CONTAX Introduces New Carl Zeiss Zoom Lens For The 645 System
New Vario-Sonnar T* f/4.5 45-90mm Mid-Range Lens, Perfect Match for Photo-Journalists and Wedding PhotographersSOMERSET, NJ – Kyocera Optics, Inc., announces the introduction of the new Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* f/4.5 45-90mm lens for the Contax 645 system. The compact Vario-Sonnar T* 45-90mm lens incorporates the Dual Focus Mechanism and has a fast, constant aperture of f/4.5.
The Vario-Sonnar T* 45-90mm lens is a perfect one-lens solution that meets the needs of professional photographers, especially those in the wedding industry, by providing moderate wide angle to normal coverage. The lens is also a perfect choice for general, landscape, event and location photography. The lens is approximately equivalent to a 28– 55mm (in 35mm format) and allows for greater flexibility when space is limited and working distances do not allow the use of a longer focal length lens.
The latest optical and eco-glass technology were used to develop this lens, resulting in unsurpassed contrast and color reproduction, the hallmark of Carl Zeiss T* lenses. In addition, the new Carl Zeiss 45-90mm lens takes full advantage of Carl Zeiss' improved internal baffling system technology that controls stray light increasing contrast and image quality. In addition, the Carl Zeiss T* Vario-Sonnar is supplied with a Contax Three Year Limited Warranty.
The street price of the Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 45-90mm lens is $2,900.00.
