Preferred use: Executive portraits under time pressure and available light conditions, editorial, people, travel, candid portraits on location, weddings, theatrical and stage photography.

  • Astonishingly fast, precise focusing
  • Results can be used to produce poster-sized pictures of perfect quality


The Planar® T* 2/110 lens is the fastest Carl Zeiss lens in 6x6 medium format. Focusing with this fast lens and the Hasselblad Acute Matte focusing screen is stunningly fast and precise. With the Planar T* 2/110 lens the full aperture of 2 can, however, not only be used for focusing. The lens is so well corrected that the full aperture can be used for picture taking. This is a result of Carl Zeiss' experience as main supplier for super speed lenses to the motion picture industry. In still photography this high speed Planar lens is an excellent tool for portrait photography. Combined with a modern 200 series Hasselblad camera featuring Hasselblad's quick return mirror, the photographer has unparalled control of his portrait taking situation.
This is especially useful with executive portraits: They mostly ought to show some of the executive's environment with unwanted detail blurred out by a large aperture, need to have high technical qualitiy to enable poster size enlargements, and have to be done under considerable time constraints, often in available light – the perfect task for the Planar T* 2/110 lens. Similar situations face the candid wedding photographer and the theatrical and stage performance photo specialist. On top of that the Planar T* 2/100 lens is an impressive piece of "glass"!
