Sony has managed to squeeze exceptional quality into the extraordinarily compact Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens, making it a near perfect match for full-frame E-mount cameras. It benefits greatly from Zeiss’s optical technology, as it utilizes a Sonnar design with three double-sided aspherical to provide the relatively fast f/2.8 aperture with minimal aberrations. The lens is also equipped with Zeiss’ T* anti-reflective coating to effectively eliminate flare and ghosting. Taking things up a notch is the linear autofocus motor and internal focusing design, resulting in fast, quiet, and responsive performance in stills and video as well providing a minimum focus distance of 13.8″. On top of all this, the lens uses a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh and has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction that ensure it will keep functioning in less-than-ideal weather conditions.

From The Manufacturer
Sonnar® T* FE 35 mm F2.8 ZA (SEL35F28Z), P mode, 1/100 sec., F5, +0.7 EV, ISO 400, Auto white balance
Perfect performance for the α7 series
The handling and convenience of this compact 35 mm lens are enhanced by an internal focus mechanism that keeps its length constant during focusing. Lightweight design further augments portability as well as handling. All of this plus outstanding ZEISS® resolution and contrast make this lens an ideal match for full-frame α7 series bodies.
ZEISS® resolution from corner to corner
Outstanding resolution and contrast are the key features of this lens. Three double-sided aspherical elements effectively control spherical aberration, while extensive application of the ZEISS® T* coating not only minimizes flare and ghosting for natural color reproduction, but is instrumental in achieving impressive contrast as well.
Beautiful bokeh and low light performance
A maximum aperture of F2.8 facilitates shooting in a wide range of lighting conditions, with consistent image quality at all apertures. Bright lenses are often large, but a new focus lens group design allows a large maximum aperture in a compact lens. A circular aperture design contributes to gorgeous bokeh for smoothly defocused backgrounds.
Shoot with confidence anywhere
Some of the most exciting images are captured in challenging environments. A dust and moisture resistant design means that the lens will continue to perform reliably in moderately wet or dusty conditions, so you can shoot with confidence wherever those great shots are found.
Supplied dedicated hood matches the lens’ compact form
The supplied ALC-SH129 is a cap type lens hood. This design is a perfect match for the compact lens barrel, contributing to both portability and protection. A filter thread is provided in the lens hood itself, allowing 40.5 mm filters to be attached while the lens hood is in use.
