This full-frame wide-angle lens with a fixed focal length is equipped with the legendary Zeiss optics. The lens is designed for professionals and demanding amateur photographers who wants to shoot portraits, everyday snapshots, and night-time scenes. Its shallow depth of field and circular 9-blade aperture help to create a smooth bokeh effect with ease. The minimum focus distance also lets you photograph flowers and other similar objects.
The quiet and precise DDSSM focus drive takes care of focus in both photo and video modes, even at the lowest depth of field. A responsive aperture ring lets you switch between two modes - touch response mode for still images and continuous silent mode for shooting videos.
This lens is the first of the new E-mount range that offers an exceptional F1.4 aperture. Even when fully open, the image remains razor sharp from edge to edge. This is provided by a sophisticated lens mechanism with aspherical optical elements, including one AA (advanced aspherical) element from Sony. The Zeiss T* anti-glare coating reduces lens flare and ghosting, resulting in unmatched optical performance, accurate colour reproduction, and excellent contrast.
Like all FE lenses, this lens is resistant against dust and moisture, which makes it ideal for use in harsh environments. The packaging includes a lens hood and a practical protective case.
