Features of the Sony SEL 55mm F1.8 FE Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

Fast F1.8 for broad creative control

Renowned ZEISS contrast and resolution bring out the best in full frame image sensors such as those in the Sony α7 series, and a large F1.8 maximum aperture can produce beautiful full-frame background bokeh. You can also stop down for extended depth-of-field. A bright lens like the Sony SEL 55mm F1.8 FE Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* is also an advantage when shooting in low light.

Smooth bokeh enhances depth and dimension

A 9-blade circular aperture works with the Sony SEL 55mm F1.8 FE Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* lens’s state-of-the-art optics to create beautifully smooth bokeh in out-of-focus background areas when desired, with natural-looking highlights that won’t distract from the important foreground subject and details.

Sony and ZEISS team up for better images

Advanced technology from ZEISS and Sony combines in a precision optical design with three aspherical elements, two double-sided, that effectively reduce all forms of aberration while achieving outstanding image-wide sharpness and contrast. The ZEISS T* coating suppresses internal reflections, for sublime contrast from highlights to deep blacks.

Shoot with confidence anywhere

Some of the most exciting images are captured in challenging environments. A dust and moisture resistant design means that the Sony SEL 55mm F1.8 FE Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* lens will continue to perform reliably in moderately wet or dusty conditions, so you can shoot with confidence wherever those great shots are found.

Outstanding colour and contrast

The ZEISS T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
