Sony FE 35mm F1.4 GM

The 35mm F1.4 GM features a superior optical design, including two XA (Extreme Aspherical)elements and an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that deliver outstanding corner-to-corner resolution, even wide open. The 11-blade circular F1.4aperture mechanism creates beautiful bokeh that is a hallmark of the G Master series. Fast focusing is attained through the XD (Extreme Dynamic) linear focus drive system. This lens sports class-leading size and weight, providing great handling and mobility.

Advanced  Optical Performance      

The FE  35mm F1.4 GM delivers incredible G Master quality and performance in a  compact and lightweight design, ideal for any occasion. Using Sony’s most  advanced optical design and manufacturing technology, it delivers  extraordinary resolution and gorgeous bokeh with precision focus performance.  Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements, an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass  element and Nano AR coating II all contribute to high-contrast,  high-resolution results with corner-to-corner sharpness and dramatically  reduce chromatic aberration, flea and ghosting.

F1.4 max aperture      

The  F1.4 max aperture provides extraordinary brightness and depth of field, allowing you to isolate your  subject from the foreground and background with amazing light gathering  capabilities when shooting wide open. The unique combination of wide F1.4  aperture with 11 circular aperture blades and two XA (extreme aspherical) lens  elements deliver on the G Master promise of ultra-sharp in focus areas of  your image with beautiful soft defocused bokeh. The fast F1.4 aperture  is  not only good for shallow depth of  field, but ideal for situations that require more advanced light gathering  capabilities like indoor, night and astral photography, making this lens  perfect for any occasion.

Two XA (Extreme Aspherical)  lens element      

The FE 35mm  F1.4 GM incorporates two extremely precise XA (extreme aspherical) elements -  manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision - in an innovative optical  design that achieves stunning G Master resolution throughout the image area,  while delivering smooth, creamy bokeh in out-of-focus areas. Two XA elements  compensate for coma, field curvature, and astigmatism, that can be problems  with wide-angle large-aperture optics. These elements also enable closer focusing  distance and contribute to the compact and lightweight design.




Beautiful,  natural-looking bokeh      

While the two XA elements effectively suppress onion  ring bokeh, the  11-blade circular aperture maximizes the beauty of this large-aperture  prime-lens, contributing to impressive images in which the subject stands out  against a smoothly defocused foreground and background, as well as perfectly  round points of defocused light. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides  that create unappealing, polygonal-shaped defocused points of light. This  lens overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture  almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by  2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.


An ED glass element

The two XA lens elements plus innovative mechanical, optical and control technology achieve a minimum focusing distance of just 10.6” (27cm / 25cm when focusing manually) with a maximum magnification of 0.23x (0.26x when focusing manually), making it possible to shoot impressive close-ups with smooth, creamy background bokeh. The combination of F1.4 maximum aperture and the flexibility to choose your shooting distance affords plenty of control for stills as well as movies. This compact 35mm lens can deliver spectacular images with an extremely wide variety of subjects.

Close-ups with stunning bokeh      

The two XA lens elements plus  innovative mechanical, optical and control technology achieve a minimum  focusing distance of just 10.6” (27cm / 25cm when focusing manually) with a  maximum magnification of 0.23x (0.26x when focusing manually), making it  possible to shoot impressive close-ups with smooth, creamy background bokeh.  The combination of F1.4 maximum aperture and the flexibility to choose your  shooting distance affords plenty of control for stills as well as movies.  This compact 35mm lens can deliver spectacular images with an extremely wide  variety of subjects.


XD Linear Motors for fast, precise,  quiet focusing  

The FE 35mm F1.4 G Master lens  incorporates a precision  internal focus mechanism consisting of two XD (extreme  dynamic) Linear Motors that easily keep up with the high-speed capabilities  of today’s most advanced camera bodies, taking advantage of their full  autofocus speed, precision, and tracking potential to capture the most  dynamic subjects. New control algorithms make it possible to drive the lens’s  focus group smoothly and without delays for responsive, silent, precise and  continuous autofocus in both still and video modes.

New Nano AR Coating II enhances clarity      

A new Nano AR Coating II has been  developed that can be evenly applied to large lens elements or highly curved  element surfaces to suppress internal reflections and minimize flare and  ghosting for clear, crisp imagery. Despite the lens's wide angle of view,  Nano AR Coating II maintains high clarity and contrast throughout the entire  image, even in difficult light.

Compact,  lightweight design    

This  lens weighs just 1.155lb. (524g) and measures in at only Φ2.99” x 3.78“(Φ76 x  96 mm). It’s small size and light weight enhance mobility when used with  compact E-mount Full-frame or APS-C bodies and make up a well-balanced system  that is ideal for use on gimbals or accessory grips.

52.5mm  equivalent on APS-C bodies    

The FE 35mm  F1.4 G Master lens is highly recommended for APS-C as well as full-frame  users. It balances well on smaller APS-C format bodies, providing a very  useful focal length of 52.5mm (full-frame format equivalent). 52.5mm is great  for taking snapshots around town, shooting scenery while hiking or mountain  climbing, and much more.

Aperture  ring with switchable click stops    

In  addition to providing the fast, hands-on response required for still and  moviemaking applications, the FE 35mm F1.4 G Master lens’s aperture ring  includes a switch that turns its click stops on or off: ON for tactile  feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for silent control when shooting  movies. The combination of quiet XD Linear Motors and the quiet operation  available when the click stops are off is not only great for smooth, seamless  aperture control when shooting movies, but also for shooting theater,  concerts, and events where noise must be minimized.

Customizable  multi-function focus hold button    

The  focus hold button not only performs its primary function to lock focus when  recomposing but can be customized via the camera body menu settings to a  number of other functions depending on your needs. In addition to Focus Hold,  these custom functions include: Eye AF, AF On, Aperture Preview, Shot Result  Preview or Bright Monitoring.

Instant  auto/manual focus selection      

Instantly  and quickly switch between auto and manual focus via an AF/MF switch on the  side of the lens. This makes operation faster and easier as you let the  camera and lens focus for you or decide to take control and manually focus on  the precise point you choose.

Natural, linear manual focus  response    

Linear Response MF (manual  focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle  control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a  corresponding change in focus, so control is feels immediate and precise in  both still and movie modes.

Dust and moisture resistant for robust reliability    

The dust and moisture resistant  design make this lens appropriate for heavy-duty outdoor use, especially when  combined with a camera that employs weather resistant measures.

Moviemaking  advantage    

The FE  35mm F1.4 G Master lens has clear advantages for moviemaking. With an wide 35mm  angle of view on full frame bodies and 52.5mm on APS-C bodies or Super 35mm  cameras, two XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors for fast, precise autofocus  and tracking, a bright F1.4 maximum aperture for beautifully defocused  background bokeh, excellent close-up performance and a class leading compact  and lightweight design, this lens is ideal for all types of content creators.  In addition to the small size and light weight, its internal focus design  makes it convenient for use on compact gimbals or grips for vlogging and  other applications.

Fluorine front element coating    

The front lens element features  a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while  making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become  attached to the lens surface.

Accepts a variety of filters      

Unlike many other wide-angle  lenses, the FE 35mm F1.4 G Master Lens accepts 67mm filters. Since its  internal focus mechanism means that the front element does not rotate when  focusing, circular polarizing filters can also be used when shooting  landscapes. Polarizers for landscapes, ND filters for movies, and other  filter types can be used for extra creative control.
