The T* (T-star) coating contributes to typically outstanding Carl Zeiss image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. The coating subdues reflections at the lens surfaces, increasing transmission and minimizing flare and ghosting that can compromise rendering. Natural color reproduction and impressive presence give subjects a lifelike quality. Five aspherical elements and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element in an advanced optical design reduce aberration and distortion to a minimum.
