Nimble Wide-Angle

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 bright design, advanced optics, and a sleek stature that makes it a great option for walkaround, everyday shooting, including street, architecture, and travel subjects.

Optics

  • 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.
  • Bright f/2 maximum aperture provides the ability to create images with a shallow depth of field as well as work in low-light conditions.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Autofocus and Design

  • 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.
  • If looking for an even wider perspective, this 28mm can accept optional Ultra-Wide and Fisheye Conversion Lenses, which will transform the lens into a 21mm or 16mm lens, respectively.

Sony FE 28mm f/2 Reviews

Truly fantastic gem.

By Mateusz

Small, lightweight, focuses super fast, super sharp and contrasty with pleasing bokeh and does not cost a fortune - how not to love this little gem? It gives me two extremely useful focal lengths on my camera: 28mm in full frame mode and then approximately 42mm equivalent in APS-C crop mode, which is the true standard focal length for full frame. This is easily my favorite Sony lens.

Excellent value for the cost.

It may not be the best lens out there on the market but it does the job for me. It’s compact and easy to carry. To me, putting a huge lens on a compact camera defeats the purpose of having a compact mirrorless camera.

Great lens for the money!

This lens is amazing. It’s not as wide as the 24mm but just a bit tighter kind of like an iPhone. The price is affordable, the quality of images it produces is stunning!

I just bought this lens to add to my collection and I simply love it. It's a tiny bit soft in the corners, but for the size, quick and silent auto focus and portability you can't beat it. I was a little worried about the 28mm focal length, but it ends up just wide enough (and fast enough) for perfect indoor shots of my kids. I shoot with an A9 because I need something as fast as my kids and I rarely miss a shot with this lens attached.

Great lense for Sony A7II

This lense is a great addition to my Sony A7II camera. I feel for the first time since I started to acquire digital cameras (around year 2000) that finally I have a digital camera that can help me to get (in full frame format) photographs with the same (or even better) quality as I used to get with my old Canon AE-1.

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.

yes, but it will offer the field of view of a 42mm lens since the new 28 is designed for use on the FF cameras.

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.

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.
