ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF

The versatile lens for a new era

Taking advantage of the exciting possibilities of Sony3 mirrorless cameras, ZEISS Batis lenses are designed specifically to unleash the creative potential of full-frame sensors. If you are looking for E-mount lenses to give perfect image quality and which are robust enough to resist dust and spray water and offer not only super-fast, but quiet autofocus, then these lenses will deliver.

Thanks to its close focusing distance of just 24 centimeters (9.4 inches) the ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF (Close Focus) and its angle of view that is a cross between a wide angle and standard focal length, is ideal for a whole host of applications. The new optical design was calculated on the basis of our tried-and-true Distagon format and lays the foundation for the exceptional imaging performance that this fixed focal length delivers. The high speed of f/2 offers creative design possibilities by virtue of cut-out objects, making this lens one no photographer should be without. The legendary ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating, combined with more than 125 years of experience in lens development and the latest technologies, ensure that every moment captured with a ZEISS Batis lens providses that exceptional ZEISS look.

Close Focus (CF): Free Software Update

To ensure exceptional image quality at close range, the lens automatically stops down when it’s a short distance from the object. A software update is now available and it allows photographers to work within a larger focus range with a wide-open aperture. This update means the ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF will only automatically stop down at preset values between f/2 and f/2.5 at close range and at a focus distance of between 24 and 65 centimeters – in extreme cases (close focusing distance) to max. f/2.8. With a preset aperture value of f/2.8 and above, the aperture will remain unchanged across the entire focus range.

Also, the update will enhance the focus accuracy when using the camera’s Eye AF function. You can download the free update here and easily run it on the lens via your Sony camera.

Features

Versatile full-frame lens
The powerful lens for the mirrorless full-frame system of Sony fulfills the highest requirements. Despite its compact design, the image meets the expectations of professional photographers.
Excellent resolution and high contrast
Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions. However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows. This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded. To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light.
Robust and weatherproof metal construction
Thanks to features that are designed to keep out dust and spray water, the lens is perfectly suited for critical outdoor conditions. It is also designed for many years of intensive use.
Innovative OLED display
For the first time, you can accurately read the focus distance and depth of field simply and intuitively on the OLED display on the lens. Especially in poor light conditions â?? excellent readability is always guaranteed.
Smooth and reliable autofocus
The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.
Close Focus function (CF)
The Close Focus function allows you to focus sharply on objects at extremely close range – the closest focusing distance, i.e. the minimum distance between the object and camera sensor, is only 24 centimeters. To ensure exceptional image quality at close range, the lens automatically stops down when it’s a short distance from the object. This ensures the ZEISS lens delivers the high contrast and resolution across the entire focus range that users have come to expect.
