Sony FE 35mm F1.8 Announced


The much-anticipated standard prime lens for the Sony full frame E Mount is announced today, the FE 35mm F1.8 large-aperture wide-angle prime lens which will be available around Aug this year.

The compact size and light weight of this lens provide mobility and convenience for shooting a wide range of daily lifestyle subjects and for street photography in particular. The corner-to-corner image quality from a maximum F1.8 aperture and its quiet autofocus make it a lens for both stills and movie shooting. Due to its compact and small size, it suits the APS-C A5000 or A6000 series offering a 52.5mm equivalent focal length as well as full-frame bodies for the 35mm benefits, perfect for snapshots, portraits and whatever you want to shoot.

There are some of the excerpts from the official press release:

High resolution and large-aperture full-frame performance in compact and lightweight lens

  • Large F1.8 maximum aperture, weighing in at just 280 grams and measuring 65.6 mm (diameter) by 73.0mm (length); this new lens sets a new standard for portability.
  • Smart optical construction including an aspherical element to suppress aberration and deliver high resolution throughout the entire image frame. 9-blade circular aperture enables beautiful bokeh.
  • Minimum focus distance of 0.22m and maximum magnification of 0.24x offer easy access to the world of close-up photography.

Versatile control and handling for a wide range of imaging needs

  • Conveniently placed, customisable focus hold button and a focus mode switch for instantaneous switching between auto and manual focus.
  • Linear Response Manual Focus for fine, responsive manual focus control.
  • Dust and moisture resistant design add to the versatility and reliability of this new lens and invoke a feeling of confidence in the user. 

Quiet AF with excellent tracking for movies as well as stills

  • Fast, precise and quiet linear-motor AF drive system for precise focus for both stills and movies where “wobbling” is employed for delicate continuous focus control.
