The latest Milvus range of DSLR lenses for Canon and Nikon from renowned German lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss are marketed to offer high-quality optical performance in a similar price bracket to such high-resolution options as Sigma’s Art range or Canon’s L-series lenses. The manual-focus Milvus range offers all-metal dust- and splash-proof construction, large rubberized focus ring, smooth manual focus control, as well as engraved focus distance and depth of field scales. Announced in September 2015, the $1117 Carl Zeiss Milvus 2/35mm ZE Canon (Milvus 35mm f/2) is an EF-mount lens designed specifically for full-frame Canon DSLRs, such as the EOS 5DS R.
We’ve tested 130 lenses on Canon’s flagship camera, the full-frame 18-Mpix Canon EOS-1D X Mk II, covering focal lengths ranging from an incredibly wide 11mm up to a super-telephoto 600mm.
We’ve split the results between primes and zooms and then arranged them into three groups according to use. This equates to ultra-wide and wide-angle, standard, and telephoto to help you narrow down the best performer in each.
However, this time we’ve compared lenses from the perspective of the camera’s intended market — the photojournalist. While they’re not really any different from the next photographer when it comes to choosing focal length, there are some models that perhaps require further consideration.
Our technicians have tested no fewer than 130 lenses on Canon’s 50.6Mp EOS 5DS R Digital SLR. With the results for both prime and zoom lenses covering a diverse range of focal lengths, we’ve got all the data you need for picking out the right lens. In Part 1 of our three-part review, we bring you the analyzed and verified scores for standard zoom lenses as well as 35mm, 50mm and 85mm primes on the Canon EOS 5DS R.
Early in the year Canon updated its high-speed 35mm f/1.4 L series prime, which is the first revamp of this model since the original was introduced in 1998. Read on to find out how well this new lens performs.
Hi DxO, you ought to use 5Ds for benchmark test for lenses, because another canceled-model's color management is confused and noisy easily in photograph. In experience speaking, 5Ds is the best performer for these EF lenses. We would like to know results of test score of EF lenses by using 5Ds.
Pay close note to the sharpness measurements. The Canon is sharper than the 35 Art on the wide open end and equivalently sharp from f/4 - f/16. bu the fact that the Canon stops down to f/22 (and the Sigma doesn't!) punishes Canon's average.
On apertures that both lenses offer, the Canon is a sharper lens.
The BR Optics are pretty intriguing to me. Purple fringing is a peeve of mine on my favorite lens wide open in high contrast situations. The numbers in your tests certainly make it look like it has the desired effect. Very cool looking lens if it's a bit on the expensive side for me. Thanks! I look forward to seeing this tested on a 5DSR.
