Wide-angle prime lens Ideal for travel, shooting in low light, portraiture and landscape Bright F2.8 maximum aperture Compact and lightweight design T* Coating Dust and moisture construction Supplied dedicated hood matches the lens’ compact form A perfect match for a7 and a7R 35mm full frame bodies, with outstanding optical performance in a versatile 35mm focal length E-mount for Sony’s full-frame and NEX range of CSCs Outstanding resolution and contrast Three double-sided aspherical elements control aberration and the Carl Zeiss T* coating minimises flare and ghosting. Until the introduction of coated lenses, the lens surface would reflect a large percentage of the incoming light, thus reducing transmission and making it difficult to use multiple of elements in lens designs. Effective coatings made it possible to design more complex optics that delivered significantly improved performance. Reduced internal reflection contributed to minimum flare and high contrast. Versatile 35mm focal length A fixed focal length remains constant during focusing and makes for a lightweight, portable lens. Bright F2.8 aperture The fast lens combines a compact design with a large circular aperture that offers elegant bokeh. Dust and moisture resistant design Dust and moisture resistant seals allow you to keep shooting in harsh conditions. Supplied lens hood for flare reduction The ALC-SH129 cap-type lens hood works with 40.5mm filters, a perfect match for the compact lens barrel. Sony E Mount Sony’s FE lenses are primarily designed for Sony’s full-frame E-mount compact system cameras, such as the A7 and A7R but will also work with the Sony APS-C NEX range. Carl Zeiss Lenses Unparalleled quality has long been the hallmark of Carl Zeiss lenses, and now over 160 years of optical expertise has been distilled into a series of lenses developed jointly by Carl Zeiss and Sony. Exclusive T* (T-star) coating technology achieves higher light transmission as well as minimal flare and ghosting. That combined with effective compensation for optical aberrations results in detailed rendering with faithful, luminous colors.
