What's a ZF-I? Please elaborate. Have never heard of that. I know there are IR versions of the 25 and 50 ZF lenses.


Yes. As it was said before it's an industrial version. There are two visual changes - more robust sealing and special fixing screws to save focus position. Maybe it has different glass than regular one. But it's impossible to check

The MTF plots of the ZF-I version (https://www.zeiss.com/content/dam/consumer-products/downloads/industrial-lenses/datasheets/en/classic-lenses/datasheet-zeiss-distagon-235-industrial-lens.pdf) are identical to ZF.2 version's.

I looked at my IR version and it appears to have the nacelle of the Industrial version, drilled holes sans fixing screws. Its spectral transmission is of course different on account of the specialized coatings but all of them probably demonstrate the same MTF.

It might have the same MTF in general. But MTF varies copy to copy. I donít know but Iím happy to think that ZF-I lens finish more precise as it has to be used for industrial applications. Let it be my delusion )))

Yes, MTF varies copy to copy. This implies that a ZF.2 sample could be better than a ZF-I sample, being identical both the lens design and the "official" MTF plots Zeiss has published 😁

Love the brilliance and colors! Out of curiosity - I see you using both the Distagon 2.0 and 1.4 for a similar subject (leaves). What makes you pick one over the other?

Leave the man to his dreams. Who knows, maybe the Industrial versions are assembled to tighter tolerances. IIRC, the 50 Summicron Rigid DR was subject to more attention in assembly than the standard Rigid. Unlike all other lens makers who publish only calculated MTF graphs, Zeiss reports measured results for a weighted average of many samples tested.

Yesterday I spent one hour and half relaxing in Centrale Montemartini.
It's always a pleasure to be there with my MF lenses. The ZF 100/2 Makro-Planar still rocks on my Z6. What a beautiful lens!
