Carl Zeiss Announces Semi-Pro Lens Line for Nikon
Carl Zeiss has announced a line of lenses for "the semi-professional" market. Labelled ZF.2, this family of manual-focus lenses will mount and meter with Nikon F-Mount 35mm camera bodies.
While no samples were available at press time, the optics line-up covers popular focal ranges from 18mm to 100mm. The CPU now reports EXIF information to the mounted body such as exposure based on selected aperture; which eases the photographer's workload in managing settings. Overall, the price and maximum aperture reflects the targeted enthusiast market. Zeiss quotes an MSRP of approximately USD800 to USD2100 depending upon the model making the threshold somewhat more accessible to the prosumer.
