Excellent Color and Contrast

While Zeiss lenses are renown for delivering outstanding color reproduction and contrast, the Zeiss T* coating is an essential contributing factor. The coating works by effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality--flare and ghosting are minimized for enhanced color and contrast to give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
