Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in available-light conditions and also contributes a relatively smaller, lighter form factor.
Planar optical design affords high sharpness and consistent performance throughout the focusing range to suit photographing at a wide range of imaging scales.
The optical design utilizes two anomalous partial dispersion elements to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and color fidelity.
Two aspherical elements control distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and more accurate rendering.
ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections and provide greater contrast and color fidelity.
Floating elements system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range.
DC autofocus motor delivers quick and quiet focusing performance to suit both stills and video shooting applications.

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.

question

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.

question

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.

question

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.

question

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
This is an excellent lens for taking extremely close-up (macro) shots. It is an excellent lens for portraits. The image quality is top-notch, as you would expect from Zeiss, even if it's made under license in Japan and not in Germany. However, it is for APS-C so for a full-frame system like the A7 it is not appropriate and would not cover your sensor area. That said, minimum focusing distance is just a few centimeters (probably about 2 to 3 ). BUT anyway... if audible noise is your concern and you're looking for a video solution, FORGET IT! I own this lens and it is totally unusable for video unless you are not taking audio at the same time. It tends to focus-hunt and the mechanism is very loud (as in obnoxious). I do not regret purchasing it, but I would if there was a new version with a silent motor and weather/dust sealing. Having to put cling-wrap on a thousand dollars worth of lens so that I can get close to my subject in the moist forest undergrowth or in a dusty area sometimes feels more than just a little bit ridiculous. If you want a great 50mm for full frame and if you don't care about manual focus-only, look at the Voigtlander + close focus adapter. It's very nice, smaller, better finished , and will cost (with the adapter) about the same, but no auto-focus. But with an A7, that's easy to get around.
