Sony today introduced the FE 35mm F1.8, the third 35mm prime in Sony’s FE line for full-frame mirrorless.Sony FE 35mm F1.8
In terms of maximum aperture, it lands between the Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA and the Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA, both of which are Sony Zeiss lenses. Of the three, it has the shortest minimum focusing distance for compositions with prominent foreground objects. As you’d expect based on the maximum aperture of each of these lenses, it also falls between the two Zeiss lenses in size and weight (see comparison chart below).
|FE 35mm F1.8||Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA||Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA|
|Min. Focus Distance||0.73 ft.||0.98 ft.||1.15 ft.|
|Weight||9.9 oz.||22.3 oz.||4.3 oz.|
|Size||2–5/8 x 2–7/8 in.||3-1/8 x 4-1/2 in.||2-1/2 x 1-7/16 in.|
Comparing the three lenses, the Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA is a good choice if minimum size and weight is more important than a larger maximum aperture. Choose the Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA if you need the fastest maximum aperture available. The new FE 35mm F1.8 is a great balance between the two, considering price, performance and size/weight.
The Sony FE 35mm F1.8 will be available in August. For more info, see the press release below.
