Once Guy Geva started using ZEISS lenses, it was like a dream come true. He could achieve maximum sharpness for the whole width of the frame with a completely open aperture and there were no chromatic aberrations. This enabled him to shoot night photography and to control the depth of the field of each picture taken. He did not have to keep updating his lenses to achieve better performance with the high-resolution cameras. A one-time investment in ZEISS lenses decreased his overall expenses.
Wide angle lenses are usually conceived of for their essential function of “fitting more in”, since some spaces and places afford no viable alternative. Yet one of the hardest things to do with a wide angle lens is to fit in only what is needed, that is, to take out as much as possible, but not too much. In this in-depth article Lloyd Chambers from diglloyd.com explains how to harness the potential of wide angle lenses.
The rapid development of image sensors for SLR cameras puts ever greater demands on the image performance of lenses. The resolution and contrast rendition of the optics have to keep pace with the higher megapixel values of the sensors to be able to take full advantage of their potential.
Unusual perspectives and dramatic staging: the ZEISS Distagon T* 2,8/15 in street and travel photography
Architectural photography is the traditional domain of a wide-angle lens, and a powerful one at that, given the distortion-free results you can achieve with the Distagon T* 2,8/15. But the new ZEISS super-wide angle is not only suitable for these types of images.
