Zeiss slr lens
Hello I have a zeiss 35 2.0 for my canon eos1v
and I cannot find any info on zeiss lens and how they are in the rain,snow,harm conditions?
I have used it in very light rain with no problems but I know the 1v can really take a beating, just asking for any help from you guys on how the zeiss lens hold up.
Zeiss web site could be helpful.
If it is this lens:
I don't think it has any particular weather protection, because that would be mentioned.
I have looked at the site and found nothing about weather sealing, it would not make sense to me to offer such a professional product and not have it made to withstand rough weather.
If canon can make great sealed lens I canít see why zeiss couldnít or wouldn't
I'd use the Canon lens in those condition.
No weather sealing but they make up on build quality and of course optical quality.
i have the 50/1.4 and they are not wheather-protected (says the guy in the shop)
Got an email back from Zeiss in which they say they are not specially weather sealed have no problem getting wet , but should be carful in a very heavy rain.
As far I'm concern Zeiss lenses are great in any weather conderns!
Their 3-d look looks great in bad weather... :)

They're not weather sealed and they are not anything special either, aside from the 21mm. The 35mm f2 is very good.
I made the mistake of buying several of these for my Nikon. Waste of money and now I'm selling them.
