The redesigned ZEISS Milvus 1.4/50 corresponds to the perspective of the human eye on full-frame cameras and can, therefore, be used for many different purposes. In other words, it is a lens of many talents. Realistic imaging of three-dimensional objects is guaranteed at all times. Despite its high speed, the advanced ZEISS Distagon optical design ensures outstanding imagery across the entire image field – even at full aperture.  

More than a standard lens

ZEISS Milvus prime lenses are built specifically with the modern high-resolution multi-function Canon or Nikon DSLR in mind. Outstanding micro contrast, high suppression of flares and ghosting - you will be impressed with the consistently brilliant images you capture with these lenses. With its weather-sealed barrels and lens mounts, ZEISS Milvus lenses can be used in a wide range of conditions. The variety of focal lengths will suit the photographer or moviemaker who wants both precise control and stunning results.

A 50mm lens on a full-frame sensor has a pleasing perspective, the same as the human eye. Without the distortions of a wide-angle or the perspective compression of a telephoto lens, you have a natural, realistic field of view. The ZEISS Milvus 1.4/50 gives you a wide aperture for use in low light or to create beautifully blurred backgrounds and a technical build quality that delivers outstanding images from edge to edge – even at full aperture. This 50mm, standard focal length lens will reflect reality with images that are anything but standard.

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 top-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without backlash, optimally supporting the photographer's creative interplay with the focal plane of high-speed fixed focal lengths. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder or display. The engraving in meters and feet and the focus scale provide additional support for manual focusing. The silent, continuous aperture setting (de-click function with ZF.2 mount) and the long focusing range lay optimal conditions for video photography.

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 minimization of coma, astigmatism and spherical aberrations enables constantly high resolution over the entire image field. The optics are designed to ensure full utilization of the performance provided by high-resolution camera systems. Regardless of what the future holds with the Milvus lenses from ZEISS you are optimally equipped any time, any place.

Excellent imagery, even in difficult light conditions
All lenses feature a T*® antireflective coating from ZEISS. 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. Each focal length has its own individual optical design with the use of special types of glass displaying anomalous partial dispersion. This reduces the occurrence of colour fringes at high-contrast edges of subjects to an absolute minimum.

Stable image performance over the entire focusing range
State-of-the-art camera systems and high-resolution digital image sensors are now demanding more and more performance from the lenses. 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 adjustment of the element spacing is coupled to the distance setting so that it always results in the right correction. The mechanical design of the ZEISS Milvus lenses is highly complex and the workmanship must be extremely exact are both specialities of ZEISS.

Long-lasting product with protection against environmental influences
An optimized ergonomic design enables fatigue-free photography and reduces camera shake. The all-metal housing makes every adjustment a haptic experience. The dynamic, precise barrel design sets new trends in the world of camera lenses. However, the 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.
