The AF 35mm F2.8 FE is packed with features and features seven elements in six groups; two aspherical lenses and one high refractive lens with Ultra Multi Coating to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion.
For full frame sensors, the focal length most closely resembles the human eye. For APS-C types for Sony alpha 6000 and 5000 series users the lens is equivalent to approximately 52mm, which is also one of the most popular focal lengths among photographers.
Fast and accurate autofocus is ideal for the capture of outdoor events such as hiking, sports events and for landscape photography. It also has a minimum focusing distance of 0.35m and is ideal for street, portrait and close focus photography.
