·Filter Thread 49 mmOVERVIEWThe 35mm f/1.8 OSS Alpha E-mount Prime Lens from Sony is a sharp, prime lens for Sony E-mount cameras, including the Alpha NEX-5R, Alpha NEX-6 and the NEX Handycam camcorders. It is a compact, fixed focal length lens which is equivalent to 52.5mm in 35mm equivalency. A fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 means the lens is ideal for blur-free capture of fast moving subjects and for retaining crisp imaging in low light. A quiet linear motor controls focus while an in-lens stepping motor controls aperture, together they offer smooth and virtually silent lens action, which is ideal for shooting video. Direct Manual Focus is also featured which allows for fine manual focus control and is operable even in autofocus mode. Sony's built-in Optical Image Stabilization system provides approximately 4-stops worth of shake control, making the lens even more functional in low light conditions and great when tracking moving subjects in video.Improved optics have reduced spherical aberration and provide uniform contrast across the sensor and sharp images even when shooting wide-open at f/1.8 aperture. The circular aperture helps to create smooth and circular bokeh.Fixed Focal Length, f/1.8 Lens

This compact, large-aperture, prime lens has a focal length of 52.5mm in 35mm equivalency and is approximately 1.75" (45mm) long. It is a bright lens with the capability to handle a wide variety of shooting situations from landscapes and street photography to flattering portraits with beautiful background blur.Optics

Newly designed optics reduce spherical aberration, delivering detailed sharpness and contrast in the central area of the lens as well as at the periphery. The results are clean, sharp images even when shooting at f/1.8 aperture.Silent and Smooth Focus

A quiet, high-speed linear motor controls focus while an in-lens stepping motor controls the aperture. Together they provide extremely quiet operation and smooth focusing as well as quiet and fluid aperture control. These motors are ideal for shooting video since they eliminate excessive lens-drive noise.Direct Manual Focus

This 35mm f/1.8 lens supports DMF (Direct Manual Focus), which enables users to resume manual focusing directly after obtaining focus with AF. This is particularly useful when AF cannot lock onto a subject or continually focuses on an unintended one. It also facilitates fine focusing when shooting portraits with a shallow depth of field.Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization

The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.SPECIFICATIONSFocal Length 35mm

  • Great ASP-C Prime Lens for Sony a6000 Series
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jonno - October 9, 2021

    This is a great prime lens for portraits and mid-range distance shots. I purchased a Sony a6600 recently and I am relatively new to photography. I originally purchased a Sony 50mm without realizing that the a6000 series cameras are built with cropped sensors. So the crop factor is 1.5x, therefore it was a 75mm lens instead of a true 50mm. Well this 35mm lens puts it at 52.5mm which is close enough. It works really well at close range for portraits and when taking pictures of scenery or larger objects. Photographs taken at shorter distance look way better then at a longer distance so I would use this lens for portraits and close ups. This is an ASP-C lens so I would not purchase this if you have a full frame camera. The lens small and lightweight making it great for traveling or if you want a lighter setup. It also works really well in low light but hot here are a few trade offs. You’re going to have to raise the ISO (which adds more grain to the photo) or lower the shutter speed (which tends to make the photos blurry if you don’t have steady hands) I posted some photographs to show what this lens is capable of paired with the a6600 (I edited them in Lightroom after).

  • Brilliant APCR Prime Lens
    Reviewed by Zeroe4 - August 30, 2019

    I love this lens!!! It works really well for low light and shallow depth of field shots. It's also one of my favorite lenses for landscape and cityscape shots. Keep in mind these photos were taken on an old Sony NEX-3N.

  • Great lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tomtom - December 22, 2018

    I decided to go with the 35mm lens over the 50mm. 35 let's you get more in the shot while being closer. I mainly take pictures of my daughter, playing, at Disney or just regular still shots of her posing for me. The light this lens allows in is amazing. I love how much more this lens looks than the lens I got with the camera bundle. Everyone ask what camera I am using. I tell the it's Sony A6000 but I tell them it's the 35mm lens as well.

  • Great all around lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by GregsPhotography - September 10, 2015

    This prime lens makes the perfect companion to my Sony A6000. It works great in low light conditions, AF works very fast and accurate. The build quality is great, and the manual focusing ring feels smooth and very responsive. The color rendition and the bokeh from this lens is absolutely beautiful. The only reason why I did not give it 5 stars is because of the price, I wish it was $100 cheaper. Pros: Size, fast AF, quality Cons: Price

  • Great sharp lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Teamkawi - March 31, 2017

    This is a sharp lens and is highly reviewed for a reason. I can attest to that. It has been my primary lens for portraits and street photography. I use this lens 90% of the time on my Sony A7ii. It is intended for APS-C but still fits this camera. It won't be 35mm because of the crop factor. There will be no vignette if you set it up on auto crop.
