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 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Refined optical performance

Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and Super ED 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

Want to lock focus at the current setting? No problem. Located on the lens barrel, the focus hold button is easy to reach so you can concentrate on getting the shot.
