General info

1.Front element doesn't rotate
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

2.Weather sealed
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

3.Is a wide angle lens
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

A wide angle lens is great for capturing larger areas of a scene, such as when doing architectural or landscape photography.

4.has or is a prime lens
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.

5.minimum focal length

5.6mm

25mm

A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.

6.maximum focal length

5.6mm

25mm

A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.

Optics

1.has built-in optical image stabilization
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

For example

Fujifilm GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR

2.optical zoom

1x

1x

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

3.minimum angle of view

75°

24°

At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).

29°

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).

Aperture

1.smallest aperture at maximum focal length

22f

22f

A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.

2.widest aperture at maximum focal length

5.6f

2f

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

Focus

1.Has full-time manual focus
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

2.Can focus to infinity
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

3.minimum focus distance

1m

0.2m

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.

4.Has focus motor
Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

5.has a silent focus motor built into the lens

Zeiss Batis 25mm F2

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
