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.
- 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.
