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

A 35mm lens with a wide maximum aperture is one of the most useful options in many photographers' bags, and that makes Sony's FE 35mm f/1.8 an intriguing option for a lot of users. Is it right for you? This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage. 

Coming to you from Pav SZ, this great review takes a look at the Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 lens. Wide-aperture 35mm lenses are popular for a huge range of applications, including portraits, weddings, astrophotography, street photography, and much more. It is their wide (though not overly so) focal length and wide aperture that make them so versatile. The FE 35mm f/1.8 comes with a range of useful features, including a customizable focus hold button for increased versatility, an aspherical element for reduced aberrations and field curvature and increased sharpness, dust- and moisture-sealing, and a nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it looks like a nice lens that will offer a lot of versatility for a variety of applications, making it a nice choice for many creatives. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

There is something about shooting ultra wide open on a wider lens that appeals to me more than shooting ultra wide open on a telephoto lens. Maybe because everyone is so obsessed with more bokeh that it kind of drives me a way from that look. This lens would be pretty cool for video especially the amazing Face AF the Sony cameras have now.
