Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens
Prime Versatility
Fast and compact, the Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 mixes a versatile wide-angle focal length with a bright design and a sleek form factor. As a wide-angle, this lens excels in a variety of situations, from street shooting to landscapes to travel, and the f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in available lighting and benefits controlling depth of field.
Optical Design
  • One aspherical element controls distortion and spherical aberrations, enabling greater sharpness and even resolution from corner to corner.
  • Fast f/1.8 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 Handling
  • Autofocus system uses a linear motor and internal focus design to provide quick and precise focusing performance along with silent focusing while recording videos.
  • Customizable focus hold button for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Linear Response manual focus control offers more natural handling and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
Chiaro Pro 55mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 55mm 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
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.

How can I easily and fast, change the aperture settings on a SONY fx6, using this lense?
Asked by: Per
The Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens would require you to adjust the lens' aperture using the controls built onto the Sony FX3 Full-Frame Cinema Camera. The Online Instruction Manual on Sony's website for the Sony FX3 Full-Frame Cinema Camera States "1: MODE (Mode) button → use the control wheel to select [Aperture Priority] → press the center of the control wheel. 2: Select the desired value by turning the front/rear dial." It also states "1: MODE (Mode) button → [Manual Exposure] → press the center of the control wheel. 2: Select the desired aperture value by turning the front dial. Select the desired shutter speed by turning the rear dial. You can change the setting of the front/rear dial using MENU → (Setup) → [Dial Customize] → [Dial Setup]."

Would you recommend this for copywork of paintings? I'm getting a Sony a7RII and am not sure which macro lens to get. I'm coming from a 60mm Nikon that works well for my space.
Asked by: Thomas
I would not recommend this lens at all. It has terrible chromatic aberration and it is definitely it suited to macro work. Check out the reviews and you'll see. I returned mine after 1 day of use. Sony has several other 35mm options that are great. They are all a little pricey but you might also look at Sigma art series or Tamaron. If you need Macro go with the 90mm which is fantastic.
