The Carl Zeiss Apo Sonnar 135 mm F2  is an  apochromatic portrait manual focus and zoom lens for 35 mm Canon EF (model ZE) and Nikon F (model  ZF.2) DSLR cameras.

The apochromatic design is provided with optical elements with anomalous dispersion. As well as  the other SLR lenses, the Sonnar 2/135 features Т*  anti-reflective coating. The edges of its optical elements have been treated with special black varnish, which considerably decreases rereflections and light scattering inside the lens.

The Apo Sonnar T * 2/135 features an all-metal body design,  providing durable consumption  and high-quality performance. The lens is compatible with F (model ZF.2) and EF (model ZE)  camera mounts.
