Another New Carl Zeiss Lens 21mm f/2,8

The team at Carl Zeiss seem to to have dedicated this week just for announcements. Along with the Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 and the Planar T* 85mm f/1.4, Carl Zeiss has announced another new lens to be added to the SLR line-up, the legendary Distagon T* 21mm f/2.8. Ideal for all wide angle requirements, including architecture, landscapes, journalism and anywhere else a lens like this can contribute. Being introduced for SLR cameras with EF (Carl Zeiss for Canon), F (Nikon Mount) and K (Pentax mount) bayonets, these lenses are expected to hit the shelves by the the year ending 2008.
ProPix has always been suggesting the Zeiss lens because of its' ability to render colors, and images just the way a photographer imagines it to be. Freedom to create images, rather than just taking pictures, is how we look at it.
Carl Zeiss 18mm f3.5 was a surprise even for us, but the 21mm f/2.8 nicely rounds off a gap that has existed for some time. I personally can't wait to get my hands on one. Bangalore offers so many photographic opportunities, both for the professional photographers, and also for serious enthusiasts. a Carl Zeiss wide-angle as a walk around lens which can also perform well in low light is an excellent tool to add to the camera bag.
