Carl Zeiss will be presenting this lens at the upcoming Photokina 2012. The new 135mm f/2 lens will be very much sought by portrait and landscape photographers. Even cinematographers will be interested in getting this lens.
Carl Zeiss lenses are well known for their optical and build quality. They are normally more expensive compared to their Nikon and Canon counterparts but they compensate by offering high quality results. As usual, this will have a metal construction and will be manual focus only. Yes, these type of lenses are almost all the time MF only. If you’re not the type that can go without the help of you camera’s AF, then I doubt this is the lens for you. If this tickles your fancy, the lens will retails for about $2,000 and will begin shipping December 2012. Don’t forget to hit the comments below if you plan this lens.
