A superior wide angle manual focus lens with unparalleled f/2.0 aperture, the Zeiss 28mm features a minimum object distance of 24 cm from the front element and offers the formidable sharpness and color that the Zeiss lenses are known for. The lens also offers virtually no geometric distortion, providing useful accuracy when photographing architecture.

Here it sits—-the neglected Zeiss wide-angle lens, stuck between arguably the best wide-angle lens made (the Zeiss ZE 21mm f/2.8 Distagon) and the universally acclaimed Zeiss ZE 35mm f/2 in the Zeiss lineup. So why isn’t this one quite as heralded as its siblings? To be honest, it’s not quite as sharp. It’s a great lens at f/4 or so, but when wide open, the corners and edges are a bit soft on a full-frame camera. On the other hand, if you’re jonesing for a 28mm prime lens, there’s nothing out there that’s better.
If you’re interested in finding good reviews of the various ZE lenses, with in-depth analysis of their strengths and weaknesses, we recommend spending a few dollars and getting Lloyd Chambers online review of the Zeiss lineup.
