Sony FE 35 mm f / 1.8 is another full frame lens series designed for A7 and A9 series cameras. Many photographers have been waiting for this focal point for a long time.
It seems that the owners of mirrorless Sony with APS-C matrixes find it easier to find glasses with interesting parameters and reasonable prices. such lenses are 35 mm f / 1.8 OSS and 50 mm f / 1.8 OSS. While in full frame version Sony had "fifty", there was no popular focal length, ideal for street photography – 35 mm . Now it has changed.
Bright full frame Sony
Despite the large opening of the aperture, the new lens has a small size and weight, which ensures comfort and mobility in a wide range of applications. Its distinguishing feature is exceptional image quality in the entire frame, even with a fully open aperture. The silent AF system and precise focus tracking also helps in shooting and filming. The small dimensions of the lens allow it to be used on bodies with a full frame or APS-C sensor . In the latter case, the effective focal length is 52.5 mm.The model provides a large maximum aperture f / 1.8 at a weight of only 280 grams and dimensions of 65.6 mm (diameter) x 73.0 mm (length). The optical construction of the glass uses an aspherical lens to compensate for aberration and ensure high resolution of the whole frame and 9-leaf circular aperture, providing a subtle "bokeh" effect. The minimum shooting distance, in turn, is 22 cm with a maximum magnification of 0.24x.
The lens has a focus lock button with a defined function and a focus mode switch for instantly switching AF / MF modes. Thanks to the Linear Response MF system, it has to ensure accurate manual sharpening, which is especially important during filming.The design of the lens provides it with resistance to dust and moisture, and a fast, accurate and quiet AF system with a linear drive for precise focusing of photos and videos provides great sharpening.
Sony FE 35 mm f / 1.8 – price and availability
The new lens is expected to be available for sale in August this year. Currently, the producer does not state how much it will cost, but we hope that it will be a budget option, such as is currently "fifty." Certainly, the next full-frame glass budget is needed by the Sony system.
