General info

1.Weather sealed
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

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

2.has or is a prime lens
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

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

3.Includes lens hood
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.

4.Has a metal mount

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.

Optics

1.has built-in optical image stabilization
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

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.

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.

4.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).

Aperture

1.widest aperture at maximum focal length

1.8f

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.widest aperture

f/1.8

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.

Focus

1.Has full-time manual focus
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

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.minimum focus distance

0.8m

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.

3.Can focus to infinity
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

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.

4.Has focus motor
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8

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