Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott tested the new Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 135mm f/2 lens. And he is pretty fond of it.
It is fairly large and definitely heavy, but this isn’t unusual in the current trend of full frame lens design. Despite these very real challenges the lens is a masterful option for those looking for the ultimate 135mm lens. It’s a joy to shoot with, and produces images that look amazing right out of the camera. If you pride yourself on doing minimal post processing, you will love the Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 2/135mm; images look great without being touched. If you are looking for a magical telephoto for shooting video, you will love this lens. It is special, and I’m so glad that it has found its way into the Milvus lineup.
Dustin Abbott praises the “superb optical performance that is rarely matched and never outdone“. A sample pictures gallery is here. You can go for the written review, or watch the 16 minutes full review video below.
