Sony 35mm f/1.8 Prime Lens


The Sony 35mm f/1.8 Prime Lens ($449.99 direct) is the first standard-angle lens for the NEX system with a fast aperture. It is the equivalent of the 50mm lenses that were bundled with film SLR cameras before zooms came into fashion, although its price...

Wide maximum aperture. Standard angle field of view. Minimal distortion. Optically stabilized

Pricey. Soft corners unless stopped down

The Sony 35mm f/1.8 Prime Lens is a fast standard-angle lens for the NEX system, but is expensive when compared to comparable SLR lenses.

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...

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

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.
