The Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA E-Mount Lens is a prime, normal focal length lens featuring a very fast and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to support working in dimly-lit conditions and for greater control over focus for shallow depth of field imagery. The sophisticated Sonnar optical design enables high resolution and sharpness with optimised low-light shooting capabilities. A Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity.Additionally, a dust- and moisture-resistant construction ensures this lens' use in tough environmental conditions.This prime normal-length lens features a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to benefit working in low-light conditions and for greater control over the plane of focus.Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating lessens lens flare and ghosting for contrast-rich imagery with sustained color neutrality.Dust- and moisture-resistant design enables ensured performance when working in inclement environmental conditions.Nine-blade circular diaphragm enables a smooth out-of-focus quality that is well-suited to shallow depth of field imagery.
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 9-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.
Shoot with confidence anywhere
Some of the most exciting images are captured in challenging environments. A dust and moisture resistant design means that the lens will continue to perform reliably in moderately wet or dusty conditions, so you can shoot with confidence wherever those great shots are found.
Outstanding colour and contrast
The ZEISS T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
