Sony Distagon T FE 35mm F1.4 ZA Full-Frame E-Mount Prime Lens - SEL35F14Z
Take snapshots while on vacation or impressive portraits with this Sony 35mm f/1.4 E-mount lens. This prime E-mount lens incorporates advanced optical coatings and aspherical elements so that light is transmitted perfectly throughout the lens without diffraction, ghosting and chromatic effects taking over your photo. These coatings also improve contrast substantially so that the camera works in harmony with it to create great images.
When you're using this Sony camera lens wide open, it's extremely fast thanks to the f/1.4 aperture, and the circular shape produces smooth bokeh in the background made up of circles rather than polygons. This also helps your subject in the foreground stand out. This lens includes a responsive aperture ring so that you can change your aperture on the fly, and because the ring offers appropriate resistance, it's easy to tell what setting you have selected. Fix a 72mm filter on the end of this lens to add UV, polarizing or ND effects. Whether you are spending time outdoors or in the studio, this Sony 35mm f/1.4 E-mount lens is a fast lens that's suited for portraiture and wide-angle landscapes.
- Unmatched ZEISS T* (T-star) coating
Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss® -- and this superb lens features the ZEISS T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces. The T* coating contributes to outstanding image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. Not simply applied to any lens -- the T* symbol only appears on multi-element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path, therefore guaranteeing the highest quality
- Circular Aperture
When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This 'bokeh' effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. á lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result
- Aspherical lens elements
Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped "aspherical" elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight
- Responsive aperture ring
A responsive aperture ring offers positive action that will satisfy professional photographers and moviemakers alike. The aperture ring click stops can be switched on or off as required. "Off" is the preferred setting for moviemaking since it results in the least aperture operation noise. When "On" the ring provides tactile feedback that is useful when shooting stills
