(From Zeiss lens literature) ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25: A Wide-Angle Lens with an Eye for Detail.

Capturing perfect moments with exquisite detail is what this lens is all about. No matter if you are photographing landscapes or architectural features, the outstanding edge-to-edge quality ensures impressive results.

The completely redesigned ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 will impress you thanks to its remarkably consistent performance in a variety of areas: outstanding edge-to-edge quality enables you to even position your main subject far away from the center of the image. Even at full aperture, outstanding results with high-contrast, crisp images, make this lens the go-to choice even in low-light conditions. Both the finest structures of the subject in the foreground as well as distant image elements can be rendered perfectly due to the advanced floating elements design of the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25.

The ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 is the latest focal length to be added to ZEISS's largest range of lenses for full-frame single-lens reflex cameras. The lens, which was developed for the DSLR systems from Canon1 and Nikon2, is suitable primarily for landscape and architecture photography, and for journalistic shots and videos. "The completely new optical design ensures superior performance across the entire image field," says Christophe Casenave, Product Manager at ZEISS. "This results in high-contrast photos and a harmonious bokeh."

High-speed wide-angle lens

Thanks to a maximum aperture of 1.4, this lens can even capture exceptional images in poor light. "Even at full aperture, there are hardly any color fringes," says Casenave. "The finest details can be reproduced in high definition and contrast all the way into the corners." The metal housing is what makes the lens robust, and its dirt and dust protection even makes the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 ready for action in adverse weather. The large 172-degree focus rotation angle enables precise manual focusing for adding creative touches to photos and videos.

The largest ZEISS lens family yet

Featuring eleven focal lengths ranging from 15 to 135 millimeters, including two macros, the ZEISS Milvus family covers a host of applications, such as portrait, landscape, architecture and street photography. "We can offer every photographer just the right lens," says Casenave.

Perfect for videographers too

The four ZEISS Milvus focal lengths 25, 35, 50 and 85 millimeters with an aperture of 1.4 are just perfect for filming. Thanks to their high speed, they are suitable primarily for interviews and documentaries where the videographer can utilize natural light. Thanks to the de-click function in the version for the Nikon-Mount the aperture can be adjusted continuously. ZEISS Lens Gears in a range of sizes permit the use of follow-focus systems.
