|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 80-200 mm Vario-Sonnar® T* f/4 lens from Carl Zeiss is a light, one-touch zoom lens which provides very good image quality over the entire focal length range. As with the 35-70 mm Vario-Sonnar® T* f/3.4 lens, the same ring is used for zooming and focusing.
The relative aperture set and the image position remain constant over the entire focal length range. The lens displays very low distortion over the entire focal length range.
The 80-200 mm Vario-Sonnar® T* f/4 lens is suited for a wide variety of work in the close and medium telephoto ranges.
