ZEISS now has two new lenses that use a unique electronic display to show the focus distance and depth of field. The Batis 25mm f2.0 and the Batis 85mm f1.8 autofocus lenses were developed especially for mirrorless full-frame system cameras by Sony.
With just a glance at the innovative OLED display on top of the lens, one can now see the focus distance and range of depth of field. (Depth of field describes the sharp focus range and depends on a range of factors including the focus distance, the set aperture and the image sensor of the camera type used.)
Depending on the focus distance, one of the following two display modes will be shown.
The display shows the focus distance on the left hand side, and the depth of field on the right hand side. The latter displays the sharp focus range relating to the focus distance.
Long distance situations:
The focus distance is shown in the upper part of the display. Depth of field values are shown in the display corners in the bottom left and right in absolute distance values relating to the distance from the camera system.
The ZEISS Batis autofocus lenses were developed especially for mirrorless full-frame system cameras by Sony. The lenses are fully compatible with all E-mount cameras and offer protection against dust and splashing water in addition to fast and easy autofocus. For creative work, the distance and depth of field can be read from the innovative OLED display. With the completely new lens design, the high-speed ZEISS Batis family offers perfect imaging performance.
ZEISS Batis 25mm f2.0 With a close focusing distance of just 7.9 inches and a fast maximum aperture of f2.0, the ZEISS Batis 25mm wide-angle lens is the perfect companion for shooting landscapes, architecture, street scenes and photojournalism.
ZEISS Batis 85mm f1.8 With a focal length of 85 mm, and a fast f1.8 maximum aperture, this lens is the perfect companion for portrait, event, and wedding photography. The built in optical image stabilization also allows for successful hand-held shooting even in poor light conditions.
