About the Sony SEL30M35 30mm f/3.5
Discover new worlds of photographic detail with this macro lens from Sony. Designed to work exclusively with their NEX-series cameras and camcorders, it lets you take razor-sharp, lifelike close-ups that showcase the nuances of your subject — from the soft details in a baby's face to the faint lines in a flower petal. Its 30mm focal length and excellent image quality make it a fantastic choice for all-around shooting, too.
The SEL30M35 performs equally well when capturing video. Thanks to an internal stepping motor and rear-focusing design, its smooth, quiet operation makes it the silent partner you need for high-quality movie making. Plus, the filter mount doesn't rotate during focusing, providing hassle-free use of polarized filters.
