A versatile wide-angle prime designed for M-mount rangefinder cameras, the black Distagon T* 18mm f/4 ZM Lens from ZEISS provides an immense 98° angle of view to suit photographing wide-open expanses or tight, narrow interior locations with dimensional fidelity. Employing a Distagon optical design, distortion is significantly reduced for a realistic portrayal of scenes and both brightness and sharpness are maintained from edge to edge and three anomalous partial dispersion glass elements are also used to help control chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for improved clarity and colour fidelity throughout the aperture range. A T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual lens elements to control flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions for increased contrast and colour neutrality. Additionally, the lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 50 cm away.
- Employing a Distagon optical concept, this lens delivers virtually distortion-free performance that pairs well with the broad angle of view.
- Three anomalous partial dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for improved colour accuracy and clarity.
- Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimise reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and colour fidelity.
- Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 50 cm.
