A prime portrait-length lens characterized by its complex Planar
construction, the Canon EF mount Milvus 85mm f/1.4 ZE Lens fromZeiss features
a fast maximum aperture along with a unique spherical design to produce
especially smooth bokeh for selective focus applications. The Planar design
incorporates seven anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to nearly
eliminate chromatic aberrations and other distortions for clean, well-corrected
imagery. A floating elements system is also used, for consistent performance
throughout the focusing and aperture ranges, in order to achieve even sharpness
and clarity. An enhanced Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied
to significantly reduce ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast and color
fidelity when working in difficult lighting conditions.
Its manual focus design is complemented by a rubberized focus ring for
fine-tuned, precise control over your focus position. Additionally, Milvus-series
lenses also feature an equally aesthetic and durable frosted, anodized metal
lens barrel surface along with a weather-sealed construction to protect against
dust and moisture.
This 85mm f/1.4 lens is designed for full-frame format Canon EF
mount DSLRs, and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a
136mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light
conditions and also offers extensive control over depth of field.
Complex Planar optical design features seven anomalous partial
dispersion glass elements to significantly reduce chromatic aberrations for
increased sharpness and clarity.
Unique spherical design produces an especially smooth quality of
bokeh to benefit portraiture and selective focus applications.
Floating elements system maintains consistent performance when
working with both close-up and distant subjects.
Enhanced Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and
flare for high contrast, color-neutral imagery.
Manual focus design is benefitted by laser-engraved focusing and
depth of field scales, along with an IR position dot and hard stops at both
infinity and minimum focusing positions.
Weather-resistant construction includes internal seals to guard
against dust and moisture as well as a blue sealing ring at the lens mount to
protect the lens-camera interface.
All-metal lens barrel has a frosted, anodized surface along with
a rubberized focusing ring for both durability and improved tactile control.
