ZEISS Loxia 2.4/85 Lens - Sony E-Mount

Zeiss SKU: 2162-636 | Helix SKU: ZS2162636

Portable, inconspicuous, powerful – fitting ways to describe the ZEISS Loxia 2.4/85 telephoto lens. The completely reworked optical design has been specially developed using seven lens elements for the high-resolution, full-frame sensors of the mirrorless Sony α series. The Loxia 2.4/85 supplements the focal lengths of the ZEISS Loxia product family in the short telephoto lens segment.

Despite its compactness the handy ZEISS Loxia® 2.4/85, a moderate telephoto lens offers outstanding image performance – across the entire image field of a full-frame sensor. Be it for a portrait or a street or landscape shot, this inconspicuous lens is great for helping you master these photographic disciplines.

ZEISS Loxia lenses were specifically designed for Sony α7 cameras. This means that they can make the most of the mirrorless, full frame system, while giving you all the creative possibilities of ‚classic’ photography with manual focus at the same time.

And that’s not all: ZEISS Loxia lenses also provide everything you need to shoot high quality video, such as the unique DeClick feature for smooth adjustment of the aperture, for example.

A lens with relatively few glass-air surfaces, it was developed by Dr. Ludwig Bertele at ZEISS in 1930. At the time it was one of the fastest high-speed lenses for 35 mm photography, with apertures as large as 1:1.5 and high contrast thanks to effective stray light reduction. Its high speed and high contrast helped give the lens its name, which is derived from the word “sun,” the symbol of maximum brightness. You continue to find the aforementioned benefits with modern lenses in the normal and telephoto ranges whose optical design is based on this basic type.
