Capture everything from majestic landscapes to up-close group shots with the super wide-angle ZEISS Milvus 15mm f/2.8 lens. Designed for full frame cameras, the manual focus prime lens features a retrofocus Distagon design for virtually distortion-free images. A floating lens design ensures consistent and high image quality from close-up to infinity, while five anomalous partial dispersion elements and a pair of aspherical elements control chromatic aberration and prevent colour fringing. The Zeiss T* coating on the glass eliminates internal reflections, maintains optimal light transmission and minimises flare and ghosting for truly sharp photos and video with beautiful contrast.

Extreme Wide-Angle Perspectives

The ultra-wide Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 lens offers a 110° angle of view that’s suitable for creating shots with exaggerated perspectives in stunning detail. Designed for full frame cameras, it can also be used with smaller sensor sizes where it will provide the same stunning quality.

Fast Aperture

A bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for creating soft focus backgrounds and working in challenging lighting conditions and environments. It’s ideal for photographers shooting sweeping cityscapes and architecture, night time and landscapes, as well as confined interiors.

Floating Lens Element Design

A floating element design ensures a consistent level of sharpness throughout the entire focussing range to infinity. Whether you’re focused on something far away or composing a shot at the 25cm minimum focusing distance, the resulting images will be sharp and clear.

Minimal Distortion

The lens features the highly-regarded Zeiss Distagon retrofocus design to overcome barrel distortion often associated with wide angle lenses. Rectilinear distortion is significantly reduced allowing you to capture objects closer to their true form without having to worry about warped features.

Cutting Edge Optical Performance

With 15 elements in 12 groups, including five anomalous partial dispersion glass elements and a pair of aspherical elements, the lens delivers exemplary edge-to-edge sharpness and contrast, with reduced chromatic aberration and colour fringing.

Anti-Reflective Coatings

Image quality is further bolstered by Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating on the elements to increase light transmission, greatly improving low light performance. Ghosting and flare are well-controlled resulting in greater image clarity, contrast and colour fidelity.

Manual Focus and Aperture Rings

A smooth, rubberised focus ring offers intuitive control with stops at infinity and the closest focusing point for precise manual control. The aperture ring clicks in place for immediate tactile feedback with f-stops, focusing distance, and depth of field scales engraved into the metal lens barrel.

Detachable Lens Hood

Included with the lens is a petal shaped metal lens hood with a flocked interior to further reduce the chances of reflections caused by stray light hitting the lens at an angle. It also offers light impact protection to ensure the front element and 95mm filter thread stay safe and operational. The hood is detachable which also makes it ideal for use with slot-in filter systems or underwater housings.

All-Metal Weather Resistant Construction

The Zeiss Milvus 15 mm f/2.8 lens’s all-metal construction offers a solid, high-quality feel with a precise fit to your camera. Special seals on the barrel and the signature Zeiss blue gasket on the lens mount protect the internals from dust, moisture, and splashes to deliver reliable functionality even in the most challenging conditions.
