ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M Macro Lens for Sony E
Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
  • 75mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Two Aspherical Elements
A clever short telephoto, the Sony E-mount ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M is a 75mm-equivalent prime suitable for both portraiture as well as close-up shooting. As a macro lens, it features a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification ratio and a minimum focusing distance of 5.9" for working with nearby subjects. Its advanced Planar optical design includes two aspherical elements and two low dispersion elements, which help to control a variety of aberrations, distortion, and color fringing in order to produce sharp, well-corrected imagery. A floating elements system is used, too, to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range. Individual elements also receive a ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, suiting both photo and video use, this lens incorporates a DC autofocus motor to deliver especially fast, quiet, and precise focusing performance.

Does the lens you are selling have the latest software so it does not have to be sent back Zeiss to be updated?
Asked by: Neil S.
As far as we know yes it does come with the latest firmware. Unfortunately we do not have access to our inventory to inspect the lens prior to shipping them out.

The Zeiss Has more elements. It also is a macro lens so you can move in closer if you want to to make a tight portrait.

why I have sound noise when using manual focus in video mode ? Can someone help me. Thank you
Asked by: Cidoiu V.
This is one of the (several) disappointments about this otherwise excellent lens: manual focus is not truly manual , it is fly-by-wire in the sense that turning the focus ring does not transmit movement directly to the internal parts, instead, this triggers the motor and the motor imparts movement internally. This is why focusing by hand still makes the noise: you're hearing that robust motor mentioned in the other reply because it's being switched on to adjust focus. This lens is not usable for video unless you're not capturing audio at the same time. Don't even try it, you'll just end up pulling your hair out in post... To be fair, Zeiss should put that in bold letters at the top of the product description.

I'm looking for a macro lens for my Nex-6.Is there a difference between a true Macro lens, and this lens, which offers 1:1 Macro capability? Is there anything that the Sony 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens will do that this lens will not?(For example, I read somewhere that a true macro will have a flat focus plane, rather than a curved focus plane. Is the focus plane of this lens flat or curved?)
Asked by: Jeff S.
I am shooting a NEX-6 as well. I believe that the Zeiss 50mm is a true macro lens that can also be use for portraits. I don't think there is anything that the Sony 30mm Macro can do that his lens won't (I own both lenses), but I can say that this lens can focus closer and get better images than the Sony 30mm. I can't say that the focus plane of this lens is flat or curved.

How would this be on a Sony a7s? I have a Sony 50mm macro A mount, but have to use an adapter, and it is noisy focusing.Also what is the close-focus distance?
Asked by: Anonymous
The ZEISS Touit 2.8/50M is designed for APS-C sensors, but can be used successfully on the full frame A7 cameras. The camera will automatically crop the image, providing an angle of view equivalent to a 75mm lens. The close focus specs on the lens are located on the ZEISS website and is 6.02 from the image plane. <a href= target= _blank ></a>
