Zeiss Batis 2/40CF
Batis lenses feature a lightweight construction along with fast autofocus and a close focusing distance. Zeiss Batis autofocus lenses complement mirrorless, full-frame sensor cameras from Sony. They are fully compatible with all E-mount cameras and offer protection against dust and weather.
The new Batis 2/40 CF T* lens has a 40mm fixed focal length, making it suitable for close-ups. Moreover, due to a close focusing distance of 9.4 inches, combined with a moderate wide-angle, the close focus lens (CF) works especially well for shooting varying landscapes. In addition, the lens’s high micro contrast and initial aperture of f/2 make it an option for capturing individual objects. The lens also features an OLED display that shows the distance and depth of field.
Zeiss is also highlighting its first generation ZX1 camera. A compact, mirrorless system camera, it employs a Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/2 lens and a full-frame 37.4 megapixel CMOS sensor. An intuitive user interface features a toolbar on it 4.3-inch multi-touch display. The point-and-shoot camera is a solution for street, landscape and travel photography.
Furthermore, its high-resolution OLED electronic viewfinder produces a high-quality live view. And the camera’s virtually silent leaf shutter assists in environments where discretion is needed, as well as silent street photography. In addition, photographers can edit photos with built-in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC and publish them online—all right from the camera.
