A Review of the Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens

A fast 35mm lens is one of the staples of many photographers' kits, making Sony's FE 35mm f/1.8 an intriguing option. This great, comprehensive review takes a look at the lens to help you decide if it deserves a place in your camera bag. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent review takes a look at the Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 lens. Wide-aperture 35mm lenses are a favorite of many photographers, from portraitists, to wedding shooters, and even astrophotographers, as they offer a very practical and versatile focal length that can excel in many situations along with the combination of great low-light and shallow depth of field capabilities. Sony's version offers lots of features, such as a customizable focus hold button that can be set to other functions, such as Eye AF or aperture previewing. It also features an aspherical element to reduce aberrations and field curvature and improve sharpness, dust- and moisture-sealing, and a nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it looks to be like a great option for Sony shooters. Check out part one of the review above.

I've been really loving this lens for the few months I've owned it. Optically it's amazing but I do somewhat feel it lacks character in a way.
