Zeiss Milvus Planar T* 1.4/85mm Image Gallery

I’m always excited to spend time with a Zeiss lens.  I love the beautiful build, the great optics, and the more deliberate process of manually focusing the lenses.  Not everyone enjoys the manual focus process, but I like the analog, organic process when I have time to be more deliberate in my shooting.  I keep an EG-S precision focus screen in one of my 6D bodies specifically for use with MF lenses, and that inexpensive addition makes for a much easier shooting process.  I’ve even done some event shooting with MF lenses, and so long as you think about prefocusing in some situations, it is certainly possible.  The Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 is a beautifully made lens that shares a lot of the Otus’ line DNA, but adds a trick of its own with fully weather sealed construction, a first for Zeiss lenses (at least in a Canon/Nikon sphere). Here’s a close look at the build and handling of the lens:

Here is a very careful look at the image quality, bokeh, and resolution of the lens:

Here is a video review of the lens that I know you’ll enjoy!
