Zeiss Loxia range of lenses


Classic photograph­y meets modern technology with Zeiss’ Loxia range of compact lenses, specifical­ly designed for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. Together, they bring together the best of both worlds — the creative possibilit­ies only available with manual focus, and the benefits of mirrorless full-frame photograph­y.

With functional­ity perfectly pitched to Sony’s many strengths in the mirrorless game, the lenses are fully compatible, transmitti­ng data to the respective body in order to trigger viewfinder magnificat­ion when required during manual focusing. As manual focus only, the range features a 180-degree focus ring rotation from closest focus to infinity. Plus, as a vital addition for filmmakers, each of the models allow users to deactivate the ‘clock’ of the aperture ring, making these lenses suitable for videograph­y, as well as stills.

A 35mm and 50mm focal length are each based on Zeiss’ successful ZM models, with the 21mm newly joining the mix. The 35mm f/2 comprises an almost symmetric lens design made up of nine elements in six groups, lending itself to minimal distortion. The 50mm f/2 — a flexible all-rounder — offers precision sharpness via its smooth-as-silk manual focusing mechanism. And, despite its compact size, the 21mm f/2.8 offers a super-wide-angle 91-degree field of view, with outstandin­g image performanc­e across the entire full-frame field.

Compact, light and extremely flexible, the Loxia range is the ideal companion for photograph­ic and filmic exploratio­n.
