Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Overview

Fast, sharp, and loaded with the latest technology, the Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Lens from Sony offers full-frame E-mount shooters a classic wide-angle focal length with excellent optical performance. Offering a maximum aperture of f/1.4, shooters will enjoy excellent performance in low-light conditions as well as the ability to create images with a shallow depth of field. Ensuring excellent imagery are three aspherical elements and one Advanced Aspherical (AA) element which combat aberrations. Along with this, the lens uses a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating to effectively eliminate flare and ghosting to create a sharp, contrasty image.

Photographers and videographers will enjoy fast, responsive focusing due to the implementation of a direct drive Super Sonic wave AF Motor (SSM) and an internal focusing mechanism. There are tactile control options as well, including an AF/MF switch and a physical aperture ring, which can be de-clicked for smooth iris changes during video. Smooth bokeh is also a characteristic of this lens due to the use of a nine-blade circular diaphragm. And, the lens is dust and moisture resistant for use in less-than-ideal conditions.

Based on the Zeiss Distagon optical concept, this lens uses a design with 12 elements in eight groups that helps achieve the large maximum aperture of f/1.4 while helping to minimize vignetting and spherical aberrations.
A wide-angle prime designed for full-frame E-mount cameras, this 35mm is also compatible with APS-C models where it will provide a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers a wealth of control over focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
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.
One Advanced Aspherical (AA) and two aspherical elements are incorporated into the optical design for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other spherical aberrations.
A direct drive Super Sonic wave Motor autofocus system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contributes to more natural, intuitive manual focus control. An AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
Physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

question

I own this and on the A7Rii it says that Eye AF feature is not possible on this lens. Since it's a native mount lens made by Sony, I am confused. Shouldn't Eye AF work?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have the lens and the eye focusing works fine on my A7ii. But like the previous poster noted, I have the function assigned to one of my buttons.

What are your thoughts between the Sony Distagon ...

What are your thoughts between the Sony Distagon T* FE 35MM f/1.4 [SEL35F14Z] versus Sony - 35mm f/1.8 FE [SEL35F18F]. Money is not an issue but I still can't decide?
Asked by: Jim
We chose the 1.4 for more light. My wife uses this lens more than any of the other great lens. She loves the pictures she gets without flash.

question

What are it's advantages over the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM bound with a Metabones IV (witch I do 'already have, with latest firmware) - if we do the abstraction of price and that it's more elegant to not have to do with adapters..)? :Is the Bokhe and softer f1.4 til f2.8 a real advantage for portraits, has it better 3D effect over the latest Canon ?
Asked by: Alain
The main advantage of using this lens over a Canon with an adapter is simply that this is a native Sony E-Mount lens. Adapters are very nice and have come a long way, but they still are not flawless. You will get a perfect performance as far as control of the lens and auto focus when using a native lens. This also happens to be a Zeiss Distagon T* lens, which is a very beautiful and high quality lens.
