The 24mm focal length of this model provides a wide perspective on 35mm full-frame format cameras, and a closer-to-normal equivalent focal length of 36mm on APS-C format cameras. Photographers who value a single prime approach to general shooting will love this lens, as will those who appreciate the subtle but tangible quality advantage that a first-class Carl Zeiss prime lens provides.
Like other large-aperture Carl Zeiss® lens designs, this f2.0 lens is simply magnificent in its ability to capture brilliant high-resolution images in low-light conditions requiring fully open aperture.
These precision lens elements correct distortion for sharper, more visually accurate images.
Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss® -- and this superb lens features T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates the lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces.
Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used in Carl Zeiss® lenses to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
