The newly introduced Sony FE 35mm F1.8 full-frame fixed focal length weighs only 280 grams, and with its F1.8 it's quite light-strong. When used on APS-C cameras, the Kb equivalent focal length is 52.5 mm.
According to the manufacturer, the new optical design has an extremely aspherical element that prevents imaging errors and guarantees a high resolution over the entire image area. The fast and quiet linear motor AF drive system is intended to ensure precise focus even when shooting films. In manual mode, the focus ring operates with linearly responding focus adjustment. The minimum adjustment limit is 0.22m. The aperture consists of nine lamellas.
The design should be resistant to dust and moisture. The dimensions of the SEL-35F18F are 65.8 mm (diameter) with a length of 73 mm. The filter diameter is 55mm. The E-Mount lens will be available in August for 699 Euro.
