With a fast aperture of f/2 and a focal length between that of a moderate wide-angle and a standard lens, the Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF can be used for a wide variety of subjects, from portraits to architecture, documentary and street photography. The minimum focus of only 24 cm also makes it ideal for capturing interesting details or even food photography. Just let your creativity flow!
Smooth and reliable autofocus
The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of the Batis 40mm f/2 CF and other Zeiss Batis lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism that provides the best possible imaging performance. A unique feature of the Batis series is the built-in OLED display that shows the focus distance and depth of field at any given aperture setting. Thanks to its high contrast it works just as well in daylight as in poor lighting conditions.
Despite its compact design, the Batis 40mm f/2 CF has no problems living up to even the highest expectations of professional photographers. The advanced optical design with 9 elements divided into 8 groups combined with Zeiss’s legendary T* anti-reflective coating ensures that every moment is captured with that exceptional contrast, sharpness and color rendition that is synonymous with the famous Zeiss look. Looking for a lens with lots of micro-contrast already at full aperture? You’ve found it!
