Samyang AF 35mm f / 1.8 FE lens for Sony E
An effective shot of a popular focal length, Samyan's Sony E-mount AF 35mm f / 1.8 FE is a wide-angle prime that combines a lightweight, portable design with a bright f / 1.8 maximum aperture. The optical design incorporates two extra-low dispersion elements and a pair of aspherical elements, which help suppress spherical and chromatic aberrations to improve sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity. Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast when working in bright lighting conditions. The lens's linear STM autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' AF systems for fast, quiet, and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control. Additionally, a custom switch allows intuitive adjustments to a variety of camera and exposure settings by turning the lens focus ring.
Prime Wide Angle Compact is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
The bright maximum aperture of f / 1.8 suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
Two extra-low dispersion elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for better clarity and color rendering.
Two aspherical elements control spherical distortions and aberrations to improve sharpness and resolution.
An ultra multi-coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and neutral color balance.
The built-in linear STM autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony camera focusing systems for fast, quiet and precise AF control. Manual focus override is also available to refine your focus position.
The internal focus design maintains the full length of the lens and prevents the front of the lens from rotating during use.
The custom switch can be used for lens-based control over selected exposure or shooting functions, such as aperture selection, with additional settings via future firmware updates.
The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a nice smooth bokeh quality.
The included lens hood helps block out stray light so it doesn't cause flare or ghosting.
