This is the third set of lens in the Zeiss’ Batis range designed for full-frame Sony E-Mount mirrorless cameras. It is ultra-wide at 18mm, and implements an OLED display that shows information such as focus distance and depth of field. Despite the size, it weights in at a relatively light at 330g. Hats off to the guys at Zeiss considering the barrel is predominantly a metal construction.
The extra wide-angle camera lens has 11 elements in ten groups with four being aspheric and seven made from special types of glass. The Floating Elements design allows high image performance in the focal plane, from the minimum object distance to infinity. The image quality is unparalleled as it is a set of Zeiss lens. Every professional or enthusiast will support this claim. It is fully dust and weather sealed, allowing it to be used in any weather condition. It is quite pricey at $2300, but for those who know, you’re paying for the best in the business.
