  • Carl Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon T* 2.8/15

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Colour rendition, contrast and wonderfully sharp. Astonishing build quality.

    Quite simply a superb wide angle lens. Image quality is to die for. Colours and contrast are amazing. Build quality is in a league of its own.

    Manual focus is entirely appropriate for the characteristics of this lens.For Landscapes, interiors and street photography so far it is in its element.

    Price in the UK is even higher than elsewhere but "mortgaging my Grandmother", metaphorically speaking I hasten to add, has been worth it!

    In a phrase, wide angle heaven.
