Pros: Image quality, design, no distortion, compact, sharp corners, bokeh

Cons: No longer the price

Opinion: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01LSK5QBI?linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&creativeASIN=B01LSK5QBI&tag=geizhals1-21&ascsubtag=biBBZMIBI570ZJDYkdqdjA Have you have been thinking about this lens. The time is now to get it. I already have the zeiss classic, but the milvus lens is superior in every aspect. Especially the images uploeaded here by Teper and Antothefly impressed me a lot. I will use this lens to do my first milky way shots.

Pros: Image quality, design, no distortion, compact, sharp corners, bokeh

Cons: Price

Opinion: I sold my Canon 16-35mm 2.8L II to buy this lens. I support the Zeiss 18mm 2.8 with my Sigma 24mm 1.4 as well. I use the Milvus 18mm 2.8 for landscape and architecture. I use the 24mm 1.4 when I need AF or in low light. The Milvus lens is sharp for corner to corner at 2.8 to f16 and f22 is still good on 5D Mark III. It has very low distortion, and beautiful colors and contrast. It takes 77mm filters, and it has no problems with polariser AND two Lee filter slots in use.

Pros: Plasticity, Flare, Colours, Microcontrast, Containment of lateral chromatic aberations (purpite)

Cons: Persistent vignetting, CAPS

Opinion: Excellent lens very constant to all apertures especially from f5.6 on the whole frame shines especially on weak lights in the hours between sunset and dawn, excellent cleaning of the image on long poses with faithful colors with a beautiful plasticity of the image. Very valid especially for managing scenes in rapid "meteorological" change; Long poses where it is possible to make only a single shot, thanks to the maximum dynamic range given by the characteristics open and detailed shadows Zeiss (abinato to the 14.8stop light of the current rooms) also taking advantage of the vignetting points often you can better manage the sun in the room. Another very interesting point, are the flare in backlight that are very contained especially with narrow diaphragms are easily correctable in PP. Formidable and constant focus in situations of darkness (manualfocus) and with large temperature changes, it is not affected by differences in expansion on focus (like other longer focal lengths; tested between -30 and +30 ° C) It does not vignette more with fine circular filters and has the advantage of being able to mount them with the hood that especially with the polarizarori improve the yield since they are normally used with the side sun. With such a solid bayonet it would be fantastic to be able to quickly engage the support for GND filters without having to screw it (which with dilations are often difficult / impossible to disassemble) it would also be interesting to be able to mount special GND filters that compensate for the vignetting according to the diaphragm used. The atropicalized construction very well executed by a good protection as long as it is mounted on the machine (it loses all its protection when the rear cover is mounted since the cover can not seal against the appropriate blue gasket) The retrofocus construction combined with the very rigid and solid hood gives a remarkable protection to the front lens The variation of the settings focusing slightly changes the angle of view and the wheel diaphragm by varying the positions of the stars in the light sources, not usable in Focus stacking. I find very interesting the fine art prints made on large formats such as A2 with 300dpi and A1 with 200dpi taken with the following ISO 64 f8 settings with 14 bit depth.

Pros: It's a Zeiss

Cons: The usual crappy front and back caps

Opinion: Some Milvus (50mm f 1.4 - 18mm f 2.8 - 85mm f 1.4 - 35mm f 1.4) have been totally redesigned by Zeiss and the difference between these and the counterparts of the previous Classic ZE-ZF.2 series are really embarrassing, like switching from an old tube monitor to a modern 5k. Specifically, this 18mm is a spectacle of lens, the sum of everything a digital photographer could want: very little distortion, high sharpness and microcontrast, very pleasant blur, small size and weight. Materials of excellence, all glass and brushed metal, finishes of very high quality, unattainable. In my Milvus layette (it is that of the holidays, on weekdays I use Art and Nikon) this beautiful 18 has advantageously gone to support the Milvus 15mm in the super-wide angle sector. Defects? Well, vignetting for both but nothing irreparable, and those who know the Zeiss know that this defect is congenital of the brand. To close, as always when it comes to Milvus highly recommended lens for all lovers of optics and mechanics of the highest level and of course for those who make aesthetics a priority, handling one of these works of art triggers an unquantifiable lust on these pages ...

Pros: Optical quality, mechanical construction, compact size, low weight, eye-catching styling, tropicalization.

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: It is very sharp throughout the frame even at full opening, even on the extreme edges, extremely sharp closing a single diaphragm, then remains practically the same, sharp always. Beautiful full colors, bright on the frame, living image, medium contrast, open shadows, and even in the viewfinder the image is bright, more than with the 14 - 24 F 2.8 that I hold the sun front and on the edges of the field of view excellently. Solid and fluid fire, silent diaphragm, metal lampshade with velvet carry as it used to be, there is no game on anything, MaF scale and PdC, point for MaF in IR. An 18 mm focuses well even without AF and without stigmometer, therefore, no difficulty of MaF, I go with the green dot and do not use the Live View. Used on 2 X D 810 and D4: excellent optics. It mounts very normal filters from 77 m. I took the Milvius 18 mm F 2.8, never tried before, and not the Milvius 21 mm F 2.8 that I tried well, simply because the 18 mm F 2.8 is a very recent design optical, while the 21 mm F 2.8 is 20-year design and because the Zeiss does not combine jokes with quality: in my opinion it is better the 18 mm than the 21 mm, as optical yield. It costs a bit but gives a lot in terms of optical and mechanical quality, the price/quality ratio is very good, it does not cost expensive for what it gives.
