Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Review and Sample Images

The Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA lens is a prime, normal focal length lens featuring a very fast and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to support working in dimly-lit conditions and for greater control over focus for shallow depth of field imagery.

From the PhotographyBlog conclusion :

Offering fast and reliable auto-focusing, intuitive manual focusing and the usual Carl Zeiss levels of build quality that’s weather-tight too, this prime lens is a perfect partner to the flagship A7R camera, helping to extract bags of detail from its 36 megapixel full-frame sensor. Highly recommended if you’re about to invest in the fledgling 35mm full-frame E-mount system.

Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA lens is currently priced for $998 and available for pre-order. The lens will be shipping on December 22.
