An effective take on a popular focal length, the Sony E-mount AF 35mm f/1.8 FE from Samyang is a wide-angle prime mixing a lightweight and portable design with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. The optical design incorporates a two extra-low dispersion elements and a pair of aspherical elements, which help to suppress both chromatic and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting in order to achieve higher contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens's linear STM autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' AF systems for quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control. Additionally, a Custom Switch enables making intuitive adjustments of a variety of camera and exposure settings by rotating the lens's focusing ring.

Samyang AF 35mm f/1.8 Reviews
Can't beat the light weight
Compact, light, big enough aperture and good image quality. This has been my everyday carry since over a year ago, for photography or videography.
Small, light and excellent sharpness
See Dustin Abbott or SonyAlpha blog for the details. It is a winner and the lens that stays on my Sony A7iv most often.
VERY SHARP IMAGES ON SONY A7RII, COULD NOT ASK FOR SHARPER IMAGES. FOCUSES FAST , SILENTLY, AND ACCURATELY. LIGHT WEIGHT, SMALL SIZE AND INCLUDED CASE IS VERY NICE. ONLY NEGATIVE IS LENS HOOD THAT DOES NOT LOCK ON TOO WELL AND MOVES OUT OF POSITION TOO EASILY.
Great lens with a very reasonable price
A very good and light lens to carry all day long and make extraordinary photos and videos.
Just amazing......Get it if you love 35mm
Very affordable and amazing image quality on Sony a7r iii. I own the Sigma 35 1.4 E mount lens and the Samyang seems to focus faster and works better with eye af than the Sigma. The Sigma lens is sharper than the Samyang wide open at 1.4. The weight and size of the Samyang makes it better for travelling.
Sharp, Lightweight, Accurate AF
I was adapting a Canon 35mm F1.4L onto my Sony A7R IV, and this lens is sharper than that combination, plus way smaller and lighter. Love it. I've been shooting it mostly at F2 and found I needed to use a smaller focusing point for accurate focus. Eye Focus is accurate. I didn't bother buying a UV or Protective Filter for the front, I just figured I'd buy a whole new lens at this price point if something happens. I did however, buy a polarizing filter and ND filter. I also bought the Lens Station for updating firmware and doing fine adjustments, but this lens copy didn't need any.
Front focus issues
Bought this lens for how light and versatile it appeared. Sadly it had a lot of front focusing issues as well as AF issues. I had a difficult time reading faces. I wanted this lens to.work, but it wasn't for me.
Extremely Versatile Lens
Not a professional photographer by any means but I am very pleased with this lens. It's extremely versatile for the detail driven automotive photos I take, compact and at a great price point. Highly recommended if you're still using that kit lens!
