  • Conclusion: This is a wonderful high quality fast prime wide-angle lens for a Minolta film body. It will be a wonderful high quality fast prime wide-angle lens if Sony ever produces a full-frame digital body. At $1400 and more than 1 lb. of weight, we cannot recommend this lens for use on a small sensor camera.

Sony 35mm f/1.4 G ( SAL-35F14G ) - Review / Test Report

31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: To G or not to G is the question and the answer is ... no. The Sony 35mm f/1.4G may offer lots of creative potential thanks to its ultra-large max. aperture but technically it is not an overly impressive lens especially in relation to its very steep price tag. The resolution is rather poor at large aperture settings and this is, after all, the primary playing ground of this lens.

Sony 35 mm 1.4

31 October 2008
  • Summary: The Sony 35 mm 1.4 is a solidly built lens with a great intensity. The resolution of this lens, tested on a camera with APS-C sensor, is the highest above aperture 4. At full aperture, the resolution in the center is low. The resolution in the corners remains behind on the resolution in the center in all cases. The other optical properties too (distortion, chromatic aberration, vignetting) are not bad, but less than you would expect because of the high price.
  • Pros: Solid construction, High Intensity, From 2.0 high resolution in the center, from 4.0 very high resolution
  • Cons: High price, low resolution at 1.4, resolution in the corners remain behind on the center, sensitive to chromatic aberration
