Optics: The Sony SEL35F18 (E 35mm F1.8 OSS) prime lens is compatible with the
Sony α NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The lens has a 35mm equivalent
focal length of 52.5mm, and is recommended for a wide variety of photos, from
snapshots to portraits. The bright F1.8 aperture makes it a good lens for low
Note: Using this lens on a full-frame camera may result in vignetting -- causing the corners of the image to become darker than the center.
Optical SteadyShot (OSS): Equipped with Optical SteadyShot
(OSS), the lens compensates for blur caused by camera shake for normal handheld
photography. OSS also reduces the reliance on high ISO settings when shooting in
dark environments, which greatly enhances the effectiveness of the Hand-held
Twilight and Anti-Motion Blur shooting modes. Optical SteadyShot gives you a
4-stop shutter speed advantage when activated.
Quiet Smooth Focus: The SEL35F18 has a high-speed linear
motor controls the focus while an in-lens stepping motor in the actuator
controls the aperture. The two motors work together to provide extremely quiet
operation and smooth focusing, plus quiet and fluid aperture control. This makes
them ideal for shooting video because it is unlikely any lens noise will be
picked up by the microphone.
Lens Hood: The lens includes the ALC-SH112 Lens Hood to
reduce flare and ensure maximum image quality. The lens hood should be removed
when using the camera's built-in flash to avoid blocking the flash light. You
can store the lens hood by mounting it onto the lens backward. When installed,
the lens hood adds approximately 1-3/16" to the total length of the lens.
Focusing: The lens can be used with the NEX-series cameras in the
auto-focus, Direct Manual Focus, or manual focus modes. You can switch between focusing modes
in the camera menu.
