Take portrait shots like a pro with this compact, lightweight lens. An excellent lens for your APS-C sensor type camera. Great for snapshots, portraits and a wide range of other applications.
Large F1.8 maximum aperture
In combination with the in-body image stabilization provided by α series cameras, the bright F1.8 maximum aperture of this lens offers a significant advantage for hand-held shooting in low-light situations. The high resolution of this prime lens and the smooth defocusing achieved by its large F1.8 aperture can be utilized to create images that have impressive depth and three-dimensionality.
Compact, lightweight design
The SAL35F18 adds the important 35mm focal length to the “Easy Choice” series. The “Easy Choice” series offers compact, lightweight lenses at reasonable prices that are attractive to entry-level users as well as intermediate and advanced photographers. On an APS-C sensor the focal length of this lens is equivalent to 52.5mm, a versatile length that will cover a range of applications from landscapes through snapshots to portraits and more. The bright F1.8 maximum aperture further enhances the utility of this lens in diverse shooting conditions. At only 170 grams, this lens is the lightweight champion among lenses of the same focal length from other manufacturers. It can be added to a lens kit system and carried around without adding appreciable weight.
Uncompromised features and performance
At 0.23 meters the minimum focusing distance of the SAL35F18 is the closest in its class, making it possible to move in for spectacular close-ups. The front filter mount does not rotate when the lens focuses, and this is a distinct advantage for polarizing filter use. A distance scale is also provided.
Smooth autofocus operation
SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor) achieves smooth autofocus operation. Autofocus signals received from the camera body control a motor built into the lens. The internal motor directly drives the focusing group for smooth autofocus operation.
Most lenses of this focal length are bright, large aperture designs. If a competitor were to implement internal image stabilization in a lens of this type, the lens would become too large and heavy for convenient handling. The unrivalled compact dimensions and light weight of this lens have been made possible thanks to the in-body image stabilization provided by a A-mount cameras.
