The ZEISS Loxia 85mm f/2.4 Sonnar Lens for Sony E Mount features a reworked optical design that has been specially developed using seven lens elements for the high-resolution, full-frame sensors of the mirrorless Sony α series. 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. The Loxia 2.4/85 supplements the focal lengths of the ZEISS Loxia product family in the short telephoto lens segment.

Despite its compact form factor, the ZEISS Loxia 2.4/85 is a moderate telephoto lens that offers outstanding image performance across the entire image field of a full-frame sensor, equally adept at capturing portrait or landscape. 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.

The Loxia family features a lens design with relatively few glass-to-air surfaces. The Sonnar design was invented by Dr. Ludwig Bertele at ZEISS in 1930 to provide the fastest lenses of that day for 35 mm photography offering speeds up to f/1.5 and well controlled veiling glare. This is where the name comes from, containing the German word for sun, ’Sonne’, the symbol of utmost brightness.

DeClick Feature

This Loxia lens features the DeClick option where you can declick the aperture’s locking mechanism using a supplied tool and an adjustment screw on the bayonet surface. For video applications, you can now eliminate unwanted differences in brightness as you pan the camera.

Manual Focus

An ergonomic design ensures that your manipulation of this Loxia lens will produce a controlled result. These lenses include a large rotation angle to enable precise focusing. Your focus changes will be reflected inside the viewfinder. With a precise engraving in both meters and feet, the depth of focus scale provides added support to your manual focusing.

Virtually Distortion-Free Optics

ZEISS compensates for distortion through the Loxia’s optical design. New composition possibilities open up for strategic perspectives and angles. The design avoids the common distortion of straight lines not within the image center so you won’t obtain a curved shape.

Full-Metal Casing

This Loxia 85mm lens features a precision-engineered, full-metal casing with a grippy focus and aperture rings also made of metal. A special sealing ring on the bayonet protects the interface between the camera and the lens. The Loxia lenses were designed for durability to support decades of hard use.
