The Zeiss Milvus range claims to offer the very highest quality. Manual focus only, the Milvus lenses are available in ZF.2 fit for Nikon and ZE fit for Canon. The previously tested Otus lenses were superb but very highly priced, so it will be interesting to see how this lower priced Milvus range fares and whether or not it too delivers the goods, but at a more reachable price level.
Handling and Features
Made in Japan, the manufacturing quality is not in doubt. The metal finish is beautifully engineered and all controls are as smooth as silk. The Milvus 15mm f/2.8 is a solid, beautiful object in its own right, weighing in at 880g (Nikon fit) and 947g (Canon fit). There is a 95mm filter thread, although with an ultra-wide lens it would seem prudent to only use filters if absolutely necessary and then to choose thin designs to avoid any vignetting.
