Offering a normal field of view with an impressively compact design, the ZEISS Loxia 50mm f/2 is a flexible prime for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, well-suited for a range of subjects from portraits to landscapes. Utilizing a classic symmetrical Planar optical design, this lens is capable of achieving well-corrected, sharp imagery with controlled aberrations and distortions. An enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to significantly reduce ghosting and flaring for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in difficult lighting conditions.
Loxia-series lenses are distinguished by their manual focus operation along with a manual aperture ring that can be de-clicked for silent operation; making them especially suitable for filmmaking applications. Loxia lenses are also characterized by their compact form factor and all-metal lens barrel, which incorporates engraved focusing and depth of field scales, for fine-tuned control. Additionally, the lens body sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design to permit its use in trying environments.
