The New Zeiss Loxia 85mm f2.4 is Another FE Portrait Lens

Today at Photokina 2016, a lens that hasn’t been kept such a great secret is finally out of the bag: the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f2.4 for Sony E mount cameras. Like all other Loxia lenses, it is weather sealed and manual focus while retaining an incredibly compact size. There are seven lens elements in their own groups and the close focusing distance is around a little under 27 inches. Weighing 595 grams, it’s also going to be accordingly lightweight considering that it’s designed to work with a mirrorless camera.

This is going to be really interesting for portrait photographers!

When it launches, the lens will cost $1,399. Tech specs and more photos are after the jump.
