This ZEISS 85mm Batis f/1.8 Prime - E Mount telephoto lens features an f/1.8 max. aperture, allowing very shallow depths of field to be used, creatively. Optical image stabilization allows for successful handheld shooting, even in poor light conditions. With a focal length of 85mm, this lens is ideal for portrait, event, and wedding photography.

ZEISS Batis autofocus lenses were specially developed for mirrorless full-frame system cameras from Sony. Such SLR cameras had a mirror box, requiring a long back focal distance for short focal lengths (the distance between the back lens element and the film plane must be considerably longer than the focal length). The Distagon lenses (retrofocus design) are also ideal for mirrorless system cameras thanks to their optimized ray path (enabling excellent image performance with large image angles for digital camera systems without mirrors).

ZEISS Batis lenses are fully compatible with all Sony E Mount cameras.
