BEST CSC PRIME LENS

Zeiss Loxia Line

Designed for those whose passion is engagement in the picture-making process, ZEISS Loxia lens are manual focus and aperture setting lenses made specifically for Sony e-mount full-frame cameras. There are two current lenses in the line-up, both with a maximum aperture of f/2—a 35mm and a 50mm. The 35mm lens is based on a Biogon design and is constructed with nine elements in six groups and has a minimum focusing distance of 0.3 metres (slightly less than a foot). The 50mm is based on a Planar design and has six elements in four groups, with a similar close-focusing distance of 0.37 metres (1.2 feet). A “declickable” aperture setting (free range) can be used for video shooting. A large focus rotation angle of 180-degees allows for very precise focusing.
