The Zeiss ZF.2 18mm f/3.5 Distagon for Nikon

The 18mm f/3.5 provides low distortion with that wonderful Zeiss contrast and sharpness. The ZF.2 lenses feature an electronic interface (CPU) that enables support of all important camera operating modes such as shutter priority, aperture priority and programmed auto exposure or manual exposure settings on non-AI compatible camera housings. Photographers no longer have to set the parameters in the camera menu as the lens now transmits standard data such as focal length, speed and the aperture setting to the camera. This data can then be viewed in the EXIF data of each picture.

Our Take

I’ve enjoyed this lens a lot. It provides good corner to corner resolution and sharpness and that unique Zeiss microcontrast. I find it actually sharper close up compared to at infinity, similar to the Zeiss 25mm. But I’m in the minority there, the professional reviewers haven’t mentioned that. It vignettes pretty significantly on an FX camera even at f/5.6 so I’d plan on shooting in raw to remove that in postprocessing.

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

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.
