Offering outstanding image quality even at its maximum F1.8 aperture, the compact, 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 as well as stills.
Thanks to innovative optical design, this large-aperture lens weighs a mere 280 g (9.9 oz) and is just 65.6 mm in diameter by 73 mm in length. Convenience and mobility come with superb image quality, making it a great all-around choice for 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 out to the image periphery. Smooth bokeh is also available when needed, supported by a nine-blade circular aperture mechanism that contributes to natural-looking highlights. 0.22-m (0.73-ft) 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 has a focus mode switch that allows instant switching between auto and manual focus. A dust-resistant and moisture-resistant design ensure 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 the 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.
