High-Speed Wide-Angle Prime
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 and speed. Suitable for a variety of subjects, this lens excels in street, landscape, and lifestyle situations, and the bright design is ideal for available lighting and selective focusing needs.
ZEISS Optical Design
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Autofocus and Handling
  • 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.
  • AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over the focusing mode.
  • 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.

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
There is only 2/3 of a stop difference in the maximum apertures of these lenses and they would both be very sharp. One might choose the Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Lens if they are shooting more video being that the lens offers a de-clicked aperture ring, while someone looking to spend less but needs the low light performance might choose the FE 35mm f/1.8 instead.

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.

question

Can someone recommend a good protective filter for this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
The B+W 72mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter would be recommended. This is very well made with excellent quality glass. http://bhpho.to/2flTRdU
