May will see the delivery of the camera lens with the widest angle from the Distagon line, the Distagon T* 2.8/15 according to the premium camera lens manufacturer, Carl Zeiss.

The upcoming entry into the Distagon lineup will feature a super wide angle lens will have a price tag of $2,948 when it will be released into the market.

The Distagon T* 2.8/15 will likely appeal to photography enthusiasts who are focus on landscapes and architecture which require wide shooting angles that offer more time to manually focus the lens. The Distagon T* 2.8/15 will join the other fixed focal length lenses of the Distagon line from 18mm up to 35mm.

Only a small number of clients will be able acquire the Distagon T* 2.8/15 due to its high price. Despite this the German lens manufacturer continues to maintain its position among photography enthusiasts and professional who may be eager to acquire the device given the reputation of the company that offers lenses with a premium reputation, optical quality, and a solid build.

The Distagon T* 2.8/15 will feature fifteen optical elements which include a pair of aspheric elements along with glass that has an unusual partial dispersion that offers an amazing improvement for chromatic aberration. The chromatic aberration happen naturally as different light colors travel in different paths across the lens. This will result to color fringes in high contrast areas particularly along the edges of the image.

The distortion is controlled extremely well on the Distagon T* 2.8/15, which is not easy to do for super wide angle lenses that have the tendency to bend parallel lines outward. The close focus distance of the Distagon T* 2.8/15 is 25cm and does not offer any autofocus, which is normal for the lenses from Zeiss. Due to this focusing will be done by the users themselves.

The Distagon T* 2.8/15 also has its own built-in lens hood for protection although a 95mm screw-on filter can still be added into the lens.
