A strong performer in difficult lighting

In addition to a fundamentally high-performance optical design, extensive application of the renowned ZEISS T* coating not only minimizes flare and ghosting for natural colour reproduction, but is instrumental in achieving impressive contrast and accurate reproduction of subtle gradations as well.

Beautiful bokeh to back your subject

ZEISS quality extends from exceptional clarity to gorgeous background bokeh that can make in-focus subjects really stand out. A 7-blade circular aperture makes it possible to produce beautifully smooth defocusing effects with natural highlights when desired.
