More Information

Close for comfort

  • Offering a 30mm (45mm on an APS-C sensor) wide angle view, this lens gives you a great focal length for landscapes. Plus, with a minimum focusing distance of 0.095m and 1:1 magnification, this lens is ideal for macro photography and extreme close-ups.
  • This wide angle macro lens delivers a constant f/3.5 maximum aperture, making it ideal for low light situations. It delivers a shallow depth of field so your close-ups get gorgeous background bokeh for that added artistic flare.

Keep your focus

  • Macro photography can be tricky. Small insects or tiny creatures aren't necessarily going to sit still for you. So when you need to move your camera to follow a butterfly or quickly track a jumping cricket, Sony's lens-based Optical SteadyShot image stabilization works to prevent image blur.
  • Whether you're trying to capture the pattern in the wings of a dragonfly or a portrait of your laughing baby, quick autofocusing is crucial. The lens' internal focusing system achieves fast autofocusing so you get sharp, detailed photos.
  • You don't want a noisy camera, especially when you're trying to photograph small creatures. Thankfully, the internal autofocus stepping motor offers smooth and silent autofocusing. So when you're photographing animals and insects the sound of your autofocus motor won't spook them. Quiet autofocus is also great when you're recording video so you don't get the autofocus motor noise in your movie.
  • Unleash your artistic side with the 9-blade circular aperture. When defocusing the background to create a bokeh effect, the circular aperture creates round blurred defocused points of light instead of the usual and less appealing polygonal shape. Plus the constant f/3.5 maximum aperture offers smooth, natural defocusing and a shallow depth of field.

Quality optics

  • The aspherical lens design reduces spherical aberrations delivering high sharpness and contrast resulting in significantly improved image accuracy and quality. The design also reduces the overall number of elements needed so you get a more compact, lightweight wide angle lens.
  • ED (extra-low dispersion) glass reduces chromatic aberration, providing superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. So you get stunning images with exceptional colour quality and higher resolution.

Sony F3.5 30mm Macro

Takes excellent quality photos, can be used as a Macro or prime lens. Using the digital zoom the photos are still good quality with the APSC sensor. Allows amazing closeups of tiny objects (with full digital zoom a fruit fly fills the view). Bit tricky to get macros in bright sun as when you go in close the camera creates a shadow, part of problem is you have to go really close as focal point is just beyond front of lens. Options in this case are to move in front of subject so it's all in shade and lighting is equal, or take a shot partly from the side so subject is all in the sun or use digital zoom and shoot from further back. Lens is fast enough that for most macro shots can do hand held, also easy to change the macro effect by using a smaller f stop but then may need either a tripod.
