This elegant Tele is the ideal travel companion for portrait and landscape photography and offers stunning images at nearly any distance.
Combined with a 35 mm Biogon wide-angle lens, the ZEISS Tele-Tessar T* 4/85 ZM makes for a classic combination for countless fascinating subjects. The image quality of the Tele-Tessar T* 4/85 ZM is equal to the high aperture models in the lens program. It is almost distortion free and adjusted to the field of curvature as well as to all other defects in color. With the shortest camera-to-subject distance of only 0.9 meters it delivers brilliant pictures at any distance. The all-metal mount and the robust construction turn it into a universal tele lens, even under extremely rough conditions.
Based on special types of high-index optical glass from the Schott Glaswerke and Dr. Paul Rudolph's optical design, the Tessar lens achieved world renown for its definition: the eagle eye of your camera. The ZEISS Tessar lens originally featured a four-lens design and is reflected in the product name: Tessar is derived from the Greek word tessares, meaning four.
