A lens design with relatively few glass-to-air surfaces, invented by Dr. Ludwig Bertele at Carl Zeiss in 1930 to provide the fastest lenses of that day.
The name Sonnar, containig the German word for sun, ’Sonne’, the symbol of utmost brightness. Since the Planar lens with its many glass-to-air surfaces could successfully take over the ’fastest lens’ role from the Sonnar lens, after Dr. Alexander Smakula at Carl Zeiss invented anti-reflex coating in 1935, the Sonnar design turned out its other virtues. Today it is the basis for compact high-performance medium telephoto lenses with speeds up to f/2.8, very elaborate correction of lens errors, incorporating expensive optical glass types, and offering very even corner-to-corner illumination.
The Carl Zeiss Sonnar 150mm lens has been the classical portrait lens in the Hasselblad system. With a focal length approximately twice the image frame diagonal, the Sonnar 150mm lens delivers the ideal perspective for classic head and shoulder portraits. The built-in Prontor shutter allows for flash synchronisation up to 1/500 s providing the photographer with the freedom to balance flash and ambient light very creatively.
The Carl Zeiss Sonnar 150mm lens is very compact and, together with a Hasselblad camera body, it makes for a unit that can be easily used for handheld photography. The Carl Zeiss Sonnar 150mm offers an optical performance so high, that its sharpness can be fully exploited only with a very good tripod.
This lens model fits onto a Hasselblad body.
