Product Research

Features

Overview: The Sony FE 40mm F2.5 G (SEL40F25G) G-series standard prime lens is compatible with the Sony α interchangeable lens cameras with the E-mount. The lens is recommended for use with full-frame cameras, but can be used on cameras with APS-C image sensors. (The lens has a 60mm equivalent focal length when used on APS-C cameras.) The SEL40F25G lens is ideal for both still and video creators. The lens comes with front and rear lens caps.

Lens Construction: The 40mm lens features 9 lens elements in 9 groups, including three aspherical lens elements for sharp detail from corner-to-corner. The state-of-the-art optical design makes this an ultra-compact and lightweight lens that's easy to transport. It is dust and moisture resistant, making it appropriate for outdoor use.

Aperture: The 7-blade circular aperture helps to create images with beautiful bokeh, making the subject stand out while the background is out of focus. The f/2.5 maximum aperture lets in lots of light so you can shoot at high shutter speeds in low light.

Linear Motors: The SEL40F25G is equipped with two linear motors to deliver fast and precise autofocus with excellent tracking performance.

Click Control: A 2-way switch on the lens barrel controls the click response when turning the aperture ring. When shooting movies, you can turn off the click sounds so it won't be picked up with the camera's microphone. For photographers that like the tactile feedback, the click sounds can be turned on.

Focusing: The SEL40F25G features a 2-way focusing switch (AF-MF) lets you switch from auto to manual focusing. In addition, the Linear Response MF (manual focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly when focusing manually.

Lens Hood: The lens includes the ALC-SH166 cap-type lens hood that blocks unwanted light from the edges preventing lens flare, and protects the front element from the elements and accidental contact. The lens hood, when attached, adds approximately 1/2" to the overall length of the lens. Unlike many lens hoods, it cannot be reverse mounted to the lens when not in use.
