A 50mm lens was legendary photographer Cartier Bresson’s favourite.  The reason is simple: this focal length provides the equivalent field of view of the human eye on a 35mm camera, which makes for a very natural perspective.  Compact, light and extremely flexible, the ZEISS Loxia® 2/50 shines in the most varied of applications.  Regardless of whether it’s for street photography, landscapes, portraits or spontaneous discoveries, the ZEISS Loxia 2/50 is the ideal companion for photographic and filmic exploration.

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.

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.

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.
