The Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8 Lens is a wide angle prime lens for use on APS-C-sized image sensors. This lens is compatible with Sony E mirrorless cameras and supports all camera functions, including autofocus and exposure control.
The Distagon design of this lens integrates a floating element design that includes two aspherical elements and three partial-dispersion elements to reduce aberrations and distortion to produce high image clarity, sharpness, and even brightness. Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have also been applied to all lens surfaces to improve light transmission and image contrast by minimizing surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting.
The lens features a metal lens barrel with rubberized control rings for high precision when working with manual focus. The lens offers smooth and reliable performance with high precision and control. A rigid metal bayonet mount ensures accurate alignment and a nearly circular nine-blade aperture works to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus highlight quality.
Sony E Compatibility: Designed for use on Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18mm. The lens offers complete compatibility with all camera functions, including accurate autofocus and exposure control. It features a wide f/2.8 maximum aperture that aids in low-light shooting as well as greater control over the focus plane for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.
Optical Design: This lens features the Distagon optical design with a floating element construction and includes two aspherical elements and three partial dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion while offering increased sharpness and even illumination. Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Physical Design: The lens features a rigid, durable metal barrel with rubberized control rings to provide improved handling abilities. The metal bayonet mount ensures a solid connection between the camera and lens, and a nine-blade, nearly circular aperture is used to smoothly render out-of-focus highlights.
