Despite its compactness, the super wide-angle Zeiss Loxia 2.8/21 offers outstanding image performance – across the entire image field of a full-frame sensor. Whether architecture, landscape or also three-dimensional subjects in close-up against a spacious background – this focal length with its large image angle is an excellent addition to the Loxia lens family. It is an absolute must for wide-angle fans who want to capture even the tiniest details of a special moment in a photo or on film.

Zeiss Loxia lenses were specifically designed for Sony α7 cameras. This means that they can make the most of the mirrorless, full frame system, while giving you all the creative possibilities of ‘classic’ photography with manual focus at the same time.

And that’s not all: Zeiss Loxia lenses also provide everything you need to shoot high quality video, such as the unique DeClick feature for smooth adjustment of the aperture, for example.

Build quality is excellent as you would expect from Zeiss at this price range.

Very sharp from wide open and not much coma to speak of. Sharpness in the corners is great as well. Color and contrast reproduction is very nice with this lens. At 2.8, it does provide decent bokeh for subject separation. It is fast becoming my go-to lens for landscape.

The is focus breathing on the lens which might a be a concern for videographers. It was a bit hard to unmount the lens with not much real-estate to grab on beside either the focusing ring or the aperture.

Other than that, personally sometimes I wish I have another wider prime Loxia/Batis (12-15) to compliment the 21mm. If you like wider, Batis 18mm might be a better choice with autofocus.

The lens pairs very well with my A7R and A7S, and I am sure it will work even better on the latest generation of A7 series camera with in body stabilization.
