Zeiss has added a new lens to its manual focus Loxia line, introducing the Zeiss Loxia 25mm f/2.4, price tag €1,299 / $1,299, for Sony E-mount cameras.

Aimed at architectural and landscape photographers, the compact wide-angle Loxia lens is designed for use with Sony’s full-frame Alpha cameras.

The Loxia 25mm f/2.4 joins the 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2, 50mm f/2 and 85mm f/2.4 lenses in Zeiss’ Loxia range.

The idea behind making the lenses manual focus, Zeiss says, is that it allows for a lightweight build and allows photographers to remain inconspicuous, as manual focusing is silent.

Zeiss says it also allows for more precise focusing: “The electronic interface for the ZEISS Loxia 2.4/25 transfers both lens data and focus movements to the Sony camera and then activates the focus peaking or the zoom function.”
