A strong performer in difficult lighting

In addition to a fundamentally high-performance optical design, extensive application of the renowned ZEISS® T* coating not only minimizes flare and ghosting for natural color reproduction, but is instrumental in achieving impressive contrast and accurate reproduction of subtle gradations as well.
