The Zeiss 18mm f/3.5 Distagon T* ZE Lens is a very high quality , manual focus-only, ultra-wide angle lens . If you need very high image quality, don't need autofocus and an f/3.5 aperture is wide enough for you, you will want to finish reading this review.

This is the best wide angle lens you can possibly find on the market. This all manual all metal 18mm beast will outperform most, if not all, primes available today. I have been shooting with a lot of different lenses including all Canon primes and by far I find this Zeiss the best.

I have a Canon T2i and a Mark II and several Canon lenses - mainly primes; I prefer primes. I heard about the Zeiss "look", although I was not sure what that meant.

I purchased this lens a few months ago and it is amazing. I slapped this beast on my Canon 5D Mark III and it is now my go-to. The image quality is astonishing. I did a ton of research on wide angle glass for over a year before going for this.

I was bit hesitant when I purchased this lens. But I am in love with it after shooting several landscape photos. The colors are absolutely beautiful.

Using this lens with a Canon 6D, I am quite happy with it. It captures beautiful landscapes and cutting edge architecture. Works as good when shooting persons.

I bought this lens because I needed a great wide lens for video and I had the 17-40mmL from Canon, which wasn't good enough for me. I bought it right away because I own the 35mm f1.4 and the 50mm f1.4 from Carl Zeiss and those are the best lenses I've ever had.

This lens is a product that simply does what it's supposed to do--it lets you be creative. Buy it. You won't be sorry.
