Our Price



With high-speed, internal auto focus and excellent close-up performance, this lens offers a short focal distance of 0.72m (0.25x max magnification). Super SteadyShot and its wide aperture make this lens a powerful choice for handheld shots in dark places. The metallic, stylish design of Carl Zeiss adds to the power and performance of the 135mm f/1.8 ZA lens. Its optical design delivers high imaging performance in addition to a beautiful, defocused effect. Using two ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass lenses, the SAL135F18Z lens successfully corrects chromatic aberrations.

Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f/1.8 ZA Lens - SAL135F18Z is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The One and Only I own it...I also have taken thousands of pictures with it. It's almost impossible to take a bad photo with this lens. IMO the 135mm focal length may be the most pleasing for portraits period. The compression is just right and the colors this Zeiss produces are nothing short of astounding. You get this effect where the bokeh is so smooth it's like looking at a wall of glass. Time to update to SSM and other than that their is notable CA wide open. Yes, the Zeiss 135mm F2 APO is better wide open, but to my eyes this still produces better bokeh...and AF is essential IMO if you actually plan on using the lens. This lens is the reason to still continue to shoot A mount- PERIOD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-time Best I've owned more than 25 SLR lenses. This one is the best. It has the best sharpness and the most natural color, but these words don't begin to express what it does. On an A99, it produces images that just grab you. They have a 3D pop that words fail me to describe. The only time I have reacted in this way was shooting with a borrowed Leica M3 with a top-shelf Leica lens (I remember it was a 50mm macro) and Kodachrome 25. Now you can get those kinds of results in the digital world. BTW, the 135 focuses so close, you can use it like a macro. A 135 paired with an A99 is the last word in current digital photography performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very worth while investment This is a very powerful lens. It is fast and under the right conditions, produces the sharpest images I need for my fine art enlargements. It is a little pricy and rather heavy but the speed and the image stabilization compensates for its weight. It is absolutely awesome on a tripod, even under low light or adverse lighting conditions. This is one of my 3 top lenses.
