|SONNAR||Optical design invented by Ludwig Bertele in 1929. Lenses that use this optical design are lightweight and of high speed. The Sonnar designation comes from German word Sonne which means "sun" and emphasized the lens speed of 2.0 (that was extraordinary rare in those days). In comparison with Planar the Sonnar design has more optical aberrations but the contrast and flare control is much better. In comparison with older Tessar design it has less chromatic aberrations and the lens speed is higher. Due to short working distance the Sonnar design could not be used in wide angle lenses for SLR cameras. That's why Sonnar lenses for SLR cameras are generally available with focal lengths of 135mm or more.|
|T*||The multi-layer coating is applied to the surface of lens elements. It boosts light transmission, ensures sharp and high contrast images, minimizes ghosting and flares.|

Design and Features
The 35-135 mm Vario-Sonnar® T* f/3.3-4.5 lens from Carl Zeiss is a 3.8x zoom lens. Its superb image quality makes it another valuable addition to the existing range of Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar® lenses for the Contax® SLR Camera System. The image quality is very good even at the shortest focusing distance of 1.2 m.
This Vario lens has also been manufactured using the one-touch zoom design patented by Carl Zeiss, i.e. the same ring is used for focusing and zooming.
The large focal range starting at 35 mm allows the use of this lens for almost all applications in architectural, landscape, portrait and sports photography.
Furthermore, the macro setting permits pictures to be taken down to a reproduction ratio of 1:4.
