Milvus 50mm f/2 ZE for Canon
Prime portrait-length lens
The Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/2 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 a 80mm equivalent focal length. Designed for macro applications, this lens' 1:2 maximum magnification ratio is benefitted by a 24 cm minimum focusing distance along with printed magnification scales on the barrel.
The Planar design controls chromatic aberrations and distortions, and a floating elements system provides consistent performance throughout the aperture range and when working with both close-up 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.
