Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 28mm f/2 with EF mount

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 28mm f/2

The Distagon T* 2/28 ZE is the first moderate wide-angle lens with EF bayonet from popular German manufacturer Carl Zeiss. One of the fastest lenses of its kind ever produced and perfect for capturing delicate, low-light moments without the use of the tripod, the compact Distagon T* 2/28 ZE is a valuable addition to any on-the-go photographers arsenal. An initial aperture opening of 1:2 makes for unparalleled sensitivity to light and a unique T* anti-reflective lens coating ensures protection against bothersome reflections and stray light. Finally, the artist once bound by technology can afford to be impulsive, and with brilliant results! The Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28 ZE will be available sometime this autumn. It retails for EUR 965.55 and is currently available for pre-order.

The Expert for Half-light

Carl Zeiss presents the Distagon T* 2/28 with EF bayonet

OBERKOCHEN/Germany, 12.10.2009.

The breaking dawn is a special time for photographers. When the early-morning sun reluctantly chases away the still-glistening dew on the trees, this delicate transition between night and day creates moments of calm and anticipation. But without a tripod at hand, these shots will only succeed with a lens that can handle intense light.

Carl Zeiss today introduces the wide-angle lens Distagon T* 2/28 ZE with EF bayonet, suitable for all analog and digital EOS camera models. With an initial aperture opening of 1:2, it is among the most light-intense of its kind in its focal length. From landscape photography at dawn to interior shots with weak lighting and close-up portraits, the Distagon T* 2/28 ZE offers photographers plenty of room for creativity when a tripod is not used. Following the recent introduction of its two ultra-wide-angle lenses, the Distagon T* 3,5/18 ZE and the T* 2,8/21, the new Distagon T* 2/28 ZE is Carl Zeiss’ first moderate wide-angle lens with EF bayonet.

Despite its high lightintensity and complex retro-focus construction, the Distagon T* 2/28 ZE has a compact build. These characteristics make the lens a highly versatile and performance-driven tool for all types of photographers. Even with its wide angle, the lens enables photographers to play fully with an image’s depth of focus. With a wide aperture opening, for example, one can effectively separate the motif from its background. With a small aperture opening, photographers can use the sharpness of the lens system for the entire image range. The floating elements design guarantees high imaging performance each time, from close-ups to infinity, enabling the photographer to make razor-sharp close-up images of even the tiniest objects. Thanks to the Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating and meticulously crafted lenses, the new Distagon T* 2/28 ZE deals effortlessly with reflections and stray light. Brilliant pictures work every time, even under tough lighting conditions such as a breaking dawn.

The Distagon T* 2/28 ZE will be available starting autumn for a suggested retail price of EUR 965.55 (excluding VAT)*.
