Zeiss Is Discontinuing a Number of Classic Lenses

Seven of the familiar primes will no longer be produced

Zeiss has announced that it is discontinuing seven of its nine Classic lenses for DSLR cameras and replacing them with the new Milvus lenses of the same focal length. For the time being the company will continue to produce two of the Classic lenses—the ZEISS Planar T* 1.4/50 and the ZEISS Planar T* 1.4/85—because of their technical optical differences from the Milvus line.

The lenses that will be discontinued are:

Distagon T* 2,8/15

Distagon T* 3,5/18

Distagon T* 2/25

Distagon T* 2,8/25

Distagon T* 2/28

Distagon T* 1,4/35

Apo Sonnar T* 2/135
