In addition to being a great choice for snapshots and landscapes, this bright F1.4 35mm full-frame ZEISS Distagon lens facilitates handheld shooting indoors in low light, as well as night scenes. Shallow depth of field at larger apertures and a 9-blade circular aperture design make it easy to create smooth background bokeh for portraits or bridal snapshots. There’s a whole spectrum of imagery that only a large F1.4 aperture can create. A minimum focusing distance of 30cm makes it useful for shooting images of flowers and similar subjects as well.

Sharp and clear from corner to corner

Three aspherical elements, including one precision Sony AA (advanced aspherical) element, combine in a state-of-the-art optical path to effectively compensate for aberration and achieve outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness. That sharpness is maintained even at maximum aperture so optical performance is consistent at all exposure settings.

For low-light shooting and smooth bokeh

The F1.4 maximum aperture of this lens makes it easier to capture clear images in low light, even when shooting handheld. A 9-blade circular aperture design enhances its capability for stunningly beautiful background bokeh when desired. Smooth bokeh can make subjects stand out in images with deep dimensional impact.

Outstanding colour and contrast

ZEISS lenses are renowned for their outstanding colour reproduction and contrast. The ZEISS T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.

DDSSM delivers quiet focus speed and precision

A new DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) system is used for precision positioning of the heavy focus group required for the full-frame format, allowing precision focusing even within the lens’s shallowest depth of field. The DDSSM drive system is also remarkably quiet, making it ideal for shooting movies where focus is constantly changing while the scene is being recorded.

Optimized for movies as well as stills

This lens is designed for moviemaking as well as for still photography. An aperture ring with switchable clicks can be turned ON for tactile feedback when shooting stills or OFF for smooth, quiet operation when shooting movies. It also features minimal focus breathing, an essential quality for movie shooting.

High reliability in harsh conditions

The lens features a dust and moisture resistant design that ensures reliable operation for professional use in harsh conditions.

Quite simply, the Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA is a superb prime lens. You’d expect sharpness to be high across the frame from such a premium optic, and it doesn’t disappoint. Even with the Alpha 7 Mark II test camera shooting at ISO1600, detail is exceptionally sharp.

PhotoReview

The Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 is a strong performer and well worth considering by owners of Sony’s FE mount cameras who want a fast prime lens with a moderately wide angle of view. This lens is able to capitalise on the superior high ISO performance of Sony’s recent ‘full frame’ cameras, making it a...

The Digital Picture

Being rather colorful from an aberration perspective, this lens displays obvious spherical, axial, and lateral CA and especially the former aberrations at the widest apertures. Wide-open vignetting is expectedly strong, defocused highlight bokeh is not round, and sunstars rendering is not great.

OpticalLimits

It isn't easy to come to a conclusion about the Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA. Technically it has some weaknesses but then we have seen these weaknesses in other representatives of this class (high-speed wide-angle primes).

Imaging Resource

The new Sony FE 35mm ƒ/1.4 Zeiss lens is another fantastic prime lens for the Sony A7-series cameras, and it gives shooters an excellent, general-purpose wide-angle focal length perspective that's great for travel and street photography as well as portraits.

I bought this lens and very happy with the quality images And the build is absolutely solid

Recently bought this.. Best lens for those who are looking for best shallow depth of field.. The bokeh is just awesome ..The aperture ring is an added advantage. Build in quality is good.. Quite heavy.. But can fit to Gimbal perfectly. Perfect lens for those who like to shoot weddings and Potraits.

I've only owned this lens for a couple of weeks and was keen to test out both its landscape capability and its ability to capture a close up when the lighting and texture asked you to take that shot. The in hand balance of the A7r2 with this lens attached is also impressive...

This is my main lens. Super clean, crisp and detailed. Af is excellent. Love the aperture ring. Smooth bokeh. Ive read reviews saying this lens is overpriced and that there is inconsistency in the build quality. Maybe I got lucky but this lens is incredible and absolutely worth the price.

Sony

The FE 35mm F1.4 ZA is an outstanding lens, I would rate them the best portrait lens and is perfect for Weddings & Low-light. If you're thinking of buying this Lens, you should. Yes it is very expensive, but you're going to end up having outstanding images.
