The 85mm focal length, f/1.4 maximum aperture and precision Carl Zeiss T* coated Planar optics all add up to superlative performance and handling for portraiture or medium-telephoto landscapes. The delicate, nuanced "drawing" of the Planar design makes it possible to capture subtleties of light and texture that can give images extraordinary depth and presence.
In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system of the Sony α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this superb Carl Zeiss® lens achieves pinpoint sharpness -- even working with hand-held camera by available light.
For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing even in continuous advance mode -- and focus lock can also be set on the spot-focus center frame area.
Smooth, visually pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds give portraits and close-ups an extra dimension of beauty.
Precision optical design and advanced T coatings help to reduce flare and increase contrast.
In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- and in manual focusing, you’ll have a solid, hands-on feel.
