mm. The lens takes 67mm filters, and comes with a bowl-style metal lens hood.
