Zeiss Loxia 85mm F2.4 Sonnar Image Galleries
February 18th, 2019
The original idea behind mirrorless cameras was they would be smaller, lighter alternatives to DSLRs due to the differences in technology while providing similar levels of optical performance. As I’ve noted in many subsequent reviews this idea is often lost, as frequently lenses designed for mirrorless (like the Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master) are, if anything, bigger and heavier than their DSLR counterparts. But Zeiss has managed to design an extremely compact, extremely high performance range for Sony FE (full frame mirrorless) – the Loxia series of lenses. The short telephoto end of the lineup is handled ably by the Zeiss Loxia 85mm F2.4 Sonnar, a lens that delivers a tremendous amount of optical punch with high contrast, extremely sharp, and vividly colored images. These galleries will contain a variety of photos of the beautiful lens lens and taken with it. The Loxia 85mm F2.4 is a great stills lens, but an even better video lens. Check out this little short film I shot with it to commemorate my favorite part of the day and my morning routine as a minister.
Stay tuned for my ongoing coverage and final review!
