    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:
    http://lenses.zeiss.com/photo/en_DE/...235.usage.html

    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

    No weather sealing but they make up on build quality and of course optical quality.

    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.
