This wide-angle zoom lens by Carl Zeiss is ideal for landscapes, interiors and other scenes where you need a broader field of view. Its high opening aperture is ideal for shooting in low light. You’ll enjoy remarkably consistent clarity and brightness, across the entire image field.
The autofocus system inside your lens needs to operate with total precision, and without creating distracting noises. The built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) keeps focusing smooth and quiet.
The high-performing Vario-Sonnar optical design by Carl Zeiss maintains a wide aperture over the entire focal range. You’ll enjoy consistently bright, high quality imaging at all zoom settings.
Stray light entering the lens can lead to bleached, washed out images, particularly in shadow areas. The sophisticated optical design boosts contrast for sparkling highlights and rich, deep shadows.
Reflections caused by light bouncing off lens surfaces can be a big problem. Unique to Carl Zeiss, the multilayer T* anti-reflective coating on all optical surfaces cuts reflections for brilliant pictures.
