  • Wide-angle Prime Lens
  • Circular Aperture Design
  • Dust and Moisture Resistant
  • Filter Diameter: 49mm
  • Focal Length (35mm equivalent): 49mm
  • Carl Zeiss quality delivers superior contrast and resolution throughout the image:
  • Outstanding resolution and contrast are the key features of this lens
  • Three double-sided aspherical elements (six aspherical surfaces) effectively control spherical aberration, while extensive application of the Zeiss T* coating not only minimizes flare and ghosting for natural color reproduction, but is instrumental in achieving impressive contrast as well
  • A perfect match for the Alpha 7-series full frame bodies, with outstanding optical performance in a versatile 35mm focal length:
  • The handling and convenience of this wide angle lens for 35mm full frame format bodies is significantly improved by the use of an internal focus mechanism that keeps the length of the lens constant during focusing
  • The light weight of this model also enhances portability as well as handling
  • All of this plus compact dimensions and outstanding image quality make the SEL35F28Z an ideal match for the full-frame Alpha 7-series full frame E-mount bodies
  • Bright F2.8 maximum aperture:
  • A bright maximum aperture of F2.8 enhances shooting convenience, particularly since the same high image quality is maintained at all aperture settings
  • Bright lenses usually end up being physically large, but in this case a new focus lens group design has made it possible to achieve a large maximum aperture in a compact unit
  • A circular aperture design delivers gorgeous bokeh for smoothly defocused backgrounds
  • Dust and moisture resistant design:
  • Like the Alpha 7-series full frame E-mount bodies, critical areas of the lens exterior feature dust and moisture resistant seals that help to ensure reliable operation even in adverse environmental conditions
  • The lens exterior features an elegant aluminum finish, adding sophistication that is consistent with the high quality standards implied by the Carl Zeiss name
  • Supplied dedicated hood matches the lens's compact form:
  • Hood design is a perfect match for the compact lens barrel, contributing to both portability and protection
  • A filter thread is provided in the lens hood itself, allowing 40.5mm filters to be attached while the lens hood is in use

Additional Information

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA The Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 ZA is a prime lenses that is fast, sharp, and provides excellent quality from to edge. Out of all the lenses and different cameras that I've used to the past, I have to say right now 35mm is the best I've seen. I have to say my favorite settings are f2.8, 5.6, and 9. Now I just ordered the Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA, and I will let you know after I spent some time with it, how the two compare side-by-side. I'm thinking that the 35mm be still my personal favorite out of the two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My main squeeze. I use this lens with my A7s, and it's my first autofocusing lens. In fact, it's my first lens that does anything automatically for that matter. I put my 'old school' pride aside and committed myself to learning my new camera and new lens. Truth be told, I love it. While yes there's a certain satisfaction with dialing in everything manually, you know what's more satisfying? Getting the shot. This lens is great and surprisingly versatile. I thought I might get frustrated with 2.8, hoping for something faster, but then forgot that the A7s makes up for it with it's performance at high ISO's, so it's sort of a moot point. Also, the size of the lens is PERFECT for the camera, so I wouldn't compromise the size for an extra stop of light. It's really a great lens, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 35mm lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great image quality in a small package I am using the lens with my a7r. It provides very high image quality even wide open at f2.8, with optimum sharpness around f4 to f/5.6. The lens does the 36mp camera justice unlike many lenses I tried on a 36mp DSLR (another maker) I used to have. My criteria is finely detailed landscapes being reviewed at 100% pixel-peeping on my 25" monitor. The lens is excellent not just in sharpness but in overall tonal rendition (color and contrast). The bokeh is usually good, esp. at f/2.8. The lens provides a very pleasing overall effect - sharp but smooth and natural looking. Being able to get this level of image quality in such a small lens is astounding to me. The build quality seems very good to me - metal plus high quality plastics (not all plastics are created equal). Not only does the lens work well with autofocus but it is a pleasure to manually focus it as well. I can get exact focus very easily and consistently (which I cannot say of the experience I've had with even the best lenses, AF or manual only, on DSLRs).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent resolution and contrast Very sharp and contrasty, good color. Vignetting is stronger than I was hopping for, bokeh is a tad nervous. Overall a great leans for the A7/A7R thanks to its tiny size and minimal weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens The days of big, super heavy prime lenses are finally over. This little 35, attached to my Sony A7R is just great. And it is tiny and weighs almost nothing. Great walk around lens and the f2.8 gives me good Bokeh when I want it. Can't say enough good things about this little lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp, fast focusing, broad dynamic range I sold my Canon gear with three L lenses to go lightweight. This SEL35f28ZA is four oz. I find I get more out of using this one prime than I did from Canon's 24-70mm. I like the tiny hood. I probably would have bought the SEL55F18ZA if I were to do it again, but I'm excited about the FE 90mm macro just announced for next years release. While there are camera combinations that are also excellent the Sony mirrorless fits the bill for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens Extremely sharp and very nice bokeh. A bit of vignetting at some settings. This lens makes for a fantastic compact walk-around package together with Sony's A7 series cameras. Recommended without reservation.
