About the Sony 35mm F/1.8


Your “backup” lens should be as good as a primary lens, but also ready to handle anything, from a live event to the quick shots any photographer might need in a jiffy. The SONY 35MM F/1.8 OSS E MOUNT LENS fits the bill as a “renaissance lens,” in a manner of speaking, thanks to versatility and a ton of features:

Product Highlights
  • Compact and lightweight, as any good “second lens” should be, but not without sacrificing performance, thanks to a F1.8 aperture and 35mm equivalency focal length of 52.5mm.
  • The autofocus is beautiful, of course, and what else do you expect from Sony? But even better is the fact that you can switch to manual focus with the Sony 35mm and hold every picture to your professional standards.
  • Subtle background blurring is a must-have for many occasions, from wedding receptions to portraits. The round aperture of the Sony 35mm delivers a stunning background blur that doesn’t distract from the frame.

Add the Sony 35mm to your toolbox of lenses and you’ll never feel unprepared for a gig again.

Learn about the SONY 35MM F/1.8 OSS E MOUNT LENS

It’s on. The wedding reception is in full swing, people are having the first of their many drinks, and the DJ just played one of those Top-40 songs that means the party is ready to go all night. And where are you, the amateur or even the professional photographer? Worried about finding a lens. We here at Adorama don’t want you panicking and driving home to find another lens; we want you to arm yourself with the perfect “second lens,” capable of being carried around to any gig when you need to capture the action. But don’t think of the SONY 35MM F/1.8 OSS E MOUNT LENS as a mere backup—no. It’s versatile and powerful enough to serve as a second lens when your first simply won’t suffice. So have a glass of champagne and sit down with us as we discuss all the use you can get out of your Sony 35mm lens.

  • Aperture, aperture, aperture. In real estate, it might be “location, location, location,” but in photography, there are few things more important than aperture. A good aperture allows you to grab plenty of light, constructing beautiful shots even in low-lighting situations. The night shots with the Sony 35mm are of stunning quality, which means that even if your next gig is in a dimly-lit ballroom, you’ll still be able to take all of the beautiful images that are quite literally dancing all around you.
  • Multipurpose is an apt word for the Sony 35mm, thanks to its focal length of 52.5mm(35mm equivalency), making it appropriate for an entire range of shots, from portraits and night shots to quick snapshots of the bridal party. You wondered why we call this lens versatile? Because the Sony 35mm is capable of acting as your emergency lens no matter what your primary lens was accomplishing.
  • Crisp, clean images. You might have the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to thank for that, as well as the F1.8 aperture, but you’d be surprised at just how crisp images turn out even after we told you all about these features. Why? Because the Sony 35mm is nothing if not an overachiever, providing you with crisp and professional photos, even when you’re in a pinch.
  • Smooth and silent autofocus is a must-have for any lens, and this e-Mount lens f/1.8 is no different. No different in the sense that it provides the quiet, effective autofocus you’ve come to expect from Sony lenses—and if you’re working a live event, you can’t have your autofocus getting in the way of beautiful moments.
  • Background blur. Is there any effect better than the background blur? An effective background blur gives a lot of contrast to your subjects in the foreground, not robbing from the image but instead enhancing it until it’s something fresh and exciting—and far more professional than any amateur point-and-shoot can hope to imitate. The Sony 35mm achieves this background blur in spectacular fashion thanks to the—what else?—aperture, which is circular and designed precisely for these kinds of shots.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more versatile, able lens here at Adorama than the SONY 35MM F/1.8 OSS E MOUNT LENS. Which is to say: why keep looking?
