Zeiss Distagon 35mm F1 4 ZA E Mount (5)

Here are a number of full-size sample photos from the new Zeiss Distagon FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA T* lens - taken with the full-frame 42.4 megapixel Sony Alpha A7R Mark II. The lens is large and in the hand feels very well built, as you would expect for a lens with an RRP of £1559. The lens weigh 630 grams, is moisture and dust resistant, and has a 72mm filter thread. The lens has a circular 9-blade aperture for improved bokeh and background defocus effects.

The lens offers aperture control on the lens, along with click-less aperture control which can be switched on and off with a switch on the side of the lens. With a large front element, care needs to be taken when shooting into the sun, and we found chromatic aberrations more noticeable when shooting at bright apertures such as f/1.4 and f/2.0, although this was reduced when the lens was stopped down. Vignetting is visible when shooting wide open, at f/1.4 but this is reduced as you stop the lens down. Detail is impressive with the lens extremely sharp when stopped down, and detail is sharp into the corners when shooting at f/8.0
