Sony 28mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

Satisfy your wide-angle fix on your full-frame E-mount camera with the fast and compact FE 28mm f/2 Lens from Sony. It boasts a fast maximum aperture of f/2 for selective focus effects and for working in low-light conditions. In order to ensure high-quality imaging in a range of conditions, the lens incorporates three aspherical elements, including one Advanced Aspherical, and two extra-low dispersion elements, all of which help minimize aberrations. For fast, responsive focusing the 28mm uses a linear motor and internal focus design. Also, it has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction that will permit operation in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Additionally, it has a nine-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh. If you are looking for a wider perspective, the 28mm can accept optional ultra-wide and fisheye converters than will transform the lens into a 21mm or 16mm lens, respectively.

Covering a wide-angle perspective, this compact 28mm will pair nicely with Sony's full-frame E-mount cameras. It can also be used on APS-C format cameras where it will provide a 42mm equivalent focal length.
A fast f/2 maximum aperture provides the ability to create images with a shallow depth of field as well as work in low-light conditions.
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Three aspherical elements, including one Advanced Aspherical (AA) element, are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
A 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.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Sony 28mm f/2.0 reviews

FE 28mm f/2 Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all round lens for A7r This lens at 28 mm and f2 is actually a game changer for the A7r, because with it I can finally reliably get clear in focus images that fully utilize the enormous potential of the a7r sensor. And it does this with a hugely useful field of view for many kinds of shots including especially much better low light images than achievable with the many f4 lenses provided for this camera. It is easy to take strikingly clear in focus shots, partly because it has a greater natural depth of field than any other lens I have used with my A7r. This is the best all round lens for the A7r to date, and with the Zeiss 55mm 1.8 allows image quality to equal that from the D810.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony's best low budget prime! I know there are plenty of people that might look down on this lens simply because it lacks an uber cool Zeiss badge. I'm very satisfied with the purchase and the pictures I get from this lens are sharp and gorgeous! I sold my 35 2.8 zeiss to get this lens, and i don't regret it. Yes it lacks the zeiss T* coating, but it still handles shooting at a direct light source pretty well. Yes it has distortion when shooting in RAW, but that is easily correctable in post processing. It does have some vignetting wide open, but I think it adds character. Build Quality is almost on par with the zeiss lenses, metal construction except for the black ring in the front of the lens which is plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for gimbal work! I bought this to complement my 10-18mm for use with an a6300 and a Pilotfly H2 gimbal. I found that the 10-18 is great for some stuff but often is too wide. Also the 10-18 is only an f/4, so I wanted something a little tighter and a wider aperture. The 28 really fits the bill. On my a6300 it's more like a 42mm. I don't shoot many photos, but for video work in 4K it's super sharp. It also focuses really close, which is great. It's lightweight and perfect for gimbal use. Overall you can't go wrong. Optically I'm sure it's not quite as good as a G Master lens or even the Zeiss Batis 25mm (which I also considered) but frankly it's also not nearly as expensive. And for my eyes, it's plenty sharp enough for 4K video and I do use it professionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just get it! Awesome lens. Bought the 28mm 2 and the 35mm 2.8 for my 3 week trip to Japan. Used the 35mm at first during the day time and the 28mm came out at night for low light shots. But after a few days I just fell in love with the way the 28mm shot and kept the 28mm on full time. 35mm stayed at the airbnb I booked. Low light shots with f/2 compared to f/2.8 is a big difference and the narrow cramped streets / bars of Japan made the 28mm a clear winner. I wonder if I'll love the 28mm as much for shooting in other parts of the world where its not as cramped/narrow. Guess time to book my next trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens for photo and video I purchased this lens to use on my a7s and gimbal, however I found that it gives an interesting look for photography as well. I've used it in a couple weddings so far and this lens is very sharp and has good auto focus. For video, this is a great focal length for a stabilizer. It is not so wide that you have to stand a foot away from what you are recording and it is not so narrow that you have issues with movement speed. I was considering the 35/2.8, however that extra stop of light is nice for receptions. The lens does have some distortion, however it is to be expected on a wide lens. It doesn't bother me at all and just use it to create more interesting photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best you'll get for the price Very sharp lens - even if it's softer at the corners it still looks razor sharp when compared to the kit lens at 28mm. Not sure I'd use it for architecture....raw files have enormous distortion and very high chrom. abberation. Correctible in camera raw and other various software, but there's always sharpness lost when such a drastic correction is made. But for vacations and all around fun it's great! Small, light, fast - well, a prime at this price - doubt you'll see that often. All around great lens unless you're into architectural photography.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little Jewel Initially I paired the almost perfect Sony FE 55/1.8ZA with my A7 but the focal length did not suit my preferred shooting style. I watched the gradual release of alternative new FE full-frame lenses but nothing was tempting or affordable, particularly since Sony strayed from their initial concept of a compact mirrorless system with bulky lenses typical of DSLRs. Finally this FE 28mm f/2 appeared and immediately appealed based on reasonable price, size, weight and balance on the A7. The reviews were positive enough to overcome my caution about sample variation from QA issues Sony seems to have had on certain lenses, so I went ahead with the purchase. The handling was just right and the lack of OSS is a bonus in my opinion, with less to go wrong in this era of all-electronic lenses. My first impressions of image quality were very positive, with excellent contrast, color saturation, center sharpness and bokeh. There is zero flare, even shooting directly into the sun. Only two optical flaws disappointed me - distortion and chromatic aberration. Correction was no problem with the RAW files but this processing degraded sharpness at the edges somewhat so they are not perfect like the 55/1.8. In fact, distortion correction is automatically applied in camera to the RAW file with no choice to turn it off in the menu. Anyway, after more shooting I got over my initial disappointment and came to understand and work with the personality of this little jewel. It is now fixed to my A7 as the perfect walkabout lens. Clearly the exotic 9-element optical design with two ED and three aspherical elements contributes to to the rich color and image pop. No regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lens ever. I am a world traveler, about 3 countries per month in average therefore I need light gear easy to carry. I was a devoted Nikon shooter but Sony changed everything for me. I have owned several sony lenses and used Nikon glass with adaptors, the 28mm is by far the best lense I have ever used on my A7s, perfect for every condition, it's versatility is aweome and not to mention the price.
