Designed for Sony's line of APS-C-format E-mount cameras, this lens will provide a normal-length 45mm equivalent focal length, which is a good option for general purpose shooting.
True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with a 3.7" minimum focusing distance and a 0.9" minimum working distance for capturing close-ups of your subjects.
An aperture range of f/3.5 to f/22 allows for operation in a wide range of shooting situations and enables photographers to better control depth of field.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Three aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
An internal focus design helps contribute to fast autofocusing speeds and prevents the lens' overall length from changing during use.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Will this 30mm APS-C lens transfer image to a full frame sensor at 45mm? Will it still be able to go 1:1 on Full Frame sensor? What would min focus be on a Full Frame?
Asked by: GREGORY
This lens will be 45mm equivalent on a full frame Sony FE mount sensor camera. The issue is that less than half of the available megapixels will be used. It will be 1:1 and minimum focusing distance will be the same as on APS-C sensor. Minimum focusing distance and magnification does not change with sensor size.

Can anyone recommend a how-to resource for using this lens with Sony A6000? For example, when I press the shutter button, it zooms out.
Asked by: jeff
For regular photography, the Sony 30m f/3.5 lens should work like your other ones, except for the fact that it is a prime lens and doesn't zoom or change in angle-of-view. The lens itself doesn't zoom, but its focusing mechanism will shift forward and back in order to focus on the subject. Make sure to stay at least 3.74" / 9.5cm away (the lens' minimal focal distance) and it should autofocus without problem.
