|DISTAGON||Retrofocus lens based on asymmetric Distagon optical design. First Distagon appeared in 1953, the optical scheme has evolved since then and is now used not only in Carl Zeiss lens.|
|T*||The multi-layer coating is applied to the surface of lens elements. It boosts light transmission, ensures sharp and high contrast images, minimizes ghosting and flares.|

Design and Features
The 15 mm Distagon® f/3.5 lens incorporates the latest advances in the design of high speed lenses with an extremely large angular field and - owing to the free movement of the mirror - an extremely long back focal distance compared with the focal length.
For the demanding amateur and the professional photographer, the 110º Distagon® therefore is a tool which opens up new possibilities in the true sense of the word. Just think of the problem of lighting when taking photographs of interiors with lenses with large angular fields. Here, the speed is of great advantage.
Or consider the extreme wide-angle perspective which is of great importance for picture composition, and not only for advertising photography. We should perhaps mention the possibility of model pictures which sometimes convey a better spatial impression of the construction project than the model itself. The high speed provides a bright viewfinder image and therefore ensures convenient focusing.
In landscape and architectural photography, and when stopped down only moderately, the 110º Distagon® lens also permits full-view pictures, even the corners of which are superbly illuminated.
The lens incorporates a floating system that provides correction of aberrations and ensures constantly high image quality at the entire range of focusing distances from infinity down to the closest focusing distance. Learn more
