Zeiss Announces the Fifth Lens in their Manual Focus Fullframe E-mount Lens Line, the Loxia 25mm f/2.4 E-mount Lens
Zeiss Loxia 25mm f/2.4 Lens ($1,299) is a wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. It features a compact form factor at only 2.9″ in length, and is based on the Distagon optical concept, providing an image that is notably sharp and free of distortion from edge to edge. The optical construction also incorporates two anomalous partial dispersion elements and one aspherical lens to help control chromatic aberrations and increase clarity and color accuracy. Applied to all elements is Zeiss’ T* anti-reflective coating that minimizes lens flare and ghosting.
Loxia lenses have a manual focus ring that has been specifically tailored for use with electronic viewfinders, and also offer a manual aperture ring that can be de-clicked for silent operation. Both of these features make this lens especially well-suited to filmmaking applications. The durable all-metal barrel incorporates engraved focusing and depth of field scales for easy operation, and a 90° focus throw gives you fine-tuned control over your composition. For added protection, the lens mount features a weather-resistant gasket to help prevent any dust or moisture from entering your camera.
