ZEISS Milvus 1.4/35
The ZEISS Milvus 1.4/35 is particularly suitable for portrait photography thanks to its speed. The high maximum aperture enables the subject to stand out clearly against the background, and the photographer can achieve creative combinations of focus and blur.
The manual focus enables very exact focusing, and the creamy bokeh provides an excellent image look. And even at full aperture the image quality leaves nothing to be desired.
The ZEISS Milvus 1.4/35 is also perfectly at home in landscape photography: "The 35- millimeter focal length is a genuine all-rounder." Like all lenses in the ZEISS Milvus family, it is protected against dust and splashes and, according to Casenave, even bad weather is no problem. The metal barrel gives the lens its robust and durable character.
Practically no chromatic aberrations thanks to a new optical design
With aspherical lens elements, special glass materials and advanced correction, ZEISS has given the lens a completely new optical design. This means the photos are practically free from chromatic aberrations. Thanks to their excellent edge-to-edge imagery the ZEISS Milvus lenses are designed for high-performance digital cameras.
The ten lenses in the ZEISS Milvus family, ranging between 15 and 100 millimeters, are also suitable for film productions: the manual focus with a large rotation angle can be operated with the aid of a ZEISS Lens Gear with a follow-focus system. The de-click function allows the aperture to be set continuously in the version for Nikon cameras. A further benefit for filming: ZEISS has matched the color characteristics of the ten lenses. Filmmakers can therefore switch between the focal lengths and still have a uniform color look.
