A Review of the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM Lens

A wide-aperture 35mm lens is by far one of the most popular choices for a huge range of genres and needs, offering a wide but still relatively neutral focal length combined with a lot of light-gathering and subject-isolating power.  Sony's FE 35mm f/1.4 GM offers the company's best optics in such a lens, and this excellent video review takes a look at it and the kind of performance you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video takes a look at the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM lens. A part of Sony's G Master line, the 35mm f/1.4 has a variety of useful features, including:

  • Two extreme aspherical elements for reduced astigmatism, field curvature, and distortion and increased sharpness
  • One extra-low dispersion element for reduced chromatic aberration and increased clarity 
  • Nano AR Coating II for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast, particularly in backlit scenarios
  • Dual XD Linear motors and faster and quieter autofocus
  • Focus hold button with customizable function
  • De-clickable aperture ring
  • Dust- and moisture-sealing
  • Fluorine coating for fingerprint- and oil-resistance
  • Rounded 11-blade diaphragm for more pleasing bokeh

Altogether, the FE 35mm f/1.4 looks like another premium addition to Sony's respected G Master line. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the lens.

Great lens but there are too many lenses that are between 24 to 35mm. While they all serve their purpose, I have three lens that will do 24-35mm. I miss the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8. I wish they made that for Mirrorless. I know it was crop but if they could manage that for full frame I'd be a happy camper.
