Distagon T* FE 1,4/35 ZA

The master of light.

You will be impressed by the powerful optics of the Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA. Especially in difficult lighting situations, the wide-angle lens with aspheric lens elements and T* coating can really demonstrate all its strengths. This is what makes the full-frame lens for the Sony α series with E-mount so wonderfully suited for hand-held shooting, especially in poorly lit conditions. With nine aperture blades, you will achieve a great bokeh – ideal for street photography and portrait photos where not only the image, but also the immediate surroundings, tell a story.

  • Features

    Versatile aperture settings

    Ideal for every use, for both photography and professional video shooting. With the de-click feature for the aperture function, you will handle unexpected changes in brightness and difficult lighting conditions seamlessly – simply with a switch directly on the lens. Every pan shot will be successful. In addition, you can use the aperture ring of the lens to preset the aperture just as you would do with special video lenses. Here as well, you will love the diverse and especially precise focusing options of the lens – manual as well as automatic. 

    High-Speed Lens

    Impressive photographs captured in low light always begin with a fast lens for a system or SLR camera. Because, a fast, high-performance lens captures as much light as possible. And a lens with a large maximum aperture leads to the best results when shooting in unfavourable light.

    Robust and weatherproof metal construction

    Its metal barrel and bayonet as well as elaborate protection against dust and spray make the lens perfect for shooting in demanding outdoor conditions – and also guarantee its constant readiness for many years of intensive use.

    Smooth, silent AF operation

    Design of the autofocus system requires extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. While this is normally achieved via mechanical coupling from the camera body, ZA lenses feature a built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) focusing system for even more refined AF performance.

    ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating

    The optical elements of ZEISS lenses feature T*® anti-reflective coating on all surfaces and an optical design that guarantees images of superior brilliance at all times, even in unfavourable lighting conditions. We apply the anti-reflective coating to the lens surfaces by the vapour deposition of extremely thin, transparent layers on the glass. In this process, special substances are vaporized with extremely high energy in a high-vacuum environment and are subsequently deposited on the glass surfaces, one after another, as layers with precisely controlled thicknesses to achieve the desired reduction of reflective properties. The first coating techniques were employed by ZEISS as long ago as in the 1930s.
