Sharp, versatile lens

  • Excerpt: I'm completely new to the world of mirrorless and DSLR cameras, but I do own the kit lens, this, and the SEL50mmf18 as well. I find myself reaching for this one quite often, as the focal length is fairly versatile, while still producing great bokeh for portraits. Very happy!

Great all round lens

  • Excerpt: Needed a ~30mm focal length lens for a general photography. This covers street and some portraits so a very versatile lens. f1.8 gives great bokeh and lowlight performance that other alternatives might not have. The only real competitor for this lens would be the Sigma 30 due to its value, but for a little more, you wouldn't ever need to upgrade in the 30mm range if you bought this lens. Outstanding sharpness and good images!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great lens, okay value

  • Excerpt: The lens performs wonderfully. The IQ is good; the focusing speed is fast; it also focuses quietly, which is good for video (although my standard is low, coming from a Canon 50mm f1.8, which is noisy as hell). The only turnoff is the high price. I compared my copy against an SEL50F18 of my friend's.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Expensive

Great lens for the a6000

  • Excerpt: The image quality from this little lens is simply outstanding at all apertures. The sharpness, contrast, and color from the SEL35F18 are simply outstanding. The bokeh is pretty nice, but you have to either get fairly close to your subjects or have a fairly large distance between the objects in the field of view for the bokeh to really pop.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Does Not Look "serious"

Great in low light

  • Excerpt: Just shot a wedding rehearsal in a dimly lit Chapel. Did not want to use a flash to distract the participants. The Sony 35mm f/1.8 put out beautiful pictures. The wedding couple comments on how they look more natural than the profession photographers photos that were taken on the wedding day.

excellent lens for low-light

Anthony Carrabino, Amazon

  • Summary: I own various Sony and Zeiss lenses for my Sony NEX-7. This 35mm has become my favorite and most useful lens. I wish i bought it sooner. The OSS (image stabilization) provides greater flexibility in low-light situations such as taking pictures in restaurants and at indoor events. I can use f/4 at 1/15 or 1/12 and take clear, usable photos without resorting to using f/1.8, which typically blurs group photos. I highly recommend this lens.

Great lens

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens, and used it for a whole and enjoyed it and got some great pictures out of it. However, I ended up returning it because I was using it primarily for indoor shots of my kids and the length of 35mm (FF=52mm) was not wide enough for most of my situations. If you are looking for this focal length though, I would recommend it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
