Sony's most advanced technology is packed into this high-performance E-mount lens, delivering eye-opening G Master resolution and bokeh with extraordinary AF speed and precision. For a large aperture 35-mm lens it is remarkably compact, and a great choice for applications where an ideal blend of mobility and superb image quality is required.
Amazing resolution in a compact 35-mm prime for any situation
Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements in a G Master design take advantage of the short mirrorless flange-back distance to deliver stunning contrast and resolution in a compact lens. Further enhancing the lens's superior optical quality are an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that suppresses chromatic aberration and Sony's Nano AR Coating II that maintains superb image clarity even in any lighting conditions.
Lightweight and compact for excellent mobility and handling
Even though it employs two precision XA (extreme aspherical) elements and delivers outstanding G Master quality, this compact lens fits easily in the palm of your hand and weighs only 18.5 oz (524 g). The FE 35 mm F1.4 GM offers excellent mobility and handling in the widest possible range of environments and shooting conditions.
Refined G Master bokeh and broad versatility
XA elements suppress onion ring bokeh, an 11-blade aperture mechanism produces an almost circular aperture even when the lens is wide open, and painstaking spherical aberration control at the design and manufacturing stages contribute to gorgeous bokeh at F1.4. Design and manufacturing refinements have made it possible to deliver a minimum focusing distance of 0.89 ft (27 cm) and maximum magnification of 0.23x.
XD Linear Motors ensure fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking
Two of Sony's remarkable XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors provide the high thrust efficiency needed for fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking, maximizing the advantages of the E-mount system. State-of-the-art control algorithms developed specifically for the XD Linear Motors minimize vibration and noise, while Sony's Linear Response MF feature provides direct, linear manual focus response.
Professional control and reliability
A focus hold button, focus ring, and other controls support smooth, efficient operation. The focus hold button can be assigned to a number of other functions via a camera body menu, providing direct access to functions that are vital to the user's personal workflow. A fluorine front element coating plus a dust- and moisture-resistant design2 ensure high reliability in challenging environments.
This is the magnifying factor of a lens. Macro lenses will often be described by their “magnification factor”. A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject.
