  • Macro Lens
  • Makro-Planar
  • Maximum Reproduction Ratio: 1:1
  • Filter Thread: M52 x 0.75
  • For extreme close-ups, portraits or panoramas
  • 1:1 Macro Capability:
  • Lets you capture the smallest things and the tiniest details at their actual size
  • At its closest focusing distance, subjects sized 15x23 mm fill the frame with an impressive maximum reproduction ratio of 1:1
  • Imaging performance of the ZEISS Touit 2.8/50M is just as exceptional at such short distances as it is at medium and long distances
  • Minimum distortion, outstanding correction of chromatic aberrations, minimal image field curvature and excellent correction of coma and astigmatism allow true-to-life reproduction of any subject, particularly in combination with the high resolving power of modern sensors
  • Full compatibility:
  • Designed and constructed specifically for use on Sony NEX cameras with APS-C sensors
  • The lenses are therefore fully-compatible and support all camera functions, including autofocus
  • Excellent resolution and high contrast:
  • Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions
  • However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows
  • This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded
  • To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light
  • Floating Elements Design:
  • Due to floating element design principles, optical aberration effects in ZEISS lenses are reduced to a minimum throughout their entire focusing range
  • This is achieved by variation of the axial distance between individual lens elements or groups
  • This adjustment of the lens-to-lens distance is coupled to the distance setting to ensure correct compensation at all times
  • The mechanical construction of these lenses is extremely complex and they must be assembled with utmost precision - both of which are key competencies of ZEISS
  • Ideal aperture characteristics:
  • Photographers want to lead the viewer through their images
  • Planes with minimum depth of focus are often employed as creative elements
  • For instance, the background is kept intentionally out of focus to lead the viewer's eye to the actual subject of the image
  • The Touit lenses feature a nine-blade iris that closes to create an almost perfectly circular aperture
  • The effect of this is the creation of a particularly harmonious effect in the out of focus areas of the image ('Bokeh')
