No, the Sony 55mm f1.8 Zeiss lens does not feature a built-in image stabilisation system. However, it produces very sharp images with great colour rendition and almost zero distortion or aberration – and with the f1.8 aperture it allows very fast handheld shooting. Just be sure to keep your shutter speed at or faster than 1/125 seconds for beautiful blur-free images.
The Sony 55mm f1.8 Zeiss lens is fabulous for portraits, thanks to its rounded nine-blade diaphragm and f1.8 aperture which allow you to create gorgeous bokeh. But it’s also a great little walkabout lens due to its very compact and lightweight nature. Whether you’re out and about shooting street scapes or creating unique effects with shallow depth of field in typical everyday scenes, this lens opens up the possibilities and will continue to perform well into the low-light of night.
