ZEISS Loxia Lenses

The perfect companion for documentaries and high-quality reports.

Light and inconspicuous – the ZEISS Loxia Lenses are optimally suited to video recordings: their compact size enables the cameraman to work unobtrusively from various angles and thus avoid disrupting the scenery. This makes them the perfect companion for documentaries and high-quality reports.

The ZEISS Loxia lenses are small, robust and made of metal. Nevertheless, they offer exceptional image quality. The focus ring has a rotation angle of 180°, which enables fine focusing on the subject. A harmonious bokeh and the full-frame coverage are the ideal complements to the ZEISS Loxia lenses.

  • High quality images thanks to proven optical design
  • Automatic activation of the magnification function when turning
    the focus ring
  • Optional switchable aperture lock, allowing for smooth adjustment
    in video mode
  • Consistent 180° focus ring rotation for all lenses in the series

    Optimized for high-res sensors

    ZEISS Loxia Lenses

    The lenses offer a high resolution across the entire image field and — especially at the maximal aperture opening of f/2 — a harmonious bokeh in the background. ZEISS Loxia lenses are suitable for digital Sony Alpha cameras and have been optimized for film and sensors up to full 35 mm format (24 x 36 mm).

    Ideal for videography

    ZEISS Loxia Lenses

    Thanks to the iris de-click feature and super-smooth manual focusing are the perfect tool for demanding videographers. The completely new feature of the Loxia lens is that you can ‘declick’ the aperture’s locking mechanism using a tool (supplied) and an adjustment screw on the bayonet surface. This means that for video applications, you can smoothly eliminate any unwanted differences in brightness as you pan the camera.

    While the overall length of the different Loxia lenses might vary, the front diameter is consistent for all three focal lengths in the family. This results in a small, handy system solution ideal for documentary work, events or any shooting situation where the camera should not be the center of attention.

    Using autofocus lenses for a video shoot: that's not easy. But Nino Leitner from Cinema5D met the challenge and decided to use the new ZEISS Batis lenses as well as Loxia and a couple of ZEISS ZE primes for shooting a music video.
    Read his thoughts on shooting on a budget and a very tight schedule, and get an interesting behind the scenes impression of a music video production. And of course watch the final result: "Drift", by Those Goddamn Hippies, directed by Nicola von Leffern.
