What are the different types of ZEISS lenses available?

There are a variety of camera lenses available for you to choose from, including wide-angle and macro lenses.

  • Fish-eye: This is a type of lens that offers up a field of view when snapping a photo of nearly 180 degrees. Because of this wide viewing angle, there is a distinct distortion at the edges.
  • Macro: This type of lens is designed for close-up situations where the object of the photo is nearly touching the lens glass.
  • Telephoto: This is a type of lens that comes with a long focal length, which produces an image that is magnified along with a field of view that is narrowed. Due to the way in which these images are magnified, the objects within the photo appear close to the camera.
  • Wide-angle: This encompasses any type of lens that comes with a short focal length as the picture that is produced consists of more of a scene than with longer focal lengths.
  • Zoom: This is a type of ZEISS lens that is equipped with a focal length range that can be altered at any point in time.
