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.

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.

I know this fits the Sony A7rii, how is the picture quality of this lens on the A7rii when shooting stills?
Asked by: mark
With the R series cameras it is best if you stay with GM and G series lenses. The R series cameras have such high resolution - using other lenses often falls short and images suffer.

question

Does it work with Sony VG-900?
Asked by: Anonymous
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.
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.
