Zeiss ZK 25 images

Some from the Zeiss ZK 25.

Another very unique lens, it focuses to mm's away from the front element, allowing for dramatic closeups. I use it more for closeup work, but it's very capable as a landscape lens, right from f/2.8. It's very sharp right from wide open, and has no field curvature at infinity (according to this mini-review here: diglloyd: Mini review of Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 Distagon for Nikon/Canon )

f/2.8


100% crop


Landscapes wide open? Sure!


100% crop:

Thanks for the bump, dunerunner.

I've noticed a bit of paint loss at the base and on the focusing ring of the ZK 25. From one angle you can't see it and from another you can. Damn these new glasses, I'm starting to notice stuff all over the place.

As a result I'm lowering the price of the ZK 25 to $575 all-in, and downgrading the condition to Excellent. I'll update the product photos to better show the condition.

Thanks bigjonnee!

Price drops on the remaining lenses. Probably my last! (my last price drops, not lenses )

I'll be away next week, so my it's my last day of shipping before the 23rd (but I'll be able to respond to PM's)! Act now!

Thanks everybody.
