Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm f/2.8 is one of four Sonnar telephoto lenses that Zeiss used to manufacture in the C/Y mount (the other three lenses being 85mm, 100mm and 180mm).

The optical construction of the lens consists of 5 elements in 4 groups. The build quality of the lens is pretty solid - the lens mount and both barrel cams are metal. So is the built-in slide-type metal lens hood that could be extended from the front of the barrel to reduce amount of stray light hitting the front glass element. Both aperture and focus rings are fully rubberized. The inner lens cam extends by a few centimetres when focusing towards close up. Both inner lens cam and the built-in lens hood wobble a little bit inside the lens, slightly diminishing the overall feel of the lens.

The minimum focusing distance of the lens is 1.6m (5.5ft) and the minimum aperture is f/22.
