Extra speed and wide-angle appeal
This compact, lightweight 24mm ZEISS Sonnar design features an F1.8 maximum aperture plus outstanding frame-wide sharpness and contrast. It can also produce beautifully smooth “bokeh” when required. This lens is an outstanding choice for a wide range of subjects, from landscapes to low-light indoor shots and even 1:4 close-ups.
Get close for impressive detail and impact
An advanced optical design ensures that maximum performance is achieved right down to 1:4 macro focusing distances, making it possible to shoot small subjects and details with dramatic clarity and a wide-angle perspective. The lens’s large F1.8 maximum aperture is an advantage for close-ups too.
Smooth and quiet for quality movies
Smooth, quiet operation is essential for moviemaking. An internal drive motor that achieves fluent, low-noise focus operation makes this lens a good choice for movies as well as stills, keeping imagery solid and noise out of the soundtrack.
Refined exterior finish and feel
The black-finished aluminium alloy exterior of this lens affords an appearance that is eminently suitable for the distinguished ZEISS name, and of course it blends beautifully with the graceful design of E-mount bodies. The engraved focus ring offers sophisticated appearance as well as superior grip and operating feel.
Outstanding colour and contrast
The ZEISS T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
