Milvus 50mm f/1.4 ZE for Canon
Prime portrait-length lens
The Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 ZE is a prime lens designed for full-frame Canon EF mount DSLRs, and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide an 80mm equivalent focal length. The fast f/1.4 maximum aperture makes this lens well-suited to working in low-light conditions and offers extended control over depth of field.
It uses the Distagon optical design to produce sharp imagery, even when working at the maximum aperture. Four anomalous partial dispersion elements and one aspherical element work to control chromatic aberrations and distortions, and a floating elements system ensures consistent performance when working with both near and distant subjects. A Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to significantly reduce ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast and colour.
It is a manual focus lens, and features a rubberized focus ring for precise focus control. Use the laser-engraved focusing and depth of field scales, along with an IR position dot and hard stops at both infinity and minimum focusing positions for easy focusing. All Milvus-series lenses feature a durable frosted, anodized metal lens barrel surface along with a weather-sealed construction with internal seals to protect against dust and moisture.
