We’ve updated our recent lens guide to the Zeiss Milvus lineup of glass. Are they pricey? Sure, but when you consider what you’re getting with the quality of an optic that Zeiss offers, you’re realizing you’re getting a great investment. Zeiss lenses combine both great optics with some of the best build quality of any lens on the market, in addition to an approach that makes you concentrate harder and create better images.
At the moment, there are 12 Zeiss Milvus lenses and we’ve just added to this guide our 35mm f1.4 Milvus review. This is a semi-wide angle lens that Zeiss is saying is great for portraiture. That hasn’t really been done before in the past, and so it’s quite a claim for any lens company out there. But as we saw in our review, the Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Milvus lens is fantastic for portraiture. We went a step further this time around and decided to try it out on film too. The colors, sharpness, and overall look to the images is something that’s bound to “wow” many photographers. Part of this is due to the 3D look it renders with the micro-contrast built in. It’s tough to get that from any other manufacturer’s offerings.
