ZEISS Batis 18mm f/2.8 Lens for Sony E
Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Seven Low Dispersion Elements
  • Four Aspherical Elements
Delivering an impressively wide field of view, the Sony E-mount Batis 18mm f/2.8 from ZEISS is an ultra-wide prime, well-suited to interior, architectural, landscape, and astrophotography applications. Within the Distagon optical design, this lens uses a series of aspherical and anomalous partial dispersion elements to greatly reduce color fringing, distortion, and other aberrations to realize sharp, clear, and color-accurate imagery. A floating elements system is also employed for consistent performance throughout the focusing range, and an enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for working in difficult lighting conditions.

The ZEISS Batis lenses are compatible with any camera using the Sony E mount system, including the Hasselblad Lunar. Since this camera uses an APS-C size sensor, you need to plan for a 1.5x crop factor.
