ZEISS Loxia 2/35

The subtle reporter


The Loxia range of prime manual-focus lenses has been designed specifically to fit the high-resolution full-frame sensors of Sony3 E-mount cameras. Size and weight balance the compact format without sacrificing image quality. For videographers, the unique DeClick feature allows silent aperture adjustment, and focussing is extremely smooth.

The 35 mm focal length offers a moderate wide-angle with enough perspective to show your subject in its context or establish connections between people – ideal for reportage or street photography. In combination with the compact, lightweight format of the Sony mirrorless cameras, the ZEISS Loxia 2/35 gives you a great deal of independence. When discretion is important, the size and weight will make it easy to use for natural, unobtrusive shots, telling the story of how it is. The precise manual focus and fast f/2 maximum aperture mean you can direct the viewer's eye to what you want – to tell your story your way.

Features


DeClick feature
One completely new feature of the Loxia lens is that you can declick the aperture's locking mechanism using a tool (supplied) and an adjustment screw on the bayonet surface. This means that for video applications, you can smoothly eliminate any unwanted differences in brightness as you pan the camera. This feature can also be used with other video systems whose size makes them suitable for adaption.
Immensely compatible
The ZEISS Loxia lenses are suitable for use with the mirrorless Sony Alpha cameras with E-mount and were optimized for sensors up to full 35 mm format (24 x 36 mm). With the ZEISS Loxia lenses, the aperture is controlled manually. This allowed the integration of the so-called DeClick feature of the mechanical aperture ring. The cameras feature the corresponding automatic exposure control (A) and manual exposure control (M).
High-grade full-metal casing
Tangible quality that holds its value is what qualifies ZEISS lenses for decades of hard use. A precision-engineered full-metal casing, grippy focus and aperture rings made of metal, and a tough front bayonet and filter screw guarantee stunning photographic results. A special sealing ring on the bayonet also protects the interface between the camera and the lens.
Virtually distortion-free optics
Dramatic perspectives and a view from extraordinary image angles - ZEISS lenses open up new composition possibilities. Distortion would disrupt the composition because straight lines, whose image does not go through the image centre, would be reproduced with a curved shape. This annoying effect is accordingly and largely compensated through elaborate optical designs at all focal lengths.

Precise manual focus
Manually focusing a lens means controlling the image result from your fingertips. The good ergonomic design makes all the difference. ZEISS lenses stand out with their large rotation angle which enables precise focusing. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder. The high-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without play, thus also supporting the intuitive interaction with the focal plane. The precise engraving in meter and feet and the depth of focus scale provide additional support for manually focusing.
