Combining a versatile 55mm focal length with a bright F1.8 maximum aperture, this prime lens produces stunning portraits, nature studies and more. High performance ZEISS optics ensure outstanding resolution and contrast, while a dust and water resistant design gives you peace of mind when shooting outdoors.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar® lens
The F1.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar® T* has a wide aperture, which allows more light to enter the lens. The unique T* multilayer lens coating gives you sharp, true-colour image reproduction – without flare or ‘ghosting’. The wide aperture also enables you to control foreground and background blur levels, so you can be more creative with your photos.
9-blade circular aperture
The unique 9-blade circular design lets the aperture remain almost perfectly circular throughout the full range of F-stops. This makes it possible to achieve smoother, more natural defocusing in your images – including artistic blurring or ‘bokeh’ – and greater control over the depth of field.
35mm Full Frame imaging
This 35mm Full Frame prime lens is designed to work with the latest Full Frame E-mount cameras from Sony, delivering outstanding contrast and resolution right out to the edges of the image.
Advanced aspherical lens technology
Aspherical lens technology maximises portability without sacrificing imaging power. The lens combines three aspherical elements with one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to deliver high-precision shots and breathtaking rendering – without the bulky design usually associated with similar DSLR lenses.
Large F1.8 aperture
The large F1.8 maximum aperture lets more light reach the lens sensor, making it possible to capture sharp, no-noise images in tricky indoor or low-light conditions.
