Zeiss Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 Lens for Nikon

Please note that this is a manual focus lens.The Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 manual focus lens is a classic portrait focal length which is further enhanced by the long barrel rotation for precise control of the focus point in the image. This control in focusing makes this lens ideal for videography using HDSLRs.The lens is optimized for medium to long distances and provides distortion-free performance, which improves as the lens is stopped down. Creatively controlling the depth of field is easily done with the f/1.4 aperture. The nearly circular diaphragm creates a pleasing 'bokeh' in the out-of-focus areas.When mounted on a DSLR with a 1.5 crop ratio, the lens has an effective focal length of 128mm.Precise Focusinglarge rotary angle for pinpoint focusingwide focusing rotation perfect for videographyhigh quality, smooth focusing mechanism without playimmediate display of changes in the viewfinderprecise engraving in meters and feetOptimum ResultsT* anti-reflex coating by Carl Zeissstray light reduction for rich colorsminimized reflection and color fringesoptimum distortion correctionstandardized color characteristics over all focal lengthsIdeal Aperture9 blades create an almost circular apertureadjustable in 1/ 2 f-stop intervalsaperture ring with easy-to-detect lock-in positions and precise photometric gradingMechanical durabilityall-metal mountspractical focusing and aperture setting ring in metalsturdy front bayonet and filter threadLens Mount: Nikon F Mount
