Complementing the lens itself, the Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the wide-angle prime with a 55mm UV filter.
Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens
The fast and compact FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens from Sony provides a versatile wide-angle solution for your full-frame E-mount camera. It boasts a maximum aperture of f/1.8 for selective focus effects and for working in low-light conditions. To help ensure high-quality imaging in a range of conditions, the lens' aspherical element reduces aberrations and field curvature while maintaining contrast and edge-to-edge sharpness. For fast, responsive focusing, the 35mm uses a linear motor and internal focus design, while a customizable focus hold button locks focus when recomposing and can be set to activate other functions, including Eye AF, AF On, Aperture Preview, Shot Result Preview, or Bright Monitoring among others. Also, this lens 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.
Covering a wide-angle perspective, this compact 35mm 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 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
A 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.
Customizable focus hold button locks focus when recomposing and can be set to activate other functions, including Eye AF, AF On, Aperture Preview, Shot Result Preview, or Bright Monitoring among others.
An aspheric element is incorporated in the lens design to reduce aberrations and field curvature while maintaining contrast and sharpness.
A linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.
AF/MF switch on the lens barrel conveniently allows for fast selection between autofocus or manual focus without having to access any menus.
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.
Chiaro Pro 55mm 99-UVBTS Brass UV Filter
The Pro 55mm 99-UVBTS Brass UV Filter is Chiaro’s top-performing protective UV filter offering 99% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand the highest-quality glass and other essential features for uncompromised image fidelity and premium construction.
To achieve superior 99% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished Schott 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. The durable brass filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling is crafted to help ensure 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.
99% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished Schott glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro can offer a 99% transmission rate, which is the highest possible transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows 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 Schott Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The Schott glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures superior 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.
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
The durable brass filter ring offers a substantial, premium feel. The unique properties of brass minimize the chance of jamming or binding when you're screwing the filter onto your lens or stacking filters.
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 that helps offer better options to grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
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.
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.
This lens is compatible with the A6000 and would give you an equivalent focal length of 52.5mm due to the APS-C sensor in that camera.

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.
