Sony SEL 55mm F1.8 FE Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

Sony SEL 55mm F1.8 FE Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*


This is the type of lens that would always come out on top in a blind test.

Fancy Zeiss T* coatings plus tried and true Sonnar design aside, the Sony 55mm F1.8 strikes such a nice balance of high sharpness, pleasing colours and out of focus areas.

Lovely lens for portraits and colourful details (such as cars, products, abstracts).

Well built and extremely fast autofocus just add to the pleasure of using this lens.




  • Classic lens design made popular by Zeiss in the 1930s.
  • Beautiful metal build and handy weather sealing.
  • Fast f/1.8 aperture creates lovely out of focus areas in your photos, yet this lens remains bitingly sharp.
  • At 70mm long, the Sony 55mm fits perfectly on both full-frame and APS-C Sony cameras.
  • The 83mm equivalent focal length on Sony’s a6000 series make this an ideal portrait lens.
  • More than sharp enough for Sony’s high-resolution cameras such as the A7R series.
  • Legendary Zeiss T* coatings for sharp/contrasty photos with no flare.
