On Wednsday, Zeiss announced a new lens in its Milvus line – the Milvus 1.4/35 which Zeiss claim should be “immune” to chromatic aberration.
In case you forgot the Milvus line of lenses is considered the new “regular” line for DSLR (Canon/Nikon), manual lenses, with d-click option, weather proof, with the same image quality throughout the line. The new lens is the 10’th lens in this line (you can find more info on all of Zeiss lens lines in our Zeiss Photokina 2016 interview).
