Zeiss - ZE 135mm f/2.0 Apo Sonar
The 135mm Apo Sonnar is a lens for still photography with very rare high quality, especially within a telephoto with such a wide maximum aperture (f/2) Like most of Zeiss lenses, this 135mm offers a well contrasted picture thanks to a good treatment against flare, but it’s its sharpness that makes it such a unique lens. Moreover, the 135mm Apo Sonnar seems vitrually free of any chromatic aberration and doesn’t show any distrotion.
With a maximum aperture at f/2 and a small minimum object distance at 2’8”, this lens allows to shoot pictures with a very strong and aesthetic bokeh.
This lens has a particularly robust mechanical design, rainproof and dustproof, while keeping a small footprint. Although not comparable to PL lenses of the same generation, its fluid and engraved focus ring still allows good control over focus.
With a coverage including full frame 24x36 format and a ZE mount (Zeiss-compatible EF mount) it can be used directly on DSLR or a RED camera, and obviously on all other cameras with the smaller sensors with an EF mount adapter .
True to the Zeiss look, it can fit perfectly with other brand lenses, whether telephoto or macro lenses with ZE mount, or even PL mount cinema series like the Ultra Prime.
