Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format

Additionally, a 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality and the lens's manual focus operation permits working with subjects as close as 1.5' away.

Normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Notably fast f/1.2 maximum aperture helps control depth of field for shallow depth of field shooting, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
Two aspherical elements are used to reduce field curvature, distortion, and spherical aberrations for improved rendering and sharpness.
One abnormal partial dispersion element controls color fringing and chromatic aberrations for greater color accuracy and clarity.
Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 1.5'.
SE (Stills Edition) version features clicked aperture detents for more tactile control over aperture switching in 1/3-stop increments.
A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
