The ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 is the latest focal length to be added to ZEISS's largest range of lenses for full-frame single-lens reflex cameras. The lens, which was developed for the DSLR systems from Canon1 is a trademark or registered trademark of Canon Inc. and/or other members of the Canon Group. and Nikon2 is a registered trademark of Nikon Corporation., is suitable primarily for landscape and architecture photography, and for journalistic shots and videos. ''The completely new optical design ensures superior performance across the entire image field,'' says Christophe Casenave, Product Manager at ZEISS. ''This results in high-contrast photos and a harmonious bokeh.''

High-speed wide-angle lens
Thanks to a maximum aperture of 1.4, this lens can even capture exceptional images in poor light. ''Even at full aperture, there are hardly any color fringes,'' says Casenave. ''The finest details can be reproduced in high definition and contrast all the way into the corners.'' The metal housing is what makes the lens robust, and its dirt and dust protection even makes the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 ready for action in adverse weather. The large 172-degree focus rotation angle enables precise manual focusing for adding creative touches to photos and videos.

The largest ZEISS lens family yet
Featuring eleven focal lengths ranging from 15 to 135 millimeters, including two macros, the ZEISS Milvus family covers a host of applications, such as portrait, landscape, architecture and street photography. ''We can offer every photographer just the right lens,'' says Casenave.

Perfect for videographers too
The four ZEISS Milvus focal lengths 25, 35, 50 and 85 millimeters with an aperture of 1.4 are just perfect for filming. Thanks to their high speed, they are suitable primarily for interviews and documentaries where the videographer can utilize natural light. Thanks to the de-click function in the version for the Nikon-Mount the aperture can be adjusted continuously. ZEISS Lens Gears in a range of sizes permit the use of follow-focus systems.

The ZEISS Milvus 1.4/25 retails for 2,399 euros incl. 19 percent sales tax (RRP) or 2.399US$ and will be available starting 2 November 2017 at dealers and from the ZEISS online shop.
