Zeiss Loxia 35/2 and 50/2 In Hand

Pre-Order Zeiss Loxia lenses at B&H Photo.

The two new Zeiss Loxia lenses incorporate proven Zeiss designs into all-metal manual focusing lens bodies for the full-frame Sony Alpha A7/A7R system.

I now have the 35/2 and 50/2 Zeiss Loxia lenses in hand. From an ergonomics standpoint alone they are terrific, and these are the lenses I would choose as a Sony A7s/A7/A7R shooter for many purposes.

The Loxia lenses are extremely well built, an entirely better feel in the hand than the plasticky Sony/Zeiss 35/2.8 and 55/1.8 designs.

The manual focus throw of 180° is silky smooth and far superior to the autofocus Sony/Zeiss cousins. With the EVF on the Sony bodies, manual focus should be fast and precise given the excellent “throw” and the smooth feel.
