Full frame, fast, small, and lightweight

Although this fast F1.8 lens weighs a mere 280g (9.9oz.) and is just 65.6mm x 73mm in size, it offers outstanding image quality that makes it a great all-around choice for photography and moviemaking. It is a full-frame lens, but balances well with APS-C bodies, providing an equivalent focal length of 52.5mm that is ideal for portraits and snapshots.

High corner-to-corner resolution

An aspherical element is strategically implemented in this lens’s advanced design to suppress optical aberration and achieve high resolution right out to the image periphery. Smooth bokeh is also available when needed, supported by a 9-blade circular aperture mechanism that contributes to natural looking bokeh.

Reliable AF tracking for any situation

The narrow depth of field available at a wide F1.8 aperture makes focus critical. The quiet, fast response and high precision of this lens’s linear-motor AF drive system ensure precise focus not only for stills, but also for movies where “wobbling” is employed for delicate continuous focus control.

Move in for impressive close-ups

A 0.22m (0.73ft.) minimum focus distance and 0.24x maximum magnification make this lens useful for closeups as well as general photography and moviemaking. High optical performance is maintained at close range, providing the quality needed to create stunning images of tabletop subjects, flowers, and more.

Customisable focus hold button

A conveniently placed focus hold button not only offers easy focus hold control, but can be assigned to a variety of other functions from a menu accessed via the camera body. The focus hold button can be assigned to display grid lines to aid composition, to adjust white balance, and other functions that support efficient, versatile shooting.

Easy manual/auto focus switching

A focus mode switch that allows instant switching between auto and manual focus modes can be a great advantage when shooting subjects or situations that require fine manual focus adjustment.

Dust and moisture resistant design

A dust and moisture resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.

Natural, linear manual focus response

Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise.

Still, apart from fully expectable disadvantages, you get also a long list of significant assets. Overall, when it comes to the performance of the lens, there are practically no serious reservations. If I wanted to complain a bit, I would carp only and solely about the price.

TechRadar UK

With fast autofocus, a great build and the ability to capture very sharp images at even its widest aperture, this is a stellar addition to the FE lineup.

Andy Westlake examines a lightweight prime that fills a gap in Sony’s lens range for full-frame mirrorless Sony FE 35mm F1.8, Verdict:

DP Review

The Sony FE 35mm F1.8 is one of Sony's most versatile primes, worthy of serious consideration by all Sony full-frame shooters who desire high quality in a small, lightweight package. Autofocus is swift, and it's extremely sharp wide open.

PC Magazine

The Sony FE 35mm F1.8 is proof that you don't need an exotic f/1.4 lens to get crisp shots with blurred backgrounds.

The Digital Picture

The 35mm focal length is very useful and having that focal length in a prime lens often brings the benefit of a wide aperture. While not an f/1.4 lens, this lens' f/1.8 aperture is still wide and the moderately wide aperture size enables a compact, lightweight design that has its own obvious...

Camera Labs

The Sony FE 35mm f1.8 is a very good addition to Sony's 35mm full-frame lenses: It surpasses both its 35mm ZA siblings in optical performance but stays small and light, and has a reasonable price tag.

I bought this lens in December and have been blown away by it since! It’s super sharp and fantastic for film! Due to lockdown restrictions I haven’t been able to film as much as I would like, but looking forward to getting out later in the year and trying it!

Have always been a fan of 35mm field of view as it's balance of compression and perspective is pleasing to my eyes. The lens is very sharp and it's well built although it's a mixture of plastic and metal. Fast aperture allows me to shoot handheld at night without using flash.

After damaging my 18-55 kit lens, I researched for a long time before deciding to buy this Prime lens. Its realyl fast, silent, small and produces some wonderful images with great Bokeh. I just need to improve my photography skills now to get the best out of it!

For context, I shoot video, not tons of photos. I bought this for a video project after seeing Brandon Li's review of it, as I had to do similar work as he did (whereby I need a lightweight all-purpose lens on a gimbal *Ronin SC*) that I could shoot nearly everything on (wide, medium, close-ups).

This is a standard 35mm lens work well on A7III. My copy has good sharpness. Clarity is pretty good but I wish Sony made a G version. Lens also works quite well with video and continuous focus.

I am so glad I brought this lens. It is well built and the image quality is amazing as expected from a Sony Lens. I had a third party 35mm which I was not happy with so I bought this and the difference is like night and day. I mainly use it for video work.

Great lens, small, lightweight and great results! Really enjoying using it on my Sony A7iii
