ZEISS Milvus 85mm f/1.4 ZE Lens for Canon EF

The subject stands out with astounding clarity against a background that vanishes masterfully in the soft bokeh of the image composition. The highly precise, manual focus of the ZEISS Milvus 1.4/85 lets the observer experience every single detail.

The redesigned ZEISS Milvus 1.4/85 lens is particularly suitable for portrait photography. This lens is an absolute must for compositions where the main subject is to be sharply defined and emphasized against a beautiful bokeh background. The purely spherical optical design and use of special types of glass ensure optimal micro-contrast and extremely low chromatic aberration. The result: outstanding photographs every time – with the champion of bokeh.

Excellent imagery, even in difficult light conditions

Outstanding stray light reduction is achieved by combining a number of optimally matched measures. In addition to the ZEISS T* coating, all lens edges are provided with a special pitch-black lacquer in a complex manual process. Light traps in mechanical components and specially designed surfaces are integrated to prevent the occurrence of reflections.

Future-proof solution for high-resolution camera systems

The excellent image performance of the ZEISS Milvus Lenses is sharply focused on the requirements of current and future high-performance digital cameras. Thanks to the low level of stray light allowed by the lens design, high-contrast images are also possible with increasing high dynamic ranges of the sensors (HDR). The optics are designed to ensure full utilization of the performance provided by high-resolution camera systems.

Creative still and video photography through precise, manual focusing

Manually focusing a lens means controlling and therefore actively composing an image gently and precisely from your fingertips. Here, a good ergonomic design makes all the difference. ZEISS Milvus Lenses feature a large rotation angle which enables pinpoint focusing. The silent, continuous aperture setting (de-click function with ZF.2 mount) and the long focusing range lay also optimal conditions for video photography.

Long-lasting product with protection against environmental influences

ZEISS Milvus Lenses will impress you not only due to their visual and haptic excellence, but also thanks to their inner qualities. Special seals for protection against dust and splashes expand the photographer's creative potential by guaranteeing the system's functional reliability even in environmentally difficult situations.

Stable image performance over the entire focusing range

The Floating Elements Design permits constantly high image performance in the focal plane – from the minimum object distance to infinity. This is accomplished by changing the axial distance between individual lens elements or element groups. The mechanical design of the ZEISS Milvus Lenses is highly complex and the workmanship must be extremely exact – both specialties of ZEISS.

The Planar lens design is the most successful – and most frequently copied – camera lens design of all time. Modifications to the tried-and-tested six-lens basic type ensure that it achieves the high imaging quality required by modern sensors. Lenses with a Planar optical design enable consistent performance across a large range of image scales – the key requirement for universal macro-lenses.
