High performance and a compact design make the SEL-35F18 prime lens an ideal second lens that's easy to carry around while capturing the action. It's perfect for a wide variety of photos, including snapshots while strolling, night shots (thanks to the bright maximum aperture) and portraits with beautifully defocused backgrounds. Newly-designed optics reduces spherical aberration and coma for sharp images even when shooting wide open. Combined with built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, your photos and videos will be crisp, clear and blur-free.
Compact, lightweight fixed F1.8 lens
This compact, large-aperture, fixed focal length lens has a focal length of 52.5 mm (35 mm equivalency) and is approximately 1-3/4? (45mm) long. Compact and easy to carry around, this bright lens makes an ideal ?second lens? with the capability to handle a wide variety of shooting situations ? from landscapes and snaps around town to lovely portraits with beautiful background blur.
New optical design
Newly designed optics reduces spherical aberration and coma, delivering performance similar to Sonnar T E 24mm f/1.8 ZA and E 50mm f/1.8 OSS in the central area of the lens, and equal or better contrast at the periphery. The results are clean, sharp images even when shooting wide open.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approx.) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.
Silent and smooth focusing for shooting movies
The quiet, high-speed linear motor in SEL-35F18 controls focus while an in-lens stepping motor in the actuator controls the aperture. Together they provide extremely quiet operation and smooth focusing as well as quiet and fluid aperture control. These motors are ideal for shooting video since they eliminate the worry of excessive lens-drive noise.
Superb focusing operation
The SEL-35F18 supports DMF (Direct Manual Focus), which enables users to resume manual focusing directly after obtaining focus with AF. This is particularly useful when AF cannot lock onto a subject or continually focuses on an unintended one. It also facilitates fine focusing when shooting portraits with a shallow depth of field.
In low-light shots or nightscapes, out-of-focus light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
