Zeiss lenses are known for being high quality, precision optical instruments with price tags to match. But what makes them so expensive anyway? This great video dives in to find out.
Coming to you from ZY Productions, this fun video takes a look at the Zeiss Loxia line of lenses and explains why they're relatively expensive pieces of glass. For lenses that aren't even equipped with autofocus, you might wonder why they carry such hefty price tags and if those prices are justified. I personally think they generally are if you need or want a lens of such a caliber. If you haven't shot with a Zeiss lens before, they're truly a joy to shoot with and produce beautifully sharp, clean images. While the Loxia line is not as flashy as something like a wide aperture Otus lens, I really appreciate the thought that went into the design of both each lens and of the series as a whole. I learned a few things about the lengths Zeiss went to to make these true professional instruments that can be relied upon and interchanged without a second thought. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
