FE 28mm f/2 Lens with UV Filter Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's
Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens
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.
  • 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.
Chiaro Pro 49mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 49mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

FE 28mm f/2 Lens with UV Filter Kit Reviews

Wonderful street lens

By Don
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-16

I use this with a Sony A7C, a perfect combination of light weight and small inconspicuous size. The lens is very sharp, focuses quickly, has excellent color imaging, and is reasonably priced. I tried a different 28 first, a f1.4 lens, which was about twice the size and weight of this f2.0 lens, and while it was slightly sharper, it was far too large and heavy for street work. This Sony 28 f2.0 is now my go-to lens, along with a second A7C body and an 85mm f1.8. The perfect combination for quick street and documentary photography.

Pretty good lens and small

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!

What I needed

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-01-06

I'm a manual, vintage lens kind of guy. I shoot lots of film and have a number of Leica M mount lenses which are perfect for the A-series cameras. The problem I have is that the wide angles I have are not great with the digital sensor so I decided to get the 28. It is light enough and small enough for me. The optics are plenty good enough for nearly anyone. The manual focus is decent for an electronic lens. I considered the 24-105, but it was just too big for the way I wanted to use the lens so my kit is the 28 and M-mount 50 and 90. That is all I need.

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.

Great lense for Sony A7II

By Jorge
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-26

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.

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.

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.

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: tom
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.

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.

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.
