Tech News: Sony Unveils Affordable and Light FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens

By David Schonauer   Monday July 22, 2019

Sony has officially announced the much-anticipated and long-rumored FE 35mm f/1.8 lens for its full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lightweight new lens— just 280g light and 77mm long —will give Sony shooters an affordable, if slightly slower, alternative to the popular Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA, notes PetaPixel. The minimum focusing distance is just 0.22m (~ 0.79ft). The lens barrel features a focus mode switch and a focus hold button for a little bit of customizability. Priced at $750, the new lens is less than half the price of the $1,600 Distagon FE 35mm f/1.4 and $50 cheaper than the Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA lens.
