    Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF (on Canon EOS) – Lab Test / Review by photozone.de

    The Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 ZF performed pretty good in our Nikon APS-C review but it didn’t impress during our full format tests. The resolution capabilities are simply sub-standard for such an expensive prime lens.

    Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2,8 ZF Lens Review by slrlensreview.com

    The revised Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 is certainly an improvement over the old Conntax version of this lens, particularly around borders. If the old 25mm prime was just average among the sea of 24/25mm primes, the new version certainly climbed to the top quarter. It’s probably not the ultimate wide angle lens you can find – that title belongs to the wider Zeiss cousin, Carl Zeiss Distagon 21mm f/2.8. Still, Distagon T* 25mm f/2.8 is a good lens – resolution is quite good overall (except the wide aperture levels where border image quality suffers somewhat), color and tonality reproduction is excellent as well. The typical artifacts found in wide angles like vignetting, flare and distortion should not, in isolation, repel your desire to own this lens. You might want to wait a little bit though, considering that there are numerous rumors floating around that Zeiss is planning to release a redesigned version soon.
