The sophisticated Sonnar optical design enables high resolution and sharpness with optimized low-light shooting capabilities. A Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour fidelity.

Also, a dust and moisture-resistant construction ensures this lens' use in tough environmental conditions. This prime normal-length lens features a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to benefit working in low-light conditions and for greater control over the plane of focus. Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating reduces lens flare and ghosting for contrast-rich imagery with sustained color neutrality. Dust- and moisture resistant design enables ensured performance when working in inclement environmental conditions. Also, a Nine-blade circular diaphragm enables a smooth out-of-focus quality that is well-suited to shallow depth of field imagery.
