Contax Distagon T* 21mm f/2.8


Superb optical performance ,Ive lusted after this lens from its first reviews on photo mags eons ago .I have this lens 3 years and had to replace the rear element as previous owner got a bit heavy handed on cleaning it. Zeiss supplied me with lens...

Tank like construction lovely dampened focus . Und zat zeiss pop zooo kool, excuse the pun. Best wide angle option adapted to ff canon although cannon telephoto are the masters in that realm ,not so in w.a

A little prone to flare ,mustache distortion , a little cool ,but the latter two are corectable in pp

A stunning lens. The 2% pincussion (not barrel) distortion (or lack thereof) is amazing for the 90 degree angle of view. It is worth every penny!The shape of the lens is a bit odd, but the internal focussing is very nice. An 82 slim B&W UV protection...

No distortion! Stunning optical performance, though getting a bit softer towards the corners when chromes are scanned in at 4000 dpi, but still FAR better than any other wide angles I've used

No distortion. When you need distortion for accentuated curved horizon, this lens will not provide it, even when you put the horizon towards the margin of the frame

This lens is an optical wonder in all aspects

Outstanding in resolution and contrast even at full aperture. I'ver never owned such a perfect wide angle lens

The best wide-angle for 35mm SLR that you can afford...

Sharp from edge-to-edge. Outstanding at wide-open. Close focusing. It's one of the correct color renderness. What more... it's Zeiss optics

82mm and Metal Hood W-1 are problem. K-94 is very hard to find in market. No hood if I use filter. What should i do
