Short Tele/Close Focus. The Zeiss Milvus ZE 100mm f/2M for Canon serves as a dual-purpose lens. As a macro, it offers a maximum 1:2 magnification ratio and 1.44-ft. minimum focusing distance. Printed magnification scales on the side of the barrel enable exacting adjustment. At 100mm, it serves as a great portrait lens, with the f/2 aperture allowing for good subject/background separation.
Advanced Optics. The Milvus 100mm ZE Planar follows with Zeiss’s pedigree for cutting-edge optics. It uses two APO elements within a floating-elements system to ensure consistent image quality when working with both close and distant subjects. The enhanced T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and flare for a color-neutral image that still flaunts that famous high micro-contrast “Zeiss look.”
High-Quality Build. The ZE 135mm Milvus features a weather-resistant construction with internal seals to guard against dust and moisture, while a blue sealing ring at the lens mount protects the lens-camera interface. The all-metal lens barrel has a frosted, anodized surface for increased durability.
Modern Manual Focus. This fully manual-focus lens features a 352° focus throw and rubberized focus ring for improved tactile control, while still providing electrical communication with the camera to control aperture and communicate EXIF data.
