Sony DT 35mm f/1.8 SAM Lens


A new prime lens for general photography makes a welcome addition to Sony's 'Easy Choice' lens range.The DT 35mm f/1.8 SAM (SAL35F18) was one of three new lenses announced by Sony in July, 2010. Designed to provide an affordable, compact and...

On the Sony SLT-A33 camera body used for our tests, the review lens was a comfortable, well-balanced fit and its light weight was a good match to the relatively light camera body. The plastic mounting plate attached securely and the focusing ring and...

Sony 35mm f/1.4 G


The Sony 35mm f/1.4G is one of those lenses that survived from the old Minolta era. The original design dates back to 1987 - the early days of the Minolta AF SLR system. The current incarnation is basically identical to the Minolta AF 35mm f/1.4G RS...

To G or not to G is the question and the answer is ... no. The Sony 35mm f/1.4G may offer lots of creative potential thanks to its ultra-large max. aperture but technically it is not an overly impressive lens especially in relation to its very steep...

Plastic Fantastic


This is a very good lens for the price. Sony's higher end version sells for $1500, and doesn't offer 7 times the performance.

Sharp centers, light weight, cheap

Loud AF, soft corners at 1.8

Fantastic images at low cost (comparatively)


I purchased this lens for my a35 camera after it was recommended that I add a fixed focus prime lens in my bag. I read a number of reviews and I'm extremely happy with my choice. The level of performance is fantastic. Hand held pictures remained clear...

Low light performance

Excellent buy


Purchased this lens for some low light live performance work and it is excellent! Also had the chance to go shoot some landscape and nature and produced some fo the sharpest images I have yet to capture. Great lens for the money. Like someone else...

very sharp

doesn't fit full frame dslr/ dslt

Amazing Little Lens


This little lens can produce fantastic images (in terms of sharpness, CA, light fall off, bokeh, etc); all despite of its very affordable price. That said, it's made of plastic and feels rather cheap and fragile in your hands, but if you think about...

First Prime


This is a good lens from sony and its price also reasonable that's why every one can try this prime for great portrait picture


Nothing So far

Consumer review by:

The best of the "Easy Choice" Primes


On balance I have to say that regardless of the fact the lens is of plastic construction and mount, it is the highest level of performance between ALL of the affordable primes, which includes the 50mm f1.8 and 85mm f2.8. it is more appropriate on a...

Sharp, reasonably quiet to focus, fast and accurate focus, excellent contrast

Plastic mount and construction

Consumer review by:

Great bang for the buck


Sony put in the stuff that counts (good optics and a fast aperture) and kept the cost down by using plastic construction and a not-silent SAM focus motor. The good optics provide very sharp photographs, the f1.8 aperture lets you blur the background...

Sharp, fast (f1.8), lightweight, inexpensive

Plastic body & mount, not silent SAM focus motor

Consumer review by:



This lens gives 52 mm on an APS sized sensor which is the normal viewing angle. It is fast both in focus and aprature, it handles well on my A-700. The price is high but you get what you pay for.
