A 55mm lens is roughly equal to the perspective of the human eye. Combine this with its high speed, and the Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 will allow you to capture spontaneous photographs as they unfold before your eyes. Also perfect for portraits, this lens is perfectly matched to Sony alpha E-mount full-frame bodies and will consistently offer superlative images full of contrast in any lighting situations. Produce beautiful bokeh or extend your depth of field by stopping down – it is all about portraying the world the way you want to see it.

ZEISS lenses are famous for their extraordinary image quality. Even with challenging subjects, perspective, color and light are optimally rendered – throughout the entire 35 mm image field. For this reason, we place great emphasis on particularly high image quality, e.g. low distortion and outstanding stray light reduction for rich colors.
Compact yet extremely capable – ZEISS worked in close collaboration with Sony to create a high-precision lens, containing aspherical lenses as well as extra-low dispersion glass to ensure a portable size, while delivering exquisite image quality at the same time.
A high speed lens gives you a huge amount of freedom in taking your photographs, as you can either make the most of available light, not having to worry about disturbing a moment with a flash, or create spectacular effects with a shallow depth of field or harmonious bokeh.
Take advantage of all the benefits of full frame photography with a compact lens that is as versatile as it is capable. Compared to an equivalent full frame SLR lens, it is light and small enough not to weigh you down. And it is also suitable for use on APS-C size camera bodies, but please note the crop factor when considering the angle of view.
