If you’re a Zeiss fan, and you’re shooting portraits on a full-frame E-mount
or and APS-C NEX Sony camera, this is the lens you’ll want. With an
extreme capacity to create clarity in super low light, plus a shallow depth of
field and a minimum focusing distance of 2.62 feet, it will excel as your goto
portrait lens, and in many other situations, including wedding and event
The signature Batis OLED lens barrel display will help you take full
advantage of the low light conditions that inspire your creativity because it
makes finding your parameters nearly fool-proof in any lighting situation.
However, when you want to rely on autofocus, the linear motor is quick,
quiet, and precise. It’s also further enhanced by built-in optical image
stabilization, making it as great for video as it is for still photography.
Whatever conditions you like to shoot in, the advanced Sonnar optics will
virtually eliminate aberrations, distortion, lens flare, and ghosting: 11
floating elements are broken into 8 groups. They’re combined with the Carl
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating. The renowned Zeiss micro-contrast doesn’t
disappoint and extends to the edges.
Like all Zeiss Batis lenses, this one is entirely constructed from metal, aside
from the rubberized focus rings. It’s also equipped for any adventure that
you’re up for, with world-class dust and weather sealing.
