Lens Description

The Zeiss Batis 85mm F/1.8 is a short telephoto prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This ultra-bright prime has a 85mm focal-length. An optical Image Stabilization System built into this lens compensates for camera shake. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.

This prime can focus down to 80cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.12X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Zeiss to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Sony E. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Sony E mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors.
