Portable, discreet, powerful - proper ways to describe the telephoto ZEISS Loxia 2.4 / 85. The fully retouched optical design has been specifically developed with seven lens elements to fit the high-resolution full-frame sensors of the Sony α series without mirror. The Loxia 2.4 / 85 completes the focal lengths of the ZEISS Loxia short-throw product line.
Despite its compact size, the practical and modest ZEISS Loxia 2.4 / 85 telephoto lens offers outstanding image quality - over the entire image field of a full-frame sensor. Whether it's a portrait, a street or a landscape, this discreet lens is perfect for a good mastery of these photographic areas.
ZEISS Loxia lenses have been developed specifically for Sony α7 series cameras. That means: you're holding in your hand the benefits of a modern, mirror-free, full-format camera combined with the creative possibilities of "classic" photography with manual focus.
In addition, ZEISS Loxia lenses offer everything necessary to record video in the highest quality - eg. the unique DeClick function for continuous adjustment of the diaphragm.
Loxia lenses feature an all-new feature that "clicks" the diaphragm snap mechanism by unlocking the locking screw on the bayonet surface using the tool provided. When making videos, the difference in brightness that occurs unexpectedly during the change of direction can be corrected continuously. This function can also be used with other video systems whose favorable dimensions allow an adaptation of these objectives.
Precise manual focus
Ordering a lens manually is like creating the image with your fingertips. Ergonomics plays a crucial role. ZEISS lenses offer a wide angle of rotation for precise sharpness adjustment. The changes appear immediately in the viewfinder. The high-end, play-free and easy-to-use focus mechanism lets you play intuitively with the level of sharpness. Accurate graduation in meters and feet as well as the depth-of-field scale is an additional aid in manual focusing.
Virtually distortion-free optics
Dramatic perspectives and a view from exceptional angles: ZEISS's objectives open up new creative possibilities. A distortion would hinder the composition because the straight lines, whose reproduction does not cross the center of the image, would be bent. Complex optical constructions correct this effect, which affects all focal lengths.
High-end metal frame
Perceptible quality and high durability enable ZEISS lenses to be used intensively for decades. The high-end metal finish frame, handy metal focus and diaphragm ring, rugged front bayonet and filter thread ensure an outstanding photographic experience. A special sealing ring on the bayonet protects the junction between the camera and the lens.
ZEISS Loxia lenses are suitable for use with Sony Alpha mirrorless E-mount cameras and have been optimized for full-size sensors up to 35mm (24mm x 36mm). With ZEISS Loxia lenses, the aperture is preset manually, enabling the DeClick function of the aperture ring. And as a result: the devices have the appropriate functions of automatic exposure control (A) and manual exposure control (M).
