This ZEISS 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2 Planar T* Prime - F Mount lens captures people in their surroundings, playing with a range of sharpness, soft focus and contrast effects. Its distinctive circular bokeh is a crucial creative element. The ZEISS Planar T* 1.4/85 produces very high quality and shallow depth-of-field when wide open. This is especially suitable for isolating the main subject from the foreground and background. This lens is also suitable as a general-purpose lens.

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. The ZEISS Classic lenses have enjoyed an outstanding reputation with photographers all over the world for many years. The solid, all-metal mount ensures constant functionality and image performance, regardless of the number of photographs taken. Manual focusing promotes creativity in the design of the image.

9-Blade Aperture

Photographers guide the observer through the image, and minimal depth of focus is often used as a design element. This intentional blurring of the background maintains the attention of the observer on the subject (these different representations of the blurred areas, as well as the quality of the transition, are referred to as the Bokeh of a lens). The finely tuned features of the optical design on ZEISS SLR lenses ensure a particularly harmonious effect of the blurred areas of the image. The nine diaphragm blades and the resulting (virtually circular) aperture on ZEISS SLR lenses are crucial to favorable rendition of highlights in the fore and background.

Image Quality

The range of ZEISS T*® lenses offers the highest possible standards in terms of performance, reliability and, of course, image quality. You can count on highly advanced flare control for crisp and brilliant images, and virtually zero geometric distortion, ensuring precise accuracy when reproducing shapes. This is especially useful when photographing products and architecture. 

Stray Light Reduction

Rich, vibrant colors are vital to creating a lasting impression. Stray light in the lens, however, leads to a brightening of the image, which is particularly visible in shadowed areas. Image contrast is lowered, and the image appears dull and bleached. ZEISS combines various, elaborate techniques to reduce unwanted stray light. For example, all lens elements are coated with the famous ZEISS T*® anti-reflective coating. Additionally, a special jet black paint is applied by hand to all lens element edges to ensure that reflections are prevented from the start.

Precise Manual Focus

ZEISS lenses excel with their large rotation angle, which enables precise, fingertip focusing. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder. The high-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without play, supporting an intuitive interaction with the focal plane. The precise engraving in meters and feet, and the depth of focus scale provide additional support for manual focus.

ZEISS T* Anti-Reflective Coating

The optical elements of ZEISS lenses feature T*® anti-reflective coating on all surfaces and an optical design that guarantees images of superior brilliance at all times, even in unfavorable lighting conditions. ZEISS applies the anti-reflective coating to the lens surfaces by vapor deposition of extremely thin, transparent layers on the glass. In this process, special substances are vaporized with extremely high energy in a high-vacuum environment and are subsequently deposited on the optical surfaces, one after another as layers, with precisely controlled thicknesses to achieve the desired reduction of reflective properties.
