Zeiss Loxia 21mm f/2.8 Lens for Sony E Mount

Compact, wide-angle and powerful – these are the properties that make the super wide-angle Loxia 2.8/21 so special. The optical design has been specially developed for high-resolution, full-frame sensors of the mirrorless Sony α series.

Compact and wide-angle in one

A system expansion through the new Zeiss Loxia – in a focal length range that has a long tradition at Zeiss. Despite its compactness, the super wide-angle Zeiss Loxia 2.8/21 offers outstanding image performance – across the entire image field of a full-frame sensor. Whether architecture, landscape or also three-dimensional subjects in close-up against a spacious background – this focal length with its large image angle is an excellent addition to the Loxia lens family. It is an absolute must for wide-angle fans who want to capture even the tiniest details of a special moment in a photo or on film.

Zeiss Loxia lenses were specifically designed for Sony α7 cameras. This means that they can make the most of the mirrorless, full frame system while giving you all the creative possibilities of ‘classic’ photography with manual focus at the same time.

And that’s not all: Zeiss Loxia lenses also provide everything you need to shoot high-quality video, such as the unique DeClick feature for smooth adjustment of the aperture, for example.

Features

  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Four Low Dispersion Elements
  • One Aspherical Element
  • Distagon Optical Design
  • Zeiss T* Anti-Reflective Coating
  • Manual Focus Design
  • Manual Aperture Ring Can Be De-Clicked
  • Weather-Sealed Construction

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.

Precise manual focus

Manually focusing a lens means controlling the image result from your fingertips. A 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.

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.

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.

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 a 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).
