Fans of Sony’s mirrorless full-frame cameras have a reason to smile: ZEISS has added a further telephoto lens to its ZEISS Batis lens family. The ZEISS Batis 135mm f2.8 is the first 135mm AF focal length for Sony’s A 7 system with E-mount. Like all lenses from the ZEISS Batis range, this new addition is equipped with fast and precise autofocus. To avoid shaking, which can occur very easily with tele lenses, an optical image stabiliser has also been incorporated into the design. ZEISS Batis 135mm f2.8 proves its worth particularly in portrait photography.
Compact, lightweight, top quality
ZEISS has continued to bring the design of the ZEISS Batis 135mm f2.8 into line with the needs of Sony photographers. According to Zeiss, it is important to have a comparably handy lens – in spite of the rather long focal length. They have made a conscious decision to strike a balance between compactness, weight and light intensity…and the results are stunning
Optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization gives you clear, steady images in poor light conditions. Combined with the camera's own OIS, it provides you the benefits of both systems. In addition, this feature also allows for perfect images without digital noise, as the ISO values do not have to be increased to compensate for poor light conditions.
Smooth and reliable autofocus
The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.
OLED display visualises depth of focus
Like all ZEISS Batis lenses, this latest addition features an OLED display that enables precise visualisation of the depth of field. This allows you to be sure that the image is in focus where it matters. The metal housing gives the lens its robust and durable character. Furthermore, the dust and dirt shield means photo shoots in poor weather are no longer an issue.
The image quality leaves nothing to be desired. Zeiss have put a lot of effort into the optical design and into correcting their lenses. For example, Zeiss have been experimenting with special types of glass in order to rule out as many kinds of image errors as possible. They have thus been able to ensure corrected chromatic aberration in the ZEISS Batis 135mm f2.8 so that it has virtually no image errors. 14 lenses have been built into 11 groups in the camera lens.
