Sep 30 16
Carl Zeiss has expanded its Zeiss Loxia family with a short telephoto lens, the Loxia 2.4/85, for mirrorless Sony full-frame cameras with E mount. It supplements three focal lengths that are already available for this lens family, namely the ZEISS Loxia 2.8/21, Loxia 2/35 and Loxia 2/50, and was specially designed for mirrorless full-frame cameras with E mount. The compact ZEISS Loxia lenses are the ideal choice for travel and street photographers who value light and compact camera equipment. "In terms of its technology and the feel of its surface, the ZEISS Loxia 2.4/85 fits perfectly with the existing focal lengths, and is particularly well suited for portrait photography," said Christophe Casenave, product manager with ZEISS Camera Lenses. The ZEISS Loxia 2.4/85 will be available in stores starting mid of December 2016. The new ZEISS Loxia 2.4/85 has been designed for digital sensors. The recommended retail sales price is EUR 1,399 or USD 1,399.
