B&H # SO3528 MFR # SEL35F28Z

INCLUDES FREE   Value $19.99
Sony has managed to squeeze exceptional quality into the extraordinarily compact Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens, making it a near perfect match for full-frame E-mount cameras. It benefits greatly from Zeiss's optical technology, as it utilizes a Sonnar design with three double-sided aspherical to provide the relatively fast f/2.8 aperture with minimal aberrations. The lens is also equipped with Zeiss' T* anti-reflective coating to effectively eliminate flare and ghosting. Taking things up a notch is the linear autofocus motor and internal focusing design, resulting in fast, quiet, and responsive performance in stills and video as well providing a minimum focus distance of 13.8". On top of all this, the lens uses a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh and has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction that ensure it will keep functioning in less-than-ideal weather conditions.

"Love it...Love it!...Nice, sharp, fast, compact lens....The only negative I found in this lens is that if its used with the GH3 or GH4 in automatic focus the focus is very slow... so if you need to focus a subject quickly to not miss a moment I recommend using it in manual focus, the automatic focus works but very slow specially in low light settings it takes a while to identify the subject and automatically focus something that doesn't happen with the panasonic lenses (in a panasonic camera of course) I can not say how it would work in an olympus c"
