Carl Zeiss T* N Mount Auto Focus Lenses - Makro-Sonnar T* 100mm f2.8

Lens ImageThe Carl Zeiss Makro-Sonnar® T* 2.8/100 lens is an all-round, high performance autofocus lens, covering the focusing range from infinity to life-size 1:1.

It is the right optic for an unusually wide spectrum of subjects, ranging from landscapes and portraits to life-size photos of small animals. The applied floating element design, combined with expensive fluor crown glass types with anomalous dispersion, used in three lens elements, enable high performance over the entire focussing range.

Preferred areas of application:
Demanding product shots, portraits, flowers, animals, documentary photos with high detail content.

The sharpness of the Makro-Sonnar® T* 2.8/100 lens challenges the potential of today's best color films to the extreme.

At the close focussing limit, the free working distance is 15 cm. This favourably large distance expands the creative freedom of the close-up photographer and eases the use of flash, reflectors, and other light sources.

In autofocus operation, either full range autofocus or zone focus can be selected. Zone focus operation divides the entire range into a macro range and a general range. Thus, in either sub-range the autofocus speed is higher than in full range operation. In addition, the dual focussing operation enables to manually override the autofocus quickly and easily with no need of actuating a switch to achieve this.
