OBERKOCHEN, Germany, April 21, 2016 — Wide Angle Autofocus LensCarl Zeiss AG has announced the Batis 2.8/18 wide-angle lens with autofocus for the Sony E-Mount cameras.

The lens features a diagonal angular field of 99° and an innovative OLED display to show focus distance and depth of field. It’s ideal for capturing unique images in landscape, architectural and astro photography, as well as interior shots of small spaces.

The lens has 11 lens elements in 10 groups and draws on the Zeiss Distagon optical design. Four of the lens elements are aspheric on both sides, with seven are made from special types of glass. The floating elements design permits high image performance in the focal plane.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
