Extra speed and wide-angle appeal

This compact, lightweight 24mm ZEISS® Sonnar® design features an F1.8 maximum aperture plus outstanding frame-wide sharpness and contrast. It can also produce beautifully smooth "bokeh" when required. This lens is an outstanding choice for a wide range of subjects, from landscapes to low-light indoor shots and even 1:4 close-ups.

Get close for impressive detail and impact

An advanced optical design ensures that maximum performance is achieved right down to 1:4 macro focusing distances, making it possible to shoot small subjects and details with dramatic clarity and a wide-angle perspective. The lens's large F1.8 maximum aperture is an advantage for close-ups, too.

Smooth and quiet for quality movies

Smooth, quiet operation is essential for moviemaking. An internal drive motor that achieves fluent, low-noise focus operation makes this lens a good choice for movies as well as stills, keeping imagery solid and noise out of the soundtrack.

Refined exterior finish and feel

The black-finished aluminum alloy exterior of this lens affords an appearance that is eminently suitable for the distinguished ZEISS® name, and of course it blends beautifully with the graceful design of E-mount bodies. The engraved focus ring offers sophisticated appearance as well as superior grip and operating feel.

Outstanding color and contrast

The ZEISS® T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced color and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
