Carl Zeiss introduces robust ZF-I lens series

Carl Zeiss announces the robust ZF-I series, a line of high-quality lenses which are optimized for industrial applications. The imaging properties of the ZF-I lenses are the same as those of the high-end ZF lenses. The silver metal finish immediately identifies the industrial version. Furthermore, the ZF-I series is particularly suitable for rough technical applications. The lenses are protected against spray water and specially sealed against dust.

What professional photographers feel enthusiastic about we at Carl Zeiss do not want to keep from other users of lenses for technical applications. With the new ZF-I series, Carl Zeiss has launched a line of high-quality lenses which are optimized for the challenging tasks in industrial applications.

The imaging properties of the ZF-I lenses are just as excellent as those of the high-end ZF lenses. The silver metal finish immediately identifies the industrial version. Furthermore, the ZF-I series is particularly suitable for rough technical applications. The lenses are protected against spray water and specially sealed against dust.

In addition to classical image capturing, the new lenses can also be used for machine vision, quality assurance and near-range photogrammetry. Both the aperture setting and focus can be locked for these tasks. For this purpose, the lenses are supplied with five locking screws which enable reliable locking of the adjustments once they have been set. Measuring inaccuracies and errors are thus reduced, and there is no need to waste time checking the settings.

The first lenses available in this new industrial line are the wide-angle Distagon T* 2,8/25 ZF-I, Distagon T* 2/28 ZF-I and the Distagon T* 2/35 ZF-I. All lenses offer the proverbial imaging performance and color fidelity associated with the ZEISS standard and feature the F-bayonet – the most commonly used standard camera adapter in the technical area.


Distagon T* 2/28 ZF Wide-angle Lens from Carl Zeiss

Carl Zeiss has introduced a high-speed, wide- angle lens to meet even the highest demands. The Distagon T* 2/28 ZF – a top-of-the-line lens for challenging industrial applications – is now available. It represents the traditional quality features of high-end lens design: optimum resolution, color fidelity, and a precise mechanical design – combined with optical elements made entirely of glass.

The high maximum aperture of 1:2 and the 28 mm focal length make the Distagon T* 2/28 ZF ideal for industrial applications. It features excellent speed and – due to the complex floating element design – outstanding imaging performance over the entire focusing range.

The ZF lens series from Carl Zeiss is suitable for cameras with F-bayonet (AIS generation) mounts and full-format sensors, thus meeting the standard for high-resolution industrial cameras. The strong, all-metal mechanical system for precise focusing and the reliable aperture setting also meet the high requirements for industrial applications. In addition, the Distagon T* 2/28 ZF offers an exceptionally good price/performance ratio.
