ZEISS Milvus 1.4/85 ZF.2 Lens - Nikon Mount

Zeiss SKU: 2096-560 | Helix SKU: ZS2096560

The subject stands out with astounding clarity against a background that vanishes masterfully in the soft bokeh of the image composition. The highly precise, manual focus of the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/85 lets the observer experience every single detail.

The redesigned ZEISS Milvus 1.4/85 lens is particularly suitable for portrait photography. This lens is an absolute must for compositions where the main subject is to be sharply defined and emphasized against a beautiful bokeh background. The purely spherical optical design and use of special types of glass ensure optimal micro-contrast and extremely low chromatic aberration. The result: outstanding photographs every time – with the champion of bokeh.

The Planar lens design is the most successful – and most frequently copied – camera lens design of all time. Modifications to the tried-and-tested six-lens basic type ensure that it achieves the high imaging quality required by modern sensors. Lenses with a Planar optical design enable consistent performance across a large range of image scales – the key requirement for universal macro-lenses.
