Compact and versatile
An ideal second lens, the SEL35F18 prime lens can handle anything from evening shots (thanks to the bright maximum aperture) to beautifully defocused portraits.
Capture smooth, blur-free images
Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
Refined optical performance
Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.
Fast, agile focusing
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
- A versatile, multi-purpose lens - with a focal length of 52.5mm (35mm equivalency) and F1.8 aperture, it’s good for snapshots, portraits, night shots and more
- Compact and easy to carry - lightweight and only around 45mm long, it’s an ideal second lens for when you’re out and about
- Crisper, cleaner results - new optical design reduces spherical aberration and improves contrast even out on the periphery for crisp, sharp image detail
- Built-in image stabilisation - Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation and a large F1.8 aperture enhance handheld shooting in fading light or dimly lit interiors
- Smooth, silent operation - both the motor controlling focus and the one that controls aperture are quiet, smooth and unobtrusive, ideal for shooting video
- Fine tune your focus - if AF (Auto Focus) can’t lock on or focuses on the wrong subject, step in and take total control with DMF (Direct Manual Focus)
- Smooth things out with ED glass - Extra-Low Dispersion glass and two aspherical lens elements minimise distortion and improve image quality
- Discover beauty in the blur - the circular aperture, a hallmark of E-mount lenses, lets you capture beautiful foreground and background blur effects
- Built to last and a joy to use - with a tactile aluminium alloy finish, the lens combines outstanding quality with easy operability
