The ZEISS Batis 2.8/18 is impressive on account of its high image quality across the entire image field. By virtue of the large diagonal angular field of 99°, this lens is ideal for capturing unique images in landscape, architectural and astro photography and for impressive interior shots of small spaces.
Features for discerning users
This super wide-angle camera lens has 11 lens elements in 10 groups and draws on the ZEISS Distagon optical design. Four of the lens elements are aspheric on both sides and seven are made from special types of glass. The Floating Elements design permits constantly high image performance in the focal plane – from the minimum object distance to infinity.
The ZEISS Batis 2.8/18 also features an innovative OLED display to show focus distance and depth of field depending on the camera sensor used. The electronic display is easy to read even in low light. The fast, quiet AF drive with linear motors keeps the subject sharply in focus.
In addition to the autofocus, a handy, rubberized focus ring supports precise manual focusing – meaning the photographer has full creative freedom when it comes to image composition. ZEISS Batis lenses are also equipped with dust and weather seals, allowing them to be used in even the harshest weather conditions. All ZEISS Batis lenses support all the operating modes and functions of the current range of E-mount cameras.
