  • GREAT SMALL LENS
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Greekevangelist - June 22, 2020

    Great for scenery, sharp, light, fast. Portraits also good but have to get too close for good bokeh. This is a good lens for taking group photos rather than a 55mm lens. Video bokeh not as good as too wide. Need to get really close up on subject. Is sharp however.

  • Nice Lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by NoLimitMedia - September 3, 2021

    I’m still getting used to it. But for what it’s worth my picture quality is doing wonders with this.plus it comes with a camera hood.

  • The Perfect 35mm for your Sony a7III
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - October 1, 2019

    Absolutely fantastic lens. Great Bokeh, small size, weather sealed, sharp and fantastic results. I was using the Batis 25/2 while I waited for the 35/1.8 to come out and now it's permanently on one of my a7III. Absolutely love this lens and highly recommend it!

  • This lense is great all around
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Izzy - July 13, 2020

    I’ve used this lens for everything from weddings to music videos. Looks great on a gimbal, auto focus is quick, and it’s decent bokeh for a “wide angle”
