The Compact Wide-Angle Prime
Sony has managed to squeeze exceptional quality into the extraordinarily compact Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens, making it an ideal partner for travel, street, and landscape applications, which prioritize both image quality and portability.
ZEISS Optics
  • Based on the ZEISS Sonnar optical concept, this lens uses a design with seven elements in five groups that helps achieve the large maximum aperture of f/2.8 while simultaneously reducing flare and improving contrast.
  • Three double-sided aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
  • ZEISS T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Autofocus and Handling
  • Linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • Modest f/2.8 maximum aperture helps achieve the sleek and lightweight design that is ideal for travel, measuring about 1.5" long and weighing just 4.2 oz.
  • Included with the lens is a dedicated cap-style lens hood that is extremely compact and prevents flare. It also features its own 40.5mm filter thread in addition to the 49mm thread located on the lens.

question

I'm going to purchase this lens for my Sony A7 so I'll have a lightweight small lens that I can have while skiing. For bright snow pictures would you suggest a circular polarizer filter and if so which one is the best?
Asked by: Anonymous
A circular polarizer can be a good option for skiing, as it will darken your exposure by two stops. For a great choice, I suggest the B+W 49mm circular polarizer http://bhpho.to/1DXAFty. Should you want to darken by more than two stops, another option you can try is using a variable neutral density filter, such as the following made by Rodenstock: http://bhpho.to/1DXAWwJ

question

No image stabilization? Do the Alpha 7 and 7R, the cameras this lens is intended for, come with built-in image stabilization?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the new A7 and A7r models do not have stabilization built into them. Going forward with this system Sony will be offering lenses with the stabilization built into them. This particular one does not, but there will be models introduced within the next year to two years which do.
