ZEISS Camera Lenses Press Event
We are heading to Oberkochen, to the Zeiss Camera Lenses Press Event, where we were told to expect several new lens announcements.
Among others, we expect to see at least one new Otus and one Loxia, so stay tuned and keep checking this rolling report.
We also hope to get the chance to talk to Zeiss experts, so if you have any questions, post them in the comments bellow and we will try to find answers for you.
You probably already know, but here they are – full set of new Zeiss lenses – line cold Milvus
This come as surprise to me, especially to see the full range presented at once.
In short, Milvus is a new DSLR dedicated line (Canon and Nikon mount), where 6 lenses are presented with Milvus 50/1.4 and 85/1.4 being completely new designs, while other 4 are rather re-designs from existing “Zeiss Classic DSLR line”.
We were able to take some shots with a full line and I will try to give you more info and post images as soon as I get to my home computer. First impression is overall very positive though…
We will have more chances to try lenses tomorrow, so again – if you have any questions, this is best time to post it here!!!
Milvus was certainly the most important announce that Zeiss made today, but there was more…
Unfortunately, we were asked to keep silent for about 1 month, so you might refer to the rumor sites. I am sure, they will tell you all you need to know 🙂
Here is official Zeiss PR with a link to the product site:
New ZEISS SLR Lens Family for ZE and ZF.2 Mounts
Six new focal lengths: manual focus lenses optimized for high-resolution cameras
OBERKOCHEN, GERMANY – 10 September 2015
The new ZEISS Milvus SLR lens family contains six focal lengths with ZE or ZF.2 mounts for DSLR cameras from Canon and Nikoni. The ZEISS Milvus lens family with precise manual focusoffers high and consistent image performance across all focal lengths. The new lenses are the ZEISS answer to the current trend toward sensors with increasingly high resolution which, in turn, require higher and higher image quality. They are therefore ideal for current DSLR cameras and also for mirrorless system cameras of the Sony α7 series via an adapter solution and offer the customer excellent value for the money for professional applications. An equally important benefit: their high contrast rendition and low level of stray light ensure that the lenses meet the latest video standards such as HDR (High Dynamic Range) and resolutions of 6K and more. For the user, they open up the field of professional video and cine applications. The ZEISS Milvus lenses will be delivered to dealers in October 2015.

Here are two promised low res images from Milvus 85/1.4 and 50/1.4, but consider that I am sending them from my iPad without any pp.
Milvus 85/1.4 (wide open)
There is much more to come, but I’ll need a day or two to organize all notes and images.
