Not con­tent with Nikon glass? Zeiss’s Mil­vus range has been ex­panded at each end of the line-up’s fo­cal-length range to in­clude new 15mm and 18mm f/2.8 ul­tra­w­ide primes, plus an 135mm f/2 tele­photo. All are man­ual fo­cus, but each in­cor­po­rates a fo­cus­ing ring with gen­er­ous ro­ta­tional travel to help you make pre­cise fo­cus ad­just­ments. The lenses are touted as up­hold­ing Zeiss’s rep­u­ta­tion for sharp­ness, while pro­duc­ing cine­matic bokeh smooth enough to sat­isfy video en­thu­si­asts. Ro­bust build that in­cludes a metal hood and weather seals helps to jus­tify the pre­mium price tag. First im­pres­sions_

If you’ve got deep pock­ets and can do with­out AF, th­ese are well worth a look.
