Fast F1.8 for broad creative control
Renowned Zeiss® contrast and resolution bring out the best in full-frame image sensors such as those in the Sony α7 series, and a large F1.8 maximum aperture can produce beautiful full-frame background bokeh. You can also stop down for extended depth-of-field. A bright lens like this is also an advantage when shooting in low light.
Smooth bokeh enhances depth and dimension
A nine-blade circular aperture works with this lens's state-of-the-art optics to create beautifully smooth bokeh in out-of-focus background areas when desired, with natural-looking highlights that won't distract from the important foreground subject and details.
Sony and ZEISS team up for better images
Advanced technology from Zeiss® and Sony combines in a precision optical design with three aspherical elements, two double-sided, that effectively reduce all forms of aberration while achieving outstanding image-wide sharpness and contrast. The Zeiss® T* coating suppresses internal reflections, for sublime contrast from highlights to deep blacks.
