The Zeiss ZF.2 15mm f/2.8 Distagon for Nikon

The Zeiss ZF.2 15mm f/2.8 Distagon T* is an ultra wide angle lens for use with Nikon F-mount cameras. It provides a 110 degree angle of view that has a very minimal amount of distortion. The wide angle and large depth of field are perfectly suited for architectural and landscape photography. The optical formula features two aspherical lenses, partial dispersion glass, and a floating element design that gives high quality images throughout the focus range.

The lens has a close focus distance of 9.84" that makes it great for accentuating perspective, while its fast f/2.8 aperture makes shooting in poor lighting conditions possible. Like all other ZF.2 lenses, the 15mm f/2.8 works in all exposure modes and transmits focus confirmation and EXIF data on compatible cameras. The built-in metal hood not only minimizes lens flares, but also helps to protect the bulbous front element. The lens does have a front threaded filter ring that accepts a 95mm filter.

Roger's Take

I kind of feel sorry for Zeiss. For about 10 years everyone has begged them to make a world-class ultra-wide angle lens. So they went and made the 15mm f/2.8, which is superb. So what does everyone do? They complain about the hood and the fact that you can’t easily mount filters on it. Tried mounting a filter on a 14-24 f/2.8 lately? That’s not easy either.

In the corners it’s sharper than the 14-24mm f/2.8 and just as sharp (or sharper) in the center. Barrel distortion for such a wide lens isn’t bad at 2%, and it’s fairly flare resistant. It doesn’t zoom nearly as well, obviously, and it’s more expensive. But right now, if you want the best ultra-wide image you can get, this is the choice.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
