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.
