Product information

Combining a versatile 55mm focal length with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, this prime lens produces stunning portraits, nature studies and more. High performance ZEISS optics ensure outstanding resolution and contrast, while a dust and water resistant design gives you peace of mind when shooting outdoors.

9 blade aperture
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Less distortion
To optimise performance, aspherical lens elements maintain high contrast (even with the aperture wide open) and minimise distortion and flatness of the image plane.

Internal focus
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.

Dust & moisture resistant
The sealed design makes this lens a reliable companion to street and journalistic photography.
