Product Description

Product Description

This is the first Carl Zeiss lens to be released in the Sony E-mount lineup, employing the legendary “Sonnar” optical design for standout image dimensionality and presence. A spherical lenses located on either side of the aperture effectively compensate for distortion, while an ED element suppresses chromatic aberration. The overall result is excellent corner-to-corner sharpness even with the aperture wide open, for impressive overall resolution. This high-performance Carl Zeiss wide-angle prime lens delivers superior corner-to-corner sharpness even at the maximum F1.8 aperture. It also focuses as close as 16cm providing an unusual combination of close focus and wide-angle perspective. The 24mm focal length is an excellent choice for general shooting. When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result. As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. Super ED glass provides enhanced compensation for chromatic aberration. Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped “aspherical” elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight. Advanced Aspherical (AA) elements are an evolved variant, featuring an extremely high thickness ratio between the center and periphery. AA elements are exceedingly difficult to produce, relying on the most advanced molding technology to consistently and precisely achieve the required shape and surface accuracy, resulting in significantly improved image accuracy and quality. Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss - and this superb lens features the Carl Zeiss T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces. The T* coating contributes to outstanding image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. Not simply applied to any lens - the T* symbol only appears on multi-element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path, therefore guaranteeing the highest quality. Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you’re using a polarizing filter. 2011 Sony Electronics All rights reserved.

Sonnar T* E 24mm F1.8 ZA Wide-Angle Prime Lens

This high-performance Carl Zeiss wide-angle prime lens delivers superior corner-to-corner sharpness even at the maximum F1.8 aperture. It also focuses as close as 16cm providing an unusual combination of close focus and wide-angle perspective. The 24mm focal length is an excellent choice for general shooting.

Technology

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass

As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. Super ED glass provides enhanced compensation for chromatic aberration.

Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best prime lens for a6xxx!
    Reviewed in the United States on January 6, 2019
    Just got this lens as an upgrade from the standard kit 18-50mm on my a6000, and so far, I am extremely impressed. I got this as a good all-around prime lens that i can also take seamless quiet video with. The goal is for this lens to live on the camera 90% of the time. The 24mm focal length is perfect for this purpose, and is wide enough to take selfie videos for adventure videography, while also taking great stills.

    The good:
    +I am absolutely loving the fast aperture of f1.8, and am finding it a massive upgrade over the kit lens that maxed out at f3.5. This has given me a mouth-wateringly shallow depth of field, with decent bokeh fore and aft(more on that later), and great low-light capabilities. I’m really looking forward to trying my hand at some astrophotography with this lens.
    +Manual and auto focus are sharp, accurate, and lightning fast.
    +Did I mention that this lense is sharp? Seriously, be careful not to cut yourself. I also haven’t noticed any chromatic aberration, or distortion, but I’ve only had it a couple of days, so it remains to be seen. The Zeiss coatings and optics are well worth the money.
    +This lense is in Zeiss’s Sonnar range, which is the lighter weight line of lenses. The Zeiss coatings and optics are well worth the money.This makes for a perfectly balanced setup with an a6xxx series, making carrying and shooting feel comfortable. For me, this is a big benefit. The whole point of an aps-c mirrorless setup, in my eyes, is to have a compact, professional kit that you can feasibly carry wherever you go. Sure, a big DSLR might get a better shot, but not if it’s at home or in the car. This Sony camera and Zeiss lens combo is a quick, light setup, and that, often as not, is what gets the shot.

    The bad(take that word with a grain of salt though):
    -This lens has 7 flat aperature blades, which is fine, but isn’t going to get the perfectly round bokeh that some people want. I personally am still impressed with it, but that’s just me. My next lens will be a macro with 9 to 11 aperature blades
    -There is no OSS in this lens, so a6000 owners and below need to have a steady hand and a faster shutter speed. Personally, I’ve got an a6500 coming in the mail as we speak, but even with the a6000, I’ve gotten great, sharp photos, with little motion blur thanks to how fast this lens is.
    -This is a Prime lens, so there is no zoom. Most of you should know this, and to me its an advantage due to superior optics, but just be aware that you are stuck at 24mm.
