The Carl Zeiss Batis 18mm T* f/2.8 is a super wide-angle autofocus prime lens that with a Distagon optical design with floating glass elements, it can be used to capture remarkable wide perspective images. The high end lens produces ultra-sharp results from the centre right into the corners making it perfect for detail rich subjects found in landscape, architectural and astronomical photography. With a unique OLED display highlighting the focus distance and depth of field, focusing parameters can be easily read and set in low light conditions.
Wide angle Lens for Full Frame Mirrorless Cameras
With a wide 99° angle of view the Carl Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 is designed specifically for full frame mirrorless cameras. The super wide-angle abilities can capture creative shots with a unique perspective. When the lens is used with APS-C size sensors like the Sony A6300 or A6500 it has a focal length equivalent to 27mm and a 66° angle of view.
Distagon Optics with 11 Elements in 10 Groups
Zeiss’s Distagon design revolutionised wide angle lens optics by minimising spherical aberrations and vignetting even when shooting at wide open apertures. With a construction that uses aspherical elements, special elements with anomalous partial dispersion and a floating element design the lens uses 11 sophisticated elements arranged in 10 groups to deliver optimised resolution and sharpness.
A first for modern lenses, the Batis 18mm features an OLED display built into the barrel that displays focus distance and depth of field depending on the type of sensor being used. The OLED design of the display means it can be read in even the darkest lighting conditions.
Aperture Range from f/2.8 to f/22
With a bright aperture of f/2.8 the lens is well suited for low-light conditions like astrophotography and low light street shooting when you need as much light as you can get. The aperture range extends to f/22 making it a versatile lens, ideal for landscape and other styles of photography that requires a deep depth-of-field.
Smooth and Quiet Autofocus
The lens features a highly accurate autofocus with linear motors incorporated into the lens that provide smooth and quiet operation. For those who prefer more comprehensive control the lens has a rubber grip for manual focus adjustment.
To ensure clean imagery with minimised flaring the lens has anti-reflective coatings on the lens optics that allow the lens to capture shots with rich contrast and high clarity.
Dust and Weather Proof Build
The Zeiss Batis 18 mm T* f/2.8 lens is built for professional performance with weather sealing that offers protection from weather and dust, allowing you to use the lens in more extreme conditions. The build quality of the lens ensure that is robust enough to stand the test of time, while at the same time being portable and lightweight enough to be an integral addition to your kit.
