    Zeiss has new 28mm F2 in Nikon F and Pentax K

    I just received this information from Zeiss.
    The have a new 28mm F2 lens in the Nikon F and Pentax K mounts.
    The price for either lens is $984
    We're now taking orders.

    The Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28 is a new, high-speed, wide-angle
    lens, complementing the line of advanced SLR lenses from Carl
    Zeiss for analog and digital 35 mm single lens reflex cameras.
    With a fast aperture of f/2 and a 28mm focal length, the
    Distagon T* 2/28 is the ideal bridge between the existing wide-
    angle lenses with 25mm and 35mm focal lengths.

    The new lens is available in two versions: Distagon T* 2/28 ZF
    for cameras with the F-bayonet mount and the Distagon T* 2/28
    ZK for cameras using a K-bayonet mount. It is one of the fastest
    lenses available in this focal length and is ideally suited for tak-
    ing photographs in unfavorable lighting conditions. Equipped
    with manual focus, a high quality metal casing and floating ele-
    ments, it provides demanding photographers with a creative,
    top-class tool with lasting value. The performance of the lens is
    consistent throughout the entire image field, even with profes-
    sional digital cameras featuring full format sensors.

    Lenses with a 28mm focal length are popular for landscape and architectural photography – and the Distagon T* 2/28 ZF is
    ideal even for high quality, close-range portraits. Due to the high speed of the lens, it is particularly suited for taking pictures
    indoors under natural light or other low light conditions.

    The Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28 uses floating elements, ensuring impressive image quality in both the close-up range as well as at
    longer distances. With a fast aperture of f/2, photographers enjoy greater creativity through flexible use of the depth-of-field.
    This enables them to effectively separate the subject from the background at full aperture and achieve a strong 3D effect. High
    image quality is provided under all conditions, from wide open to stopped down and at different focus ranges, despite the ex-
    tremely high speed.

    With its numerous, outstanding properties, the Distagon T* 2/28 from Carl Zeiss is a versatile, multi-purpose lens for the de-
    manding commercial, landscape and fine-art photographer. Thanks to the standard F and K bayonet mount connections, the
    lens can be integrated into the corresponding camera systems – with some limited compatibility on a case-by-case basis with
    the simpler camera models.

    Rob, is the filter thread 52mm as per most Nikkor thread sizes in that focal length range, or is it the Pentax filter thread size?

    Or, maybe it's larger to let more light in?
