Its metal barrel and bayonet as well as elaborate protection against dust and spray make the lens perfect for shooting in demanding outdoor conditions – and also guarantee its constant readiness for many years of intensive use.
Compact yet extremely capable – ZEISS worked in close collaboration with Sony to create a high-precision lens, containing aspherical lenses as well as extra-low dispersion glass to ensure a portable size, while delivering exquisite image quality at the same time.
The optical elements of ZEISS lenses feature T*® anti-reflective coating on all surfaces and an optical design that guarantees images of superior brilliance at all times, even in unfavourable lighting conditions. We apply the anti-reflective coating to the lens surfaces by the vapour deposition of extremely thin, transparent layers on the glass. In this process, special substances are vaporized with extremely high energy in a high-vacuum environment and are subsequently deposited on the glass surfaces, one after another, as layers with precisely controlled thicknesses to achieve the desired reduction of reflective properties. The first coating techniques were employed by ZEISS as long ago as in the 1930s.
A silent autofocus mechanism means you can capture the details of an intimate moment with great precision. This is very useful in both film and photographic situations where you and your subjects do not want to be disturbed by mechanical noises.
Take advantage of all the benefits of full frame photography with a compact lens that is as versatile as it is capable. Compared to an equivalent full frame SLR lens, it is light and small enough not to weigh you down. And it is also suitable for use on APS-C size camera bodies, but please note the crop factor when considering the angle of view.
