ZEISS LOXIA 2/35
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.
