ZeissCamera lenses for M42 Mount from Carl Zeiss : Carl Zeiss AG announces two lenses for the ‘universal’ M42 lens mount. The Distagon T* 2.8/25 ZS and Distagon T* 2/35 ZS wide-angle lenses join the Planar T* 1.4/50 ZS, released in 2006. Both lenses are scheduled to begin shipping in May, 2007. The wide-angle ZS-lenses share identical specifications and performance to their ZF-counterparts for the Nikon F-mount. Like all the lenses in the Zeiss ZF-/ZS-line, they feature a durable, full metal precision mount and engraved scales. The 9-blade iris has precise stops in 1/2 steps and a ‘bokeh’ effect. The Distagon T* 2.8/25 ZS features an extreme close-up potential with a minimum object distance of only 6 cm from the front lens element.

Through use of 3rd party lens adapters, the Zeiss ZS M42 mount lenses are compatible with a wide range of 35 mm SLR and DSLR cameras in manual stop-down mode (to ensure focus at infinity, the lens registration distance of the camera must be shorter than the 45.5 mm on the M42 lens). For example, the German company, Novoflex, manufacturers M42 lens mount adapters to fit onto the Canon EOS, Canon XL, Leica-M and the Four-Thirds camera systems. Adapters for the Nikon F-Mount, Minolta Maxxum/Sony Alpha and Pentax K-mount are also available through several other companies. To maintain the electronic focus confirmation on Canon EOS cameras, there is even an adapter available with a built-in chip.
