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.

Sony FE 28mm f/2 Overview

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.

question

The filter thread on this lens appears to sit deeper than the front element, raising the possibility of a thick filter touching the glass piece. Has anyone tested the B+W F-PRO 007 49mm MRC Clear Filter with this lens to see if it stands clear of the front element?
Asked by: Anonymous
Filters will work without issue on this lens. They will not touch the front element.

question

Is this lens good for video?
Asked by: Christina
I personally love it for video when using a stabilizer like the Ronin because of the autofocus. However, manual focus is annoying on these lenses because of the focus-by-wire design.

How quiet is the lens when focusing? Can you hear it in a silent room or on the microphone?
Asked by: Thomas
It is fairly noisey when autofocusing. Not a problem for still photos, butI think it might be picked up by an on camera microphone. I replaced it with a Zeiss Batus 25mm f2 which is very quiet and focuses much quicker.

How fast is the auto focus when shooting video on the As7ii? I want to use this lens on a gimbal so need pretty good auto focus.
Asked by: Adrienne
I have an A7lll, and don’t shoot much video. It is a fairly fast focus for photos even shooting ‘continuous’ mode.

How does this lens compare to the Sony FE 35 f2.8?
Asked by: Michael
The 35mm is much sharper, has significantly less distortion, and the color reproduction is better. But, it's also almost double the price so you get what you pay for. Even though the 35mm is a stop slower, it's still great for low light.
