Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF FE Lens now Available for Pre-order

By on

Designed for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras, the new  lens is now available for pre-order.

The ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF “bridges the gap” between the ZEISS Batis 2/25 and ZEISS Batis 1.8/85 and falls between the standard 35 and 50 mm lenses.

The lens is weather-sealed, making it suitable for use in a variety of conditions and has a metal construction. CF is called for Close Focus, and offers focus as close as 24cm with 1:3.3 image scale.This is much closer than other prime lenses. As a Batis lens it also has an OLED display for DOF information.

The price of the new ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF is 1.299 US$ at B&HAdorama. This is the fifth lens in the series. Check out all the Batis lenses at major stores for availability (B&H Photo Video | Adorama | Amazon). Shipping is scheduled to start on November 15, 2018.
