1.4/55 / SLR lens

Discipline: Product

With regards to performance and perfection, the new SLR lenses from Carl Zeiss push the limits of technical feasibility. They are based on a holistic design strategy. The lens shade, usually an accessory, has been seamlessly integrated into the lens. Luminous yellow labeling, known from the professional cine world, facilitates reading in the dark; the window scale focuses the view on the just needed relevant information. The all-metal frame ensures high stability; rubber setting rings enable precise manual operation. The flush, fine satin-finished surfaces allow users to experience the precision inside.
