Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE

Versatile, bright, and wide, the Canon EF-mount Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE utilizes a Distagon optical concept, with a pair of aspherical elements and four anomalous partial dispersion elements, to control distortion, spherical and chromatic aberrations, and color fringing in order to produce sharp, clear, and color-neutral imagery with a broad perspective.

Versatile, bright, and wide, the Canon EF-mount Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE from Zeiss utilizes a Distagon optical concept, with a pair of aspherical elements and four anomalous partial dispersion elements, to control distortion, spherical and chromatic aberrations, and color fringing in order to produce sharp, clear, and color-neutral imagery with a broad perspective. A floating elements system is also employed for consistent performance throughout the aperture range, and an enhanced Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for working in difficult lighting conditions.

Its manual focus design is complemented by a rubberized focus ring for fine-tuned, precise control over your focus position. Additionally, Milvus-series lenses also feature an equally aesthetic and durable frosted, anodized metal lens-barrel surface along with a weather-sealed construction to protect against dust and moisture.

  • This 18mm f/2.8 lens is designed for full-frame format Canon EF-mount DSLRs, and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 28.8mm equivalent focal length

  • Distagon optical design incorporates two aspherical elements and four anomalous partial dispersion elements to greatly control distortions and both spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity.

  • Floating elements system maintains consistent performance when working with both close-up and distant subjects.

  • Enhanced Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and flare for high contrast, color-neutral imagery.

  • Wide-angle perspective pairs with a minimum focusing distance of 25 cm for exaggerating foreground subjects and creating a broad sense of space.

  • Manual focus design is benefitted by laser-engraved focusing and depth of field scales, along with an IR position dot and hard stops at both infinity and minimum focusing positions.

  • Weather-resistant construction includes internal seals to guard against dust and moisture as well as a blue sealing ring at the lens mount to protect the lens-camera interface.

  • All-metal lens barrel has a frosted, anodized surface along with a rubberized focusing ring for both durability and improved tactile control.
