ZEISS Optical Design

Based on the ZEISS Sonnar optical concept, this lens uses a design with seven elements in five groups that helps achieve the large maximum aperture of f/1.8 while simultaneously reducing flare and improving contrast.

Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture allows users to create images with shallow depth of field and work in low-light conditions with relative ease.

Three aspherical elements, including two double-sided, are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.

ZEISS T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.

A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Autofocus and Design

Linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enable accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.

Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

Carl Zeiss Optics

55mm Focal Length

The 55mm focal length provides a natural perspective and a versatile field of view, making it ideal for capturing stunning portrait shots. It allows you to frame your subjects comfortably while maintaining an appropriate distance for flattering compositions.

Wide Aperture

High-Quality Build

Versatility Beyond Portraits

While primarily intended for portraits, the 55mm focal length can also be used for various other photography genres, such as street photography, documentary photography, or capturing detailed close-ups.
