Batis 18mm f/2.8
Wide angle prime lens for Sony E Mount
The Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 is a wide-angle prime lens designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however it can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 27mm equivalent focal length. With a maximum aperture of f/2.8 it is well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions. It features an innovative OLED display that highlights the focus distance and depth of field range for quickly recognizing your focusing parameters even in low-light conditions, and linear motors ensure autofocus is smooth, fast, and quiet. Alternatively, a tactile rubberized ring is available for precise manual focus.
The lens uses a Distagon concept with a floating elements design to maintain consistent sharpness and illumination throughout the focusing range, and a series of aspherical and special glass elements help to control both chromatic and spherical aberrations. A Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to individual elements in order to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and true colour.
This is housed inside a dust and moisture-sealed design, allowing you to keep shooting no matter the weather. With its extremely wide 99° angle of view, the Batis 18mm f/2.8 is an excellent choice when photographing interiors, architecture or astrophotography.
