Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 15mm f/2.8 Super Wide Angle Lens
Carl Zeiss is back with its latest super-wide-angle lens, the Distagon T* 15mm F2.8. Designed for Canon EF and Nikon F mounts, the lens features an optical formula that consists of 15 lens elements in 12 groups. The Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 15mm f/2.8 is able to focus from only 25cm (10-inch close-focus point) and provides a diagonal angle of view of 110°.
What makes this super wide angle lens special is that it incorporates two aspheric lenses and special types of glass material with abnormal partial dispersion to provide an extraordinary correction of chromatic aberration. This lens has an integrated lens hood and a 95mm filter thread. The Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 15mm f/2.8 will be released in May 2012 at a recommended retail price of €2,148 or US$2,948 (excluding VAT).
