ZEISS Milvus 2/135 – Review by Jorge Torralba
by Jorge Torralba
For the past few years I have mainly been shooting with Sony cameras. The mirror less revolution is moving forward and taking no prisoners. However, just recently I have been feeling nostalgic and thinking quite a bit about my Nikon cameras which I use to praise and love so much. That mass of metal which feels like no other camera when firmly grasped tightly is really quite comforting. Lets face it, there is a big difference between holding a large DSLR and a small mirror less camera and no matter how advanced and feature packed a new mirror less camera is, it still does not give me that level of comfort and confidence in reliability I get when holding a Nikon D5 or other DSLR. I recently purchased a Nikon D5 and have been longing for a nice short tele to play with. I have always been fond of the 135 focal length and when mated to a nice DSLR, it results in one of my most enjoyable shooting experiences. I feel the 135 gives you that extra reach and separation that an 85 or 100 just misses. So when I called ZEISS to see if I could get the new Milvus 2/135 for testing I was pleasantly surprised to hear they had one available and they would ship it to me.
