The Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Sony E Mount is a portrait-length, short telephoto lens featuring a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture for greater focus control and enhanced low-light shooting. It has eleven lens elements in eight groups and draws on the ZEISS Distagon optical design. Pairing the Sonnar concept with a floating elements design, this 85mm f/1.8 is also particularly adept at controlling aberrations throughout the focusing range, while a T* anti-reflective coating minimizes flare and ghosting for ensured color accuracy and heightened contrast. Rounding out the feature-set, this lens incorporates optical image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake when working with slower shutter speeds and a dust- and weather-sealed construction lends itself to shooting in less-than-ideal environments. It encourages the user to make creative use of depth of field which can often yield surprising results, particularly in close-up photography. It is ideal for architecture, landscape, and interior photography. Additionally, for working in inclement conditions, the lens also features a dust- and weather-sealed construction.

The ZEISS Batis Lenses are the first full-frame autofocus lenses for Sony's E-mount cameras to be exclusively developed and distributed by ZEISS. This new family of lenses is particularly suited for the use with Sony's alpha range of mirrorless full-frame system cameras. The Zeiss Batis lense makes optimal use of the camera sensors, capturing every last detail with impressive contrast and high resolution. As well as offering fast and reliable autofocus, the Batis lens also support manual focusing, allowing users to choose the best option for each individual situation. The sleek, modern design - with smooth surfaces reminiscent of the high-end ZEISS Otus lenses - emphasizes the superior quality of this new lens and gives the Batis lens an unmistakable look and feel.

For the demanding photographer, the cutting-edge OLED display showing the focus distance is a major highlight - an innovation that is currently unparalleled in the world of camera lenses. The electronic display is easy to read even in low light. It shows the distance between the camera system and the focal plane as well as the depth of field. ZEISS Batis lens is also furnished with dust and weather seals, allowing it to be used in even the harshest weather conditions. The fast, quiet AF drive with linear motors keeps the subject crisply in focus even when shooting in hectic situations. In addition, a handy, rubberized focus ring supports manual focusing, providing the user with full creative freedom when it comes to image composition. The ZEISS Batis lens has a 'floating elements' design which compensates for aberrations of the lens at different distance settings.

Features:
  • An ideal portrait-length lens, this short telephoto has been designed specifically for full-frame E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. It can also be used on APS-C-sized E-mount cameras where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
  • Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also offers extensive control over depth of field for selective focus applications.
  • Sonnar optical concept incorporates 11 glass elements within 8 groups and also employs a floating elements design to reduce aberrations and distortions throughout the focusing range.
  • 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.
  • Integrated OLED display on the top of the lens shows the distance of the focal plane from the camera as well as the depth of field range for quickly recognizing the parameters of focus in use, even when working in low-light conditions.
  • Optical image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
  • Linear motors benefit the autofocus performance of the lens and provide smooth, fast, and quiet operation. For manual focusing, a rubberized ring offers greater tactile control for precise placement of focus.
  • Dust and weather-sealed construction benefits using the lens in inclement shooting conditions.
