Zeiss 25mm f/2 Distagon T*

zeiss25f2
Review Date: Feb 24, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,850.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 1) Hard stop at infinity, 2) Small and Light, 3) Very good IQ at f2
Cons:
1) No Auto Focus, 2) Poor cheap lens cap that never gives me confidence that it is secure.

This is my go to lens for northern lights photography. All my canon's are frustrating in the dark. You have to find a bright object to live view focus. But the zeiss 25 f2 is sharp, hard stop at infinity and that makes it really easy to use in the dark.

I still use my 24 TS f3.5 in the light to remove the bowing of the trees but for quality, the 25 f2 is not to be beat.

High quality.

The only thing I don't like about this lens is the cheap lens cap.

For night shooting, there are none better.
