ZEISS Batis 40mm
This short, normal prime lens is compatible with both full-frame and crop sensor Sony E-mount cameras. An excellent choice when you need to get close to your subject, this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4 inches, a minimum working distance of 5.5 inches, and a maximum magnification of 1:3:3.
You’ll welcome opportunities to shoot in low light, which is no match for the f/2 aperture that will also enhance your selective focus techniques. Whatever the lighting conditions, advanced optics ensure that color fringing, aberrations, lens flare, and ghosting won’t interfere with your perfect shot. This is due to the Distagon design, which includes two aspherical elements, three anomalous partial dispersion glass elements, plus one low-dispersion aspherical element. The Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating covers each, so all you’ll get is the incredible clarity and contrast that Zeiss lenses are known for.
Customizing your parameters is easy because of Zeiss’s OLED lens ring display. Since this lens is stellar in low light, you’ll appreciate the innovative design—you’ll never have trouble seeing your settings. When you’re not in the mood to dial in your focus, a linear motor ensures that autofocus is fast and crisp, yet quiet.
Like all Zeiss Batis lenses, this one is entirely constructed from metal, aside from the rubberized focus rings. It’s also well-equipped for your next adventure, with world-class dust and weather sealing.
