    Zeiss Distagon T* 3.5/18 ZF

    Just in time for the D700 it seems. I see my wallet becoming lighter, much lighter

    Thanks for the heads up, Jorgen
    This is very interesting, what so many have been waiting for.
    But so far no data sheet, which is a bit strange ?
    I'm eager to see if the MTF chart is close to the illustrious Zeiss Distagon T* 2.8/21mm.
    Now what can I sell ...

    I'm eager to see a ZF version of the illustrious Zeiss Distagon T* 21/2.8!

    FYI:

    I just posted on the Commercial Vendor forum that we are now taking preorders on the new 18mm ZF. Price is $1,450 with shipping to start in September.

    Do you think that Zeiss will make a 21mm in between the 18mm and the 25mm ?

    Honestly, I'm not sure. I think the 18mm is nice focal length - works great as an ultrawide for FX and still makes a nice 28mm equiv. on DX. 21mm, while great on FX, falls a bit short (or long as the case may be) on DX.

    What I'd like to see is something longer than the 100 Makro, perhaps a 135 or even a 180 would be sweet. The ZF range has truly blossomed into a full line-up in a very short amount of time since Photokina 2006. Just a few more lenses should give a completer range from ultrawide to tele.

    And of course, it is a Photokina year... who knows what may be announced at the show for Zeiss...
