A Compact Prime with Maximum Performance and Versatility
Fast, accurate performance and a compact, weatherproof design make the Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 lens the ultimate staple prime. Designed for full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras (and compatible with cropped sensor models), the Sony 35mm f1.8 offers a classic, highly versatile fixed focal length perfect for street photography, environmental portraits, tabletop food photography, landscapes, and more. It’s even great for close-up photography, thanks to a minimum focus distance of 22cm and maximum magnification of 0.24x.
Exceptional Image Quality at Any Aperture
With an innovative optical design, the Sony 35mm f1.8 delivers exceptional image quality even with the aperture wide open. It incorporates one aspherical element, which minimises distortion and maximises clarity from the centre right to the edge of each image. f1.8 maximum brightness helps you to achieve superior results in low light and when capturing fast action, as well as dramatically shallow depth of field and soft background blur to emphasise your subject.
Fast, Accurate, Silent AF Performance
Shallow depth of field offers little margin for focusing error, as do moving subjects. The Sony 35mm f1.8 lens’ linear-motor AF drive means you can count on silent, high-speed and high-precision autofocus operation, as well as reliable tracking, for consistently sharp stills and video. On top of that, an internal focus design keeps your framing consistent throughout the focus range.
Responsive, Intuitive and Reliable Handling
The Sony f1.8 35mm lens is tailored to offer reliable, effortless operation. It features an easy-to-access focus hold button that locks focus when you recompose and can be assigned various other functions (such as Eye AF, Shot Result Preview, or Bright Monitoring) accessible from the camera menu. Linear-response MF adjusts manual focus in perfect sync with focus ring rotations, giving you precise and natural-feeling control. Meanwhile, dust and moisture resistance ensures you can shoot with confidence in challenging shooting conditions.
