Re­porters, doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phers, street pho­tog­ra­phers — the Zeiss Loxia 2/35 may be the lens you’ve been search­ing for. Its 35mm fo­cal length pro­vides an an­gle of view which prac­ti­cally cap­tures a huge amount of your sur­round­ings, and the ac­tion around you, in a sin­gle frame. It makes use of nine lens el­e­ments in six groups, and the sym­met­ri­cal lens de­sign sees dis­tor­tion, colour cor­rec­tion, and im­age-field flat­ness very well con­trolled. This lens sys­tem is very small in size and weight, so is not in­tru­sive when you shoot out on the streets, and it gives you a great level of dis­cre­tion when it comes to pho­tograph­ing your cho­sen sub­jects. With the added bonus of pre­cise man­ual fo­cus, you’re able to cap­ture an im­age in as cre­ative a way as you see fit, thanks to the abil­ity to see your per­fect-pre­ci­sion ad­just­ments on the viewfinder as soon as you make them. And the DeClick fea­ture also al­lows you to elim­i­nate un­wanted bright­ness dif­fer­ences when pan­ning a video — if you choose to ven­ture into the mov­ing im­age realm.
