Full Frame prime lens for night and day

Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Standard Prime (SEL55F18Z)

Combining a versatile 55mm focal length with a bright F1.8 maximum aperture, this prime lens produces stunning portraits, nature studies and more. High perfomance ZEISS optics ensure outstanding resolution and contrast, while a dust and water resistant design gives you peace of mind when shooting outdoors.

Coupled with a Full Frame E-mount camera from Sony, this lens delivers big camera performance in a remarkably compact, easy-to-handle package.

Crafted by ZEISS

Founded in 1846, ZEISS AG is a legend in the field of camera optics. Their lenses are renowned for exceptional clarity, brightness, resolution and contrast. This one features the acclaimed ZEISS T* coating, which subdues internal reflections to minimise flare and ghosting.

Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Refined optical performance

To optimise performance, aspherical lens elements maintain high contrast (even with the aperture wide open) and minimise distortion and flatness of the image plane.

Fast, agile focusing

An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
