Rate & Review

The compact, high-performance Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens has been specifically designed bring out the full performance potential of the a7-series full-frame E-mount camera bodies.

  • 55mm focal length and large aperture in a "normal" prime lens with impressive Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* contrast and resolution.
  • 35mm full frame format, a large f/1.8 maximum aperture, and sophisticated design make this lens ideal for the a7-series bodies.
  • 9-blade circular aperture contributes to gorgeous bokeh.
  • Dust and moisture resistant design.
Carl Zeiss T* Coating, Five Aspherical Elements, and One ED Glass Element Combine to Deliver Superior Image Quality
The T* (T-star) coating contributes to typically outstanding Carl Zeiss image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. The coating subdues reflections at the lens surfaces, increasing transmission and minimizing flare and ghosting that can compromise rendering. Natural color reproduction and impressive presence give subjects a lifelike quality. Five aspherical elements and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element in an advanced optical design reduce aberration and distortion to a minimum.

Fast f/1.8 Maximum Aperture
The f/1.8 aperture consistently provides outstanding performance and lets you take full advantage of the extra speed and brightness it provides. Whether you need the large aperture to shoot in low light, to achieve suitable shutter speeds for shooting action, or for creative control of background defocusing, the SEL55F18Z will reward you with stunning resolution and contrast where it counts.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization provides a marked reduction in image blur caused by camera shake, especially when shooting handheld at telephoto focal lengths or in dim indoor lighting. In the Anti Motion Blur and Handheld Twilight modes this technology makes it easier than ever to shoot clear, blur-free, low-noise images at night, indoors, or in any conditions that would otherwise be a challenge due to low light conditions, without having to boost sensitivity.

Dust and Moisture Resistant Design
Critical areas of the lens exterior feature dust and moisture resistant seals that help to ensure professional reliability even in tough environmental conditions.
