The Sony-Zeiss FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Sonnar E-Mount Lens

The Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Sonnar is a full-frame E-mount lens designed for the Sony a7-series cameras. Key features include:

Full Frame E-mount. As a part of the FE line of lenses, the FE 55mm f/1.8 is designed to cover the full-frame sensor of the Sony a7-series cameras. Since it is an E-mount lens, it’s also fully compatible with APS-C NEX cameras.

Normal Range. When used on a full-frame camera, it provides a normal-range focal length that’s great for street, portrait, and general-purpose photography. With an APS-C sensor camera, you’ll have a short telephoto length of about 83mm that’s perfect for portraiture. The fast f/1.8 aperture is great for low-light shooting and subject-background isolation.

Internal Focusing. Enables the lens to remain the same physical size during focusing. This also allows improved filter use as the front element doesn’t rotate.

Advanced Optics. The FE 55mm f/1.8 features three aspherical elements that reduce spherical aberrations and help to produce high image sharpness and clarity. Additionally, the Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating eliminates lens flare and ghosting while providing the famous high micro-contrast Zeiss look. Its nine-blade aperture diaphragm gives images smooth out-of-focus areas when a shallow depth-of-field is desired.

High Build Quality. Like the Sony a7-series cameras, the FE 55mm offers dust- and moisture-resistant sealing for use in less than ideal conditions. The all-metal barrel gives the lens a solid feel, with a smooth, responsive manual-focus ring.
