Apologies for the delay, but it seems that if a tree falls in Georgia, it makes a noise only a DSL modem in Canada can hear (and make the modem break). I'll leave that cryptically ambiguous and just say that everything's back up in running in both countries now, and I'm pleased to be able to present you with this week's review, the Carl Zeiss 28mm f/2 Distagon.
Carl Zeiss released the 28mm f/2 Distagon without fanfare in the latter part of 2007, The lens is available in the Nikon F-mount, the Pentax/Samsung K-mount and the M42 screw mount. The Carl Zeiss 28mm f/2 Distagon 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 about 42mm. The lens takes 58mm filters, and comes with a bowl-style metal lens hood.
