For limited time only, save 16% on the Zeiss 85mm F/1.4 dropping from $1,283.00 to $1,083.00 when you buy this item at Adorama.com and Shipping is free! The Zeiss 85mm F/1.4 also comes in Zeiss Ikon 85mm f1.4 Planar T* ZE Lens for Canon EOS #1677838 -BUNDLE-.
The Zeiss 1677838 short telephoto is a classic portrait focal length which is further enhanced by the long barrel rotation for precise control of the focus point in the image. The Planar T* 1.4/85 is optimized for medium to longer distances and provides distortion-free performance, which only improves as the lens is stopped down.
The fast f/1.4 aperture is very useful for creatively controlling the depth of field and the nearly circular diaphragm creates a pleasing 'bokeh' in the out-of-focus areas. Combined with a DSLR with a 1.5 crop factor, the lens becomes a focal length of 128 mm.
