Dustin Abbott The image quality from the Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* is rich and nuanced; fully in line with the high standard of the Milvus lineup and the Zeiss brand. The Milvus 35 comes with the typical Zeiss drawbacks too: manual focus only, heavy, and expensive.
It is a bright, high-quality optic with smooth bokeh and a very well balanced set of properties.[...] It exudes a feeling of quality [...] The manual focus is utterly smooth and the point of focus is very easy to achieve. There is a high price to pay for this.
