Sony Zeiss E 24mm f/1.8 ZA Sonnar

Available Today

The Sony Zeiss E 24mm f/1.8 ZA Sonnar is designed for APS-C Sony E-mount still and video cameras. The Sony Zeiss lenses have always offered the highest quality possible for Sony A-mount cameras, and with the 24mm f1.8, this now extends to the E-mount mirrorless cameras. It gives users a 36mm equivalent lens and its fast f1.8 aperture allows for low-light shooting and, in combination with the 7-blade circular aperture, a very pleasing background blur.

The lens is based on the classic Carl Zeiss Sonnar lens design. It utilizes both aspherical and ED elements to optimize optical quality for corner sharpness and keep aberrations down. The lens body itself is made of aluminum alloy and features a very smooth manual focus ring. The silent autofocus motor works great for both still and video shooting, and the option to use Direct Manual Focus (DMF) for fine-tuning focus makes shooting with a shallow depth-of-field more accurate. It focuses to a very close 6.2", which allows for a very interesting 1:4 pseudo-macro effect.

Please Note: Does not offer full-frame sensor coverage.

If you’re wanting a high quality 35mm equivalent lens for an APS-C E-mount camera, look no further. It has a fast aperture for great subject/background isolation, which also makes it perfect for low light shooting.
