The telephoto lens for a new era
The journey to the moon and ZEISS
50th anniversary of the moon landing
On July 20, 1969, a collective dream became reality, with a footprint symbolizing this achievement: on that day, man set foot on the Moon for the first time. The limits of what seemed possible were now redefined.
When the ambition was set to send a man to the moon and return safe back to the earth, many people helped to make this dream of mankind come true. Thousands of engineers and technicians throughout all disciplines and countries got involved.
ZEISS became part of this challenge: camera lenses specially designed for space captured the iconic images of this monumental achievement.
Thanks to a speed of 1:1.8, very low depths of field can be used creatively. The optical image stabilization allows for successful hand-held shooting even in poor light conditions. With a focal length of 85 mm, the lens is the perfect companion for portrait, event, and wedding photography.
The ZEISS Batis autofocus lenses were developed especially for mirrorless full-frame system cameras by Sony. The lenses are fully compatible with all E-mount cameras and offer protection against dust and splashing water in addition to fast and easy autofocus. For creative work, the distance and depth of field can be read from the innovative OLED display. With the completely new lens design, the high-speed ZEISS Batis family offers perfect imaging performance.
