Sonnar T* 5,6/250 CFi

The easy-to-use, all-round telephoto lens

  • The all-purpose, compact 3x telephoto lens that blends out unsettled backgrounds
  • High performance from infinite to near, even at full aperture
  • For high-quality portraits, advertising and fashion photos, particularly with children, also suitable for handheld shots.

This lens is frequently used for distortion-free close-up portraits, particularly in fashion and in advertising photography involving kids that need to be photographed from a distance to appear natural. The optical performance, although optimized for infinity, has been kept very high, even close-up, to enable professional results in studio portrait and product photography. The shallow depth of field makes the Sonnar® T* 5,6/250 CFi lens ideal for blurring out unwanted backgrounds, making the subject stand out impressively.
The optical system is designed for high performance and corner-to-corner uniformity at wide open aperture. The optical materials chosen make this lens very unsusceptible to thermal fluctuations, so it can be safely used in radiant heat from direct summer sunshine, heavy industry furnaces, jet propulsion test beds, rocket launch sites and the like.
