The fast and compact FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens from Sony provides a versatile wide-angle solution for your full-frame E-mount camera. It boasts a maximum aperture of f/1.8 for selective focus effects and for working in low-light conditions. To help ensure high-quality imaging in a range of conditions, the lens’ aspherical element reduces aberrations and field curvature while maintaining contrast and edge-to-edge sharpness. For fast, responsive focusing, the 35mm uses a linear motor and internal focus design, while a customizable focus hold button locks focus when recomposing and can be set to activate other functions, including Eye AF, AF On, Aperture Preview, Shot Result Preview, or Bright Monitoring among others. Also, this lens has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction that will permit operation in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Additionally, it has a nine-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.
Offering outstanding image quality even at its maximum F1.8 aperture, this compact and lightweight 35-mm prime lens for full-frame cameras is a versatile choice for everything from tabletop photography to the great outdoors. Fast, precise, quiet AF operation and reliable AF tracking make it suitable for shooting videos and stills.
Thanks to innovative optical design, this large-aperture lens weighs a mere 9.9 oz (280 g) and is just 65.6 mm in diameter by 73 mm in length. That convenience and mobility come with superb image quality that makes it a great choice for both stills and movies. It is a full-frame lens, but also balances well with APS-C bodies, providing an equivalent focal length of 52.5 mm that is ideal for portraits and snapshots.
An aspherical element is strategically implemented in this lens’s advanced design to suppress optical aberration and achieve high resolution right out to the image periphery. Smooth bokeh is available when needed, supported by a 9-blade circular aperture mechanism that contributes to natural looking highlights. 0.73 ft (0.22 m) minimum focus distance and 0.24x maximum magnification make this lens useful for close-ups too.
A conveniently placed focus hold button not only offers easy focus hold control, but can be assigned to a variety of other functions from a menu accessed via the camera body. The lens also features a focus mode switch that allows instant switching between auto and manual focus. A dust- and moisture-resistant design ensures maximum reliability in challenging shooting environments.
The narrow depth of field available at a wide F1.8 aperture makes focus critical. The fast response and high precision of this lens’s linear-motor AF drive system ensure fast, precise, quiet autofocus operation. Outstanding AF performance is available not only for stills, but also for movies where “wobbling” is employed for delicate continuous focus control.
Impressive optical performance for Sony cameras, precision engineered for versatility and reliability in a wide range of applications.
MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.
