Sony SEL55F18Z Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens Value Kit

The Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens is a prime, normal focal length lens featuring a very fast and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to support working in dimly-lit conditions and for greater control over focus for shallow depth of field imagery. The sophisticated Sonnar optical design enables high resolution and sharpness with optimized low-light shooting capabilities. A Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity. Additionally, a dust- and moisture-resistant construction ensures this lens' use in tough environmental conditions. The big, bright maximum aperture means you can shoot handheld in low-light conditions while still getting outstanding sharpness and clarity.

Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens

Sony's Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens is a standard focal length prime lens that features a fast aperture in a compact, streamlined design. Offering a 82.5mm comparable APS-C focal length, its f/1.8 aperture is bright and quick, which allows you to capture more light and confidently shoot in dimly lit or tough lighting conditions. Sony applied a Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating. This works to combat the effects of ghosting and flares and leads to greater contrast and color fidelity.  This lens creates a 42.9 degree angle of view, a 1.64-feet focal length and accepts 49mm filters. 

The T* coating works with an innovative optical design to suppress internal reflections, for sublime contrast from highlights to deep blacks. In keeping with the Sonnar concept, a large F1.8 maximum aperture can produce beautiful full-frame background bokeh, but you also have the option of stopping down for extended depth-of-field. Linear motor driven internal focusing is smooth and quiet, and a dust and moisture resistant design ensures consistently reliable performance.

Fast F1.8 for Broad Creative Control

Renowned ZEISS contrast and resolution bring out the best in full frame image sensors such as those in the Sony α7 series, and a large F1.8 maximum aperture can produce beautiful full-frame background bokeh. You can also stop down for extended depth-of-field. A bright lens like this is also an advantage when shooting in low light.

Smooth Bokeh Enhances Depth and Dimension

A nine-blade circular aperture works with this lens’s optics to create beautifully smooth bokeh in out-of-focus background areas when desired, with natural-looking highlights that won’t distract from the important foreground subject and details.

Better Image Quality

Advanced technology from ZEISS and Sony combines in a precision optical design with three aspherical elements, two double-sided that effectively reduce all forms of aberration while achieving outstanding image-wide sharpness and contrast. The ZEISS T* coating suppresses internal reflections, for sublime contrast from highlights to deep blacks.

Shoot with Confidence Anywhere

Some of the most exciting images are captured in challenging environments. A dust and moisture resistant design means that the lens will continue to perform reliably in moderately wet or dusty conditions, so you can shoot with confidence wherever those great shots are found.

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.

Focus Lens Cleaning Pen

The Focus Lens Cleaning Pen is perfect for cleaning binocular lenses, small aperture spotting scopes, telescope eyepieces and other optical items. Comes with a handy retractable dust removal brush. Safe and very easy to use.

Focus Camera 49mm UV Protective Lens Filter

The Focus Camera 49mm UV Lens Protection Filter is a multi-purpose glass filter that is designed to optimize your photography experience. UV filters block out unwanted ultraviolet light and prevents the UV fogging/haze effect, which can result in inaccurate color and lower the apparent sharpness. This filter is also ideal for protecting your valuable lens from scratches and dust, and it can be kept on the lens at all times, and allows for sharper and clearer photos.

Focus Camera Neoprene Lens Pouch (Small)

Protect your camera from scratches, nicks, dust and dirt with this sturdy neoprene lens pouch. It has a lockable drawstring closure and built-in clip to go on your gadget bag's strap.

Focus Camera Lens Cap Keeper
