Carl Zeiss performance and quality
Crafted by ZEISS

Founded in 1846, ZEISS AG is a legend in the field of camera optics. Their lenses are renowned for exceptional clarity, brightness, resolution, and contrast.

Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a camera by Sony featuring built-in SteadyShot™ image stabilisation and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh
Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Refined optical performance

Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.

Focus quickly and quietly

Internal focusing enables reduced minimum focusing distances and fast autofocus response, while a built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) ensures silent operation.

Hold button lets you lock focus
Lock focus in place
