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.
The optical elements of ZEISS lenses feature T*® anti-reflective coating on all surfaces and an optical design that guarantees images of superior brilliance at all times, even in unfavourable lighting conditions. We apply the anti-reflective coating to the lens surfaces by the vapour deposition of extremely thin, transparent layers on the glass. In this process, special substances are vaporized with extremely high energy in a high-vacuum environment and are subsequently deposited on the glass surfaces, one after another, as layers with precisely controlled thicknesses to achieve the desired reduction of reflective properties. The first coating techniques were employed by ZEISS as long ago as in the 1930s.
The design of the autofocus system demands an extremely precise movement of certain lens elements. As the mass of the elements or groups to be moved within the optical system differs, various motor types may be installed. The focusing system of the Touit lenses is designed to guarantee robust and smooth autofocusing without any need for compromises or limitations in their optical design.
Information: To reach the best compatibility on Sony NEX Cameras (AF in video mode) we highly recommend to use the latest Sony NEX firmware.
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.
