General info

1.weight

335g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a metal mount
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
4.has or is a prime lens
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
5.Lens hood is reversible
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
The lens hood can screw onto the lens in reverse so that you can keep it on your camera at all times, ready to use.
6.minimum focal length

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.

Optics

1.maximum angle of view

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).
2.minimum angle of view

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).
3.optical zoom

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.

Aperture

1.widest aperture at maximum focal length

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.
2.wide aperture (main camera)

f/2.0

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.
3.smallest aperture at maximum focal length

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.
4.smallest aperture at minimum focal length

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.

Focus

1.Has focus motor
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
2.Can focus to infinity
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

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 full-time manual focus
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.

Benchmarks

1.sharpness result

22P-MPix

The sharpness result from the DxOMark set of metrics. This result is based on the MTF (modulation transfer function) measurement, and gives an overall indication of the sharpness of images produced by the lens. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
2.chromatic aberration

6µm

The lateral chromatic aberration result from the DxOMark set of metrics. Chromatic aberration is a type of distortion which results in color fringing along edges within the image. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
3.distortion

0.5%

The distortion result from the DxOMark set of metrics. Distortion in the lens refers to the variation of magnification throughout the image. More distortion will result in straight lines being recorded incorrectly in the image. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
4.transmission

2TStop

The transmission result from the DxOMark set of metrics. Transmission refers to the amount of light that reaches the sensor through all of the glass elements of a lens, with a lower TStop signifying more light. This is important as less light reaching the sensor can lead to the requirement of higher ISOs or slower shutter speeds. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
5.vignetting

-2.5

The vignetting result from the DxOMark set of metrics. Vignetting refers to when the brightness of an image changes from the center towards the edges, resulting in darkened corners. A result of 0 is perfect and the image will have no vignetting. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
6.DxOMark score

39

DxOMark is a set of tests to measure the performance and quality of lenses and cameras. The DxOMark score is the overall score given to the lens. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
