Pros: Compact, sharp, contrasty, works well against the light, low distortion. And as usual with Zeiss, excellently built.

Cons: High vignetting at f/2. Some field curvature. Price when new (fortunately, finding used ones is not difficult). And as usual with Zeiss, lens cap sucks.

Opinion: My favourite travel wide angle. My copy (bought 2nd hand) is sharp from f/2. Some precautions are needed because of field curvature: centering the subject, focussing, then reframing is not a good idea. The framing should be done first, and focussing on an off-centre subject is something to get used to. Of course, stopped down, the field curvatire issue is no longer there. Bokeh is rather good for a WA, but not the best (slightly more nervous than Sigma 24/1.4 A at comparable apertures). Having the sun in or outside the frame is no issue. Vignetting, as often with Zeiss, is rather high but not unpleasant (no "clipped corners" effect).

Pros: Sharp, contrasted, blurred pleasant, perfect mechanical construction, compact and lightweight compatibly with the materials used

Cons: Lack of tropicalization

Opinion: When I saw the features of the Milvus 1.4/25 I thought that in Zeiss they were crazy: beautiful lens, I mean, but it's ridiculously huge, and that aperture more than the old Distagon 2/25 costs an enormity, not only in economic terms, but in Concrete usability in the field of optics. So I decided to grab one of the last still available specimens of the old Distagon 2/25 and to flank it to the two Milvus 2/50 and 2/100 on my EOS 5ds. I'm more than satisfied, made color like the other two, neutral, blurred pleasant despite being a true wide angle, in the reportage in ambient light I often prefer it to the Canon 24/1.4 L II, precisely because of the lesser "intrusiveness" of this Small Zeiss gem. I still do not understand why they did not make the Milvus version of this (weather sealed) instead of creating that (though charming) superbright fat. But precisely, when I need that brightness I have the Canon EF L, which is also autofocus, which does not hurt, and it cost me just over half.

Pros: Small and compact, mechanical construction excellent, optically very sharp, excellent color rendering and excellent performance reflections

Cons: Center soft wide open, with morbidini edges up to F 4

Opinion: I went into the store to buy the Milvus 25 F 1.4, but after taking it in hand I didn't get it because they really too large and too heavy, is a mammoth for 35 mm. I purchased used this Zeiss Distagon 25 F 2, in excellent condition, and I am very pleased: it is a scheme for older than optical soft Centre F2, valid on D 810 F 2.8, and borders moscini until F4, but stopping down to F/5.6 and beyond is extremely sharp on tutt or the frame. Great color rendition, blurred very progressive and sweet. Build quality Zeiss, of excellence. Do not build more, they replaced it with a monster, for sure sharpest already wide open, like the Milvus 18 F 2.8 I have, but take a crack that thing there is a nightmare, while this Distagon here is small, weighs less than half and it works fine.

Pros: construction and optical performance

Cons: considerable price

Opinion: I recently decided to sell my 14-24mm, optical definitely of great quality but in my opinion hardly manageable in light situations not controllable, because of a high tendency to create unwanted reflections. This 25mm, which I took with the 18mm and the 35mm zeiss, I did certainly regret my choice: in addition to its unbeatable mechanical construction that brings me back to the time when I was young and the optics were built with materials now disused The 25mm ensures a remarkable sharpness, even at the edges; a commendable distortion control; one blurred very pleasant; the usual color rendering typical zeiss; transparency in the shadows that really makes a difference and, last but not least, a good control of reflexes. The good results even at the widest apertures allows use even in the reportage. In short, it costs a lot, but worth much.

Pros: Construction of high-quality metal lens hood. Dial focus impeccable. T * coating is recognized worldwide. Sharpness and overall performance definitely over the top: Seeing is believing. Blurred pleasant even if we talk about a wide angle lens.

Cons: Cost is not negligible, although in line with the competition. Pays the price of a lower aperture for me is not a flaw, however, is right to point this out to their impartiality and review of all cases superior to the old version of f/2.8.

Opinion: I have this wonderful lens for about a month. And 'needless to say it was love at first sight. The sensations that gives you about handling, balance, overall optical performance are truly unmatched. Distortion and chromatic aberrations very well controlled. Build quality and reliability that the Nikon lenses (almost) can only dream of. The manual focus is a breeze. Very helpful I was previously using old manual lenses on medium format analog Zenzanon. Then go to this German lens (made in Japan though) it was like drinking a glass of water in one gulp. Mounted on return D800E incredible detail without the need to give the unsharp mask. Advantage, then, of the crop in the room (a factor of 1.2 x and 1.5 x factor dx) it is possible to make the above lens as if it were virtually wide-angle zoom: there is also a 30mm and a 37.5mm equivalent! Recommended purchase for all those who know what they want!
