Zeiss has built up a collection of Nikon F-mount lenses (which are additionally available, to a lesser degree, in Pentax Bayonet "K" and Screw "S" mounts) that are more than refined variants of its late, mourned Contax/Yashica-mount SLR Carl Zeiss lenses. The second lens released in this series, the 25mm f2.8 ZF Distagon, is an updated version of the first Contax SLR 25mm f2.8 Distagon, which was based upon the first 25mm Distagon composed in the mid 1960s for the Contex SLR system. It is heavier than its forerunner, with a somewhat wider filter thread (58mm versus 55mm).

In any case, similar to its widely praised forerunner, it is a heavenly lens, and, conceivably, the best 24mm/25mm lens as of now available. This new 25mm Distagon lens (like its Contax ancestor) effortlessly out-performs present and past 24mm f2.8 Nikkor lenses, particularly wide-open at f2.8, indicating generously more resolution and higher contrast. Any individual who owns a Nikon DSLR camera that accepts Nikon manual focusing AI/AI-S focal points - and additionally the individuals who owns Nikon manual focusing SLRs from the Nikon F onwards - ought to firmly consider adding this fine lens to their bag (The main real negative feature of this lens which may discourage potential buyers is that it doesn't come a proprietary Nikon computerized chip; Nikon did not give Zeiss consent to "chip" this lens.).

Works with Nikon's F (AI-S) SLR system.
