Vario-Sonnar T(star) 24-70mm F2.8 ZA SSM
Compact size, light in weight, easy to carry
Zoom range of 24-70mm for all-around versatility
Brilliant large-aperture f2.8 design
Carl Zeiss T* coating to minimize lens flare
Fast, silent auto-focus — SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
Aspherical lens elements to reduce spherical distortion
Excellent defocusing effects for less background distraction
ED glass elements for minimum color aberration
35mm equivalent: 36-105mm
Superb image quality
Two ED glass elements and 2 aspherical elements help reduce chromatic aberration throughout the focal range.
Carl Zeiss T* coating
The legendary T* coating from Carl Zeiss makes it possible to design complex optics by reducing internal reflections on multi-element lenses minimizing flare and allowing for higher contrast. The result, significantly improved performance throughout the entire optical path.
17 elements in 13 groups
The specially designed grouping of elements includes a floating design between the 3rd and 4th groups allowing for excellent compensation of various aberrations caused by zooming.
SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
Convenience without compromise
For those that insist on the quality of a large aperture prime, but want the convenience of a variable focal length, this is a lens that brings the best of both worlds. The large F2.8 maximum aperture is maintained throughout the focal range of 24mm – 70mm.
