High-performance Carl Zeiss wide-angle prime with elegant black metal exterior
One ED glass element and two aspherical elements
Innovative optical design achieves outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness
Ideal for shooting stills or movies
Carl Zeiss quality really shows off the capabilities of the E-mount system, with
outstanding resolution and contrast that can add legendary Zeiss depth and
dimensionality to your images. This wide-angle prime lens delivers superior
corner-to-corner sharpness even at the maximum F1.8 maximum aperture,
with minimum distortion and coma. It also focuses as close as 16 centimeters,
providing an unusual combination of close focus and wide-angle perspective
for 1:4 macro photography. The 24mm focal length, equivalent to 36mm on
a 35mm format camera, is an excellent choice for general shooting. Many
photographers will be happy to leave this lens on their camera most of the
time, especially since its F1.8 maximum aperture facilitates handheld shooting
even in challenging low-light situations. Movie makers will love this lens too,
because smooth, low-noise autofocus and aperture operation mean they
can take advantage of its outstanding optical characteristics without worrying
about mechanical noise infiltrating the soundtrack.
